A Genetically engineered Chazan?

Dear Friend,  Mazel Tov to Steven & Dani Rosenberg on Zach’s virtual Barmy yesterday! Zach is a leading member of our youth choir & he truly sang like an angel. It’s no surprise, considering how steeped his genes are in music. I hear his dad has a magnificent voice, his great grandfather Max Badash is a legend in our […]

Dear Friend, It’s almost surreal, but I’m thrilled to share that we’re once again celebrating a Bar Mitzvah in Shul on Shabbas!  Mazel Tov to Troy Haskel on celebrating his Barmy this Shabbas. Troy has approached this milestone with an earnestness that is simply endearing and I know his family are shepping such nachas!  Mazel Tov to […]

Hello? This is Israel calling!

Wow! The messages are just pouring in. Last night’s Unity Yizkor Service really touched people and allowed us to connect to the souls of our loved ones. To the almost 500 people who participated (from as far as Australia, the UK & Israel), thank you for making the event so special.  Missed it? No problem! […]

Revenge & post Holocaust

Dear Friend, Grant Gochin went on a search for his family’s murderers in Lithuania. His search for truth led him to Sylvia, granddaughter of the very butcher he was seeking. Their tale of a fearless fight for truth will be shared on Wednesday night, Tish’a b’Av.  “Destruction of Life, rejection of truth” is a post Holocaust modern tale of the fight […]
