Rabbi Kilimnick's High Holiday Message

The Yomim Noraim, the Days of Awe, beginning with the month of Elul ending with Sukkos, provide us with an oasis in time to reflect upon our lives and to examine our behavior and personal conditions. We stand before our Creator in judgment and are hoping His sentence for the new year is one which is favorable and blessed with good health, parnasah and nachas from our respective families. We enjoy the opportunity to wish all our acquaintances a ‘sweet year’ and to all we encounter we extend our hopes for them to be ‘written and sealed in the Book of Life’.


A Summer to Remember

I am not alone when I say that this summer was not really a summer. Many of us are still waiting for summer to begin, but that might not happen due to the predicted polar vortex about to hit our region in mid-September. I hope I heard wrong.

Summer is usually synonymous with relaxing, vacationing, reading in a leisurely fashion, and that didn’t seem to occur. We were thrown into a daze with the tragic murder of our three boys, Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Frankel and Gilad Shaar. We were thrown into war, where our eyes and ears were glued to screen and radio making sure we knew what was happening to our brothers and sisters in Israel. This in a way is a forgetful summer because many may feel like it never happened.
