Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

Last week, I shared a link developed by Rabbi Joe Wolfson and a team of student volunteers at NYU who are working to help people book Covid vaccine appointments. Please reach out to them at if this information is relevant for you and please share this information with others who could benefit from it.

Today is Taanis Esther. In most years, we view the fast day as merely a prelude to Purim. This year, I believe, the fast takes on additional significance. It is just about a year since the Covid-19 pandemic has become a significant part of our lives. Every fast is an opportunity to beg the Almighty for mercy. Let us use this Taanis Esther to pray to Hashem and ask Him to remove this dreadful pandemic and its far-reaching effects on the world. Centuries ago, the fasting of the Jewish people in the face of looming catastrophe brought about incredible results, which we commemorate each year on Purim. Our prayers and fasting have profound power. Let us use them this year to address the catastrophic events which continue to surround us.

We have added two public Shul readings of Megilla this year. There will be an additional Megilla reading tonight at 8:30 PM and an additional Megilla reading tomorrow at 10:30 AM. Numerous Shul windows will be open for those readings in particular, to increase ventilation, so please be sure to dress acccordingly.

May this Purim enable us to see Hashem's Hand in our lives as we did so many centuries ago.

With wishes for a freilichen Purim and a wonderful Shabbos.
