Jewish young adults from Rockland, Westchester, Orange and the Lower Hudson Valley region will depart on Tuesday, January 11, 2011 for their first trip to Israel as part of the worldwide Birthright Israel program, which provides free guided trips to Israel.

The 10-day trips are for people ages 18-26 who have never visited the country on a peer group trip. They will be led by Rabbi Dov Oliver, director of Hillel of Rockland, based at Rockland Community College.

Local Event for Chabad Burn Victim

There will be an event for women and girls, LifePlex for Leizer, to raise funds for Leizer Galperin NEXT Motzai Shabbos, January 22, from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM at LifePlex, 18 College Road in Monsey.

There will be dance & exercise classes for both adults and children, swimming, a rock wall, a moon bounce, dance machines, a gym, food, raffles and much more!

Leizer Galperin is a 6 year old Lubavitcher boy from Eretz Yisroel who suffered severe burns on more than 80% of his body when his family's home caught fire a few months ago. To date, Leizer has endured 16 surgeries, including the amputation of both of his legs and some fingers, and has many more operations scheduled on his way to recovery.

Please make an effort to show up to this event and help spread the word to neighbors and friends. Thanks to the generosity of LifePlex, every dollar will go towards little Leizer's treatments.

Extra Lainings This Shabbos

As per the custom that everyone should have an aliya on the Shabbos prior to Yud Shvat, or on Yud Shvat itself if it falls out on Shabbos as it does this year, there will be extra lainings this Shabbos at Tzemach Tzedek beginning at 8:30 AM in the backroom of the shul and then multiple lainings during the regular laining time.
