Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

This week we celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the creation of the State of Israel, a watershed event in modern Jewish history. We mark this event this Shabbos with a special kiddush (thank you Yitzchok Dawidowicz for sponsoring!) and a special shiur on Shabbos afternoon at 6:10 PM. In the shiur, we will learn and discuss Kol Dodi Dofek , the seminal essay of Rav Soloveitchik -- delivered originally as a lecture in 1956 -- in which he outlines the religious significance of the State of Israel. I look forward to seeing you at the shiur.

I wish to remind all our members and friends about the upcoming brunch scheduled for Sunday, April 29th, at 10:15 AM. It is a wonderful opportunity for us as a Shul to come together, celebrate and support our Shul, and pay tribute to Rabbi Sholom Rephun and his decades of service to the Jewish community. I sincerely hope that all of us will participate in some way. It is the least we can do to show our gratitude to an institution which is at the center of our religious lives.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos,

Rabbi Zvi Romm

In addition to "political" action, Israel would greatly benefit from "economic" action at this time.
One of the best ways to show your solidarity with Israel is to buy Israel bonds.
The single role of Israel Bonds is to strengthen Israel's economy.
