Learn to Read Hebrew
Starting September 29 through December 15, 2014
Weekly class on Mondays 7:30 – 9:00 PM
Teacher: Ms. Joy Fallek
Do you wish you could learn to read Hebrew so that you can read from the Prayer Book along with the congregation, and perhaps progress to learning the Hebrew language? This is a class for people with no background in reading Hebrew. We will use two books that offer a programmed learning approach that has been very effective in helping adults gain Jewish literacy.
Please let us know in advance if you plan to attend by emailing Joy Fallek. For more information you can also contact the Kane Street Synagogue office at KSS Office.
Muhammad Abu Kheidr, of blessed memory, revenge and a perspective of Torah
Chaverei, dear friends,
I begin by expressing sincere condolences to the family of Muhammad Abu Kheidr, the sixteen year old Palestinian boy from Jerusalem who was tortured and killed, apparently by Jewish extremists in retaliation for the horrendous murders of Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrach and Gilad Sha’ar, Zichronam LIvracha. May Muhammad’s father and mother, and all his family, find consolation even in this devastating time.
The murders of Muhammad, Naftali, Eyal and Gilad are equally heinous. As Rachel Fraenkel, Naftali’s mother, said “Murder is murder, no matter the nationality”. I pray that the perpetrators of all these crimes will be brought to justice. “One Torah and one justice shall you have for you and for the stranger that resides in your midst” (Numbers 15:16).
