Rav's Message

Today we mark Tu B'Av, described by the Talmud as one of the happiest days for the Jewish people. The Talmud gives various explanations for why Tu B'Av is such a happy day. An examination of all the reasons reveals a common theme: Tu B'Av is a day on which difficult problems and situations were resolved.

Something that I am constantly thinking about -- and I know many of you think about it as well -- is how best to grow and develop our community so that it can continue to be a bastion of Torah until the coming of Moshiach. While all the various institutions in our community play important roles in that process, I would like to devote the next few weeks to discussing how our Shul, the Bialystoker Synagogue, can contribute significantly to ensuring a robust Torah-based community in the Lower East Side.

Let's start with something simple but profound:

It is a personal joy for me each morning to watch our four daily minyonim in action. The sweet sound of daily Tefilla sustains our Shul spiritually, as well as constantly bringing new people from all over the New York area to join the minyonim.

With all the beauty of the minyonim, there is room for improvement. We need more mispallelim to join the less robust minyonim; we need mispallelim to come on time; we need mispallelim to feel comfortable leading the davening.

It is a privilege to host the daily minyonim in Shul. As a community, we need to realize that we have an obligation to make an extra effort to ensure that the minyonim are well-attended.

If you would like to help an effort to make our wonderful minyonim even stronger, please be in touch with me at

With best wishes for a Tu B'Av that begins resolutions,

Rabbi Zvi Romm
