Rav's Message

Dear Friends,

As I mentioned two weeks ago, we have begun implementing security measures to help ensure -- with G-d's help -- the safety of our Shul and its members.

This week, we placed a new combination lock on the downstairs front door of the Shul. The door will always be accessible only after punching in the combination. The procedure adds only a few seconds to the process of entering the Shul and many additional layers of security.

We have also begun a more ambitious project of helping provide security to our neighborhood as a whole. Although our Shul is blessed with a sophisticated camera system, courtesy of a generous grant, grant monies do not cover hiring security personnel. We have therefore reached out to a professional Israeli security team to discuss providing security on Shabbos. Although we would like to start this project for the Bialystoker, our goal is to involve our entire neighborhood and provide security to our the neighborhood Shuls.

If all of us in the neighborhood get involved, an annual donation of $100 should defray the cost of the service and ensure -- again, with G-d's help -- the security of us all. I would ask all of us -- Shul members, neighborhood residents, and friends of the Shul who may live elsewhere but care deeply about our welfare -- to make a tax-deductible gift of $100 to the Bialystoker to help cover the costs of the security service. If you feel that you cannot afford $100, please make a donation in accordance with your abilities. [You can make a donation here ,r go to general donation, mark security in the comment box]

In the merit of our creation of this security service, may we never face a situation where we need it.

With wishes for a wonderful Shabbos,

Rabbi Zvi Romm
