Artscroll Gemaras Missing

A number of volumes of the Artscroll Shas are missing from K'hal Tzemach Tzedek.

If you have removed one from the shul please return it as soon as possible so it can be used by those who learn in the shul.

Cheder 8th Grade Boys Tested on Gemara

For over 2 weeks Rabbi Soble’s גמרא class worked very hard, during Cheder and their free time, studying in preparation for a פארהער by Rabbi Lesches on גמרא מכות פרק א.

Last Thursday Rabbi Lesches came for the פארהער and was impressed as to how good the children knew the גמרא. Rabbi Lesches encouraged them to continue learning in this manner and to go from strength to strength.

Birchas HaNehen Shiur Series Reminder

Tu' B'Shvat at Hillel of RCC

A diverse crowd of 80 students, faculty and community members participated in a Tu B’Shevat Seder at SUNY Rockland, conducted by Rabbi Naftoli Citron of the Carlebach Shul in Manhattan and hosted by the Center for Jewish Life/Hillel.

Participants learned the significance of Tu B'Shvat, exploring deep kabbalistic concepts in light of contemporary issues such as environmental awareness and our connection to Israel. As the seder progressed through the four spiritual levels of Assiyah, Yetzirah, Briyah and Atzilut, participants made the brachos on fruits of Israel and grape juice, and shared their personal mitzvah resolutions.
