Welcome Greenwalds!

Welcome to Boruch Greenwald and family on their move to our community (Ash Street)!

Sponsor Uriel Ash's 135 Mile Bike Ride & Help Chai Lifeline

Dear Friend,

In a few short weeks, I will I"YH bike 135 miles from Lakewood NJ to Camp Simcha (together with other riders riding for Camp Simacha), an extraordinary overnight camp that gives children with cancer a vacation from illness that restores their spirits and renews their determination to fight illness. I'm writing to ask you to help sponsor my ride to raise money for this incredible camp and organization.

I am undertaking it to raise funds and awareness for Chai Lifeline, the international organization that provides year-round emotional, social, and financial support to more than 4,300 children and their families every year. Chai Lifeline's goal is to bring joy to children and hope to their families, enabling them to live full and happy lives despite the presence of illness.

Camp Simcha and its sister camp, Camp Simcha Special, are the organization's flagship programs. Every year these two camps offer 430 children a chance to forget about illness and just be kids again. (To learn more about Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha special, visit http://www.campsimcha.org. To learn more about all of Chai Lifeline's free programs and services, visit http://www.chailifeline.org.)

I will be biking to camp on Tuesday and Wednesday Aug. 3rd & 4th. My objective is to raise $3,600 by then and I hope you will help me reach this goal. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Please contribute, either by visiting my web page at the Go Mitzvah site http://www.gomitzvah.org/go/unmash or sending a check, made payable to Chai Lifeline, to me at:

96 East Willow Tree Rd
Spring Valley, NY 10977

If your company has a matching gift program, your gift may be doubled or tripled. If you send the paperwork to me with your check, Chai Lifeline will complete the form and send it to your employer.

Thank you for supporting me, and in doing so, helping children and their families cope with the diagnosis, treatment, and aftermath of serious pediatric illness.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone who might be interested in supporting Chai Lifeline.

Best Regards and THANK YOU for your support.

Tizku Lemitzvot, have an easy fast and Kol Tov!

Farbrengen Tonight in Honor of AriZal's Yarzeit

There will be a farbrengen tonight, Thursday, July 15, following the 9:30 PM Maariv minyan at Tzemach Tzedek in honor of the AriZal's Yarzeit on the 5th day of Av.

Rabbi Isaac Luria Ashkenazi, known as Ari HaKadosh ("The Holy Lion") passed away on the 5th of Av of the year 5332 from creation (1572 CE). Born in Jerusalem in 1534, he spent many years in secluded study near Cairo, Egypt. In 1570 he settled in Sefad, where he lived for two years until his passing at age 38. During that brief period, the Ari revolutionized the study of Kabbalah, and came to be universally regarded as one of the most important figures in Jewish mysticism. It was he who proclaimed, "In these times, we are allowed and duty-bound to reveal this wisdom," opening the door to the integration of the teachings of Kabbalah - until then the province of a select few in each generation - into "mainstream" Judaism. - Source: Chabad.org
