Photos & Report of amazing event with former Refusenik Yosef Mendelevich

 It is not every day that you meet someone who stared down a Death Sentence, spent 11 years in the Gulag and kept up his Jewish pride and positive attitude throughout. Thank you Rav Yosef Mendelevich for an incredibly inspiring evening last night and for all your perseverance on behalf of Soviet Jewry and world Jewry in all the years since then.

Another beautiful dimension of last night, was that besides the speaker, we had multiple Jewish Americans who had been very active on behalf of Soviet Jewry back in the 70's at the same time that his trial was going on, and we also Jewish people who were originally from Russia who shared their memories of this incident and the impact that it had on them.

At the "Demo for Dads" program, we enjoyed wonderful presentations from so many dads about what they do or a hobby they have, and what we can all learn from this in life. It was a very entertaining program as well as very interactive and the kids all had a great time!

Of course before that we had our regular learning and fun Hebrew School program.

Thank you to all the students, dads and grandparents who were able to join us for this and for putting in all the time in preparing the presentations.

How Do We Define Ourselves?

Profession.pngIn our society, when we are introduced to new people, the conversation usually goes like this, “What is your name?” and then followed by “What do you do?”

Usually the response is something similar.

My name is …. And I am an Electrician, a Stock Broker, a Realtor, a Developer or an Attorney….

Great… now we have a name and a definition of what the person is about.

However this may be true to a degree, yet at the same time, is this the end all?

Perhaps we need to ask ourselves, how are we viewing and defining people and perhaps to the same degree, how do we view and define ourselves?

Does our profession define who we truly are, both in the way we view ourselves and in the way others view us? O… Read More »
