Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

Perhaps the most memorable blessing uttered by Bil'am in this week's Parsha concerns the beauty of the sanctuaries of the Jewish people. Our Sages understand that Bil'am was speaking of the greatness of the Shuls and Batei Medrash and the central role that they play in Jewish life.

It seems appropriate, therefore, that we kicked off a summer project this week to beautify an essential part of our downstairs Beis Medrash -- our collection of seforim and Jewish books. We have an impressive library in our Beis Medrash. Unfortunately, the library has not been kept up as well as should be, and the shelves were in a state of disarray.

With the incredible assistance of Aharon Packer, our Shul began this week to reorganize the library. Our hope is to not only organize the ample seforim we already have, but to add to our collection. This will enable the many people who already use our Beis Medrash for learning or consulting Jewish books to have an easier and more meaningful experience.

May our reorganized and expanded Beis Medrash library bring even more Torah to even more people!

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos ,

Rabbi Zvi Romm
