What to put in the Middle

On the night of Shavuot, there is a very beautiful custom which is referred to as Tikun Leil Sahvuot, when we symbolically “complete” the entire Torah. Literally, the word Tikkun means “Repair,” and on Shavuot we are in some way repairing our connection to Torah. It could be that if we missed a Torah portion during the year, we can make it up on the night of Shavuot. Or the Tikkun could be about our commitment to Torah.

President's Message - June/July 2016

As I write this this Presidential message for the bulletin my thoughts and prayers are focused on our dear Rabbi Rabbi Shaya Kilimnick who will begin his month long hospitalization today enduring chemotherapy which will prepare him for a bone marrow transplant on the 24th of May.  We pray for a Refuah Shleymah.  We pray for strength for him and the entire Kilimnick family. Rabbi Kilimnick has continued to be a role model and teacher for us since his illness began.  He has demonstrated courage and resilience as he has fought leukemia.  We look forward to Rabbi resuming his place in our Shule, hearing his thoughtful insights of Torah, his wisdom of Judiasm, and his beautiful voice of prayer.
