Rabbi Kilimnick's High Holiday Message

It is August 18th and I am writing this message from our apartment in Yerushalayim. My dear Mechutan, Alex Hornstein, always allows us to stay at his place in David's Village which is opposite the Jaffe Gate and the David Citadel. The view is breathtaking and it’s the ideal place to witness the majestic character of the Holy City. As I write this message I am inspired by the view and the meaningfulness of this sacred place which Nechie and I are able to experience during our time in Yerushalayim.


Positive Encounters

Over the next month, we will be greeting people with many different verbal formulations. As Rosh Hashanah arrives we are familiar with Shana Tova Umitukah, with Yom Kippur we may say Gemar Chatima Tova, and for Sukkot we often chant Chag Sameach. These are only one of many options we have to extend friendly salutations to our neighbors.
