Shabbat in Beachwood Kehilla in Cleveland, OH (see poster)
Sunday night, June 23 7:15 PM – Young Israel of Holliswood, NY

 

Sicha of Rosh HaYeshiva HaRav Yaakov Medan addressing the situation in the South:

We are in the midst of a heavy battle—and this demands much patience and a deep breath. Everyone has suggestions regarding how the government should function. Now is not the time for suggestions; there is a government, and now is the time to stand behind it, supporting and strengthening it. I remember when there were missiles from the north, and the [enemies] knew that they could not defeat the IDF, but they thought that the home-front would be easy to defeat. It is very important that those who seek to harm us are proven wrong about our home-front. We need to strengthen everybody, and send a clear message to those that seek to harm us that the people of The State of Israel are strong and mighty. This demands that we rise and assist the cities of the South. The Yeshiva has already done so by volunteering to host families from the South. Our responsibility is to “hug” those at the front lines and strengthen them. Here, in The Gush we learn Torah and it is important to continue to learn Torah, but we need to hear the cry of our brothers in the South as well. We continue to pray that Hashem will redeem the Nation of Israel.

Erev Sukkot is always colored for us by the memory of our talmid, Yoni Jesner HY"D, the incredible young man he was, and the thoughts about what he might have become, and how he surely would have contributed to the world. W remember him with tears and love.
 
Yehi Zichro Baruch!
 
The Yoni Jesner Foundation established in his memory, is focusing this year on one of Yoni's "sayings", a statement which is deeply true and genuinely challenging:
 
"Every human being is beautiful. Each has his own needs, wants, desires, passions which serve to complement and influence our experiences. This realisation not only heightens our empathy towards each other but sets each person a mission."

An Incredible Opportunity to Understand
the Tefillot of Yom Kippur 

For many, the most difficult part of the יום כיפור davening is the עבודה, also known as אמיץ כח - a long, detailed and intricate description of the process that the כהן גדול would go through on יום כיפור.

After many years of giving his shiur on ליל יום כיפור about אמיץ כח, Rav Pini has published a book which takes the reader through אמיץ כח, bringing the sources (both תורה שבכתב and תורה שבעל פה) for, and giving context to, each and every stage, from beginning to end.

Visits to Har Etzion by the most elite instructional institution in the IDF - The IDF Command and Staff College ("Pum") - seem to have become a tradition. Brigadier General Commander Noam Tivon explains why: "I consider Rav Medan a leader, an ideological leader, but also a leader who seeks ways to build bridges, and therefore it is so important to hear him."

Baruch Dayan HaEmet.

There is a chilling symbolism in the death of our alumnus Rabbi Elyashiv Knohl on the 5th of Iyar. Rav Knohl was born a few months after the fall of Gush Etzion, while his father, Dov Knohl, one of the founders of Gush Etzion, was captured by the Jordanians. Rav Knohl merited to take part in the renewal of Gush Etzion post 1967, and among other things, served as the rabbi of Kfar Etzion.

But beyond the national symbolism, Rabbi Elyashiv was both a scholar and a wonderful man, pleasant and welcoming, loving peace and pursuing peace, loved by people and certainly beloved by Hakadosh Baruch Hu. His book "Man and Woman" was a must-have for each couple before their wedding, explaining in detail the halachic foundations between man and wife, in such a way as to suit his Torah greatness and pleasant personality.

Harav Aharon Lichtenstein ztlKEDUSHAT AVIV is the latest in a series of Torah Literature by Harav Aharon Lichtenstein zt"l, this one on the subject of holiness. Harav worked on this sefer in his lifetime, and it was completed posthumously by incorporating manuscripts and recordings of his lessons.  

What is the nature of holiness? What is theKedushat Aviv difference between the sanctity of Shabbat and the sanctity of Yom Tov? What is the connection between the sanctity of the Land of Israel and Jerusalem? The Temple and the Holy of Holies? How is holiness created and how is it uprooted?

rya when god is near icon

"Some people’s Torah is to be found in their books, for others, in their lives,” my late, revered teacher, Rav Yehuda Amital once shared with me.
Here as always, his brief, aphoristic, seemingly simple words carried a world of meaning. His Torah was centered on embracing life and taking responsibility before God—and for one another—in our everyday lives.

Yehudah Mirsky's review...

RAL ByHisLight Character and Values in the Service of God new313x200

 BACK IN PRINT!!

In this volume, Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein explores the development of the religious personality. He advocates a life centered on the service of God, but recognizes multiple paths to this goal. Acknowledging that both the Jewish value system and human experience are multifaceted, he examines the relevant issues from an unusually wide perspective.

Rabbi Lichtenstein’s essays reflect not only a staunch commitment to Halakha and a firm grounding in rigorous Torah study, but also a deep spirituality, a profound moral sensitivity, and a keen awareness of both the challenges and opportunities of modernity. While being enlightened by Rabbi Lichtenstein’s penetrating analyses and wide-ranging learning, the reader will also be inspired by the beauty of his vision of the religious life.

NEW SEFER BY MOREINU
HARAV AHARON LICHTENSTEIN zt"l


Harav Aharon Lichtenstein ztlKEDUSHAT AVIV is the latest in a series of Torah Literature by Harav Aharon Lichtenstein zt"l, this one on the subject of holiness. Harav worked on this sefer in his lifetime, and it was completed posthumously by incorporating manuscripts and recordings of his lessons.  

What is the nature of holiness? What is theKedushat Aviv difference between the sanctity of Shabbat and the sanctity of Yom Tov? What is the connection between the sanctity of the Land of Israel and Jerusalem? The Temple and the Holy of Holies? How is holiness created and how is it uprooted?
