Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

We feel a special sense of privilege to celebrate our son Moshe's Bar Mitzvah tonight. (He becomes Bar Mitzvah tonight, on the ninth of Nissan.) The Bar Mitzvah celebration will be more intimate than what we had originally anticipated, but we are reminded that the essence of becoming a Bar Mitzvah is the joy of becoming obligated in Hashem's mitzvos. That joy does not require a party, or leining, or any of the other trappings we normally associate with a Bar Mitzvah celebration. We look forward to being able to schedule a more public celebration once the current pandemic is over. Until then, we will try to make the most of the intense family time we have together to focus on creating an environment for Moshe to continue his growth in Torah and mitzvos -- now as an adult. May we all share simchas together!

We will not, of course, have a Shabbos HaGadol Drasha in Shul this Shabbos. I would like to schedule a Drasha for 12 noon this coming Monday. More information will be forthcoming.

I would like to urge all those who plan to sell chometz through the Shul to do so by Monday, April 6th. The unusual circumstances of this year necessitate that you make these arrangements somewhat earlier than normal.

It is now about three weeks that most of us have been confined to our homes. We are appropriately socially distanced, but we have learned that we are not alone. We are a community -- even when we do not see one another. The power of our connection through conference calls and emails makes us all stronger. We will use that strength to emerge from this moment of crisis.

I wish to remind everyone that no one should be spending any part of Pesach (or any other time) with people who are not part of their immediate family. Parents should not travel to children; children should not travel to parents; no one should be a guest at anyone else's Seder or any other meal. As counter-intuitive as this is, this is necessary to save lives. This is even true if you feel you have had the COVID-19 and "recovered." Minyanim should not be made either, even if all the participants have "recovered" from COVID-19. We are collectively fighting a battle against a powerful -- if invisible -- enemy, and we all need to play our part to protect everyone in our community.

I urge anyone who needs any help of any type to be in touch with me at -- We will do our best to connect you to people who can help you. Together we will strengthen one another!

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos,

Rabbi Zvi Romm
