From The Rabbi's

Desk

As I sit here on what I expect to be the first of many chilly evenings, my heart is filled with warmth. I am reflecting on the incredibly moving holiday season we’ve just spent together. And thank you all for your kind words. For in the wake of all that is happening in this world today, we have come together as a family this holiday, to mourn, to laugh, to cry, to share and to pray. We prayed for our loved ones of Rego Park Jewish Center, and all of America’s Armed Forces personnel who are protecting us and our freedom. And we pray for their safe return as well.

Out of pain comes strength. Out of salvation comes a deep sense of gratitude that I want to address.

What must we do each and every day to give thanks to Hashem that we and our families have remained intact? As we wake up every morning, the first prayer we recite is the “Modeh Ani Lifanecha.” Thank you Hashem for returning a cleansed soul to me, a soul that is now enabled to do good deeds.

Daily Minyan Urgent Request

The morning and afternoon minyans are fragile and exist without a strong safety net of men to make a minyan if some of our regulars do not come.

If you are observing the yahrzeit of a loved one and it falls on a day when we do not have a minyan you would be upset and rightly so. We need you not only when you are observing yahrzeit, but a few days each month to insure that someone else will be able to say kaddish. A few days each month is not too much to ask.

By doing a mitzvah, you will be rewarded with a bigger mitzvah. Please contact the Rabbi or the Center office with your name and phone number; & when and how often & what time (morning/afternoon?) you can commit.
