A word from the Rabbi 

Shabbat Sevices: Shabbat Morning Services @ 10:00 AM followed by a delicious kiddush.

Please continue your prayers, joining with Jews all over the world, as we continue to pray for the safe return of our three boys.

Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devora – יעקב נפתלי בן רחל דבורה
Gil-ad Michael ben Bat Galim – גיל-עד מיכאל בן בת גלים
Eyal ben Iris Teshura – אייל בן איריס תשורה

Special chapters of Tehillim (Psalms) will be said following Shabbat Morning Services for the safe return of our boys and for the safety of our soldiers in the IDF who are risking their lives to help find them.

May G-d bless them with immediate success to bring our boys home.

Our sincerest condolences to Valerie and Bobby Gropper on the loss of Valerie’s father, Mr. Harry Wolf, Tzvi Hersh ben Menachem Shaul obm. May his memory be for a blessing and may his family find comfort among all the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Shiva is at the Gropper home at 26 Scenic Dr, P’ok until Monday morning.

Dear Friends:

Mother and daughter; father and son; brother and sister; husband and wife; friend and friend; teacher and pupil. To the varied array of human relationships, the phenomenon and experience of Chassidism has added one more: the bond between the rebbe and the chassid.

This coming Tuesday marks the 20th anniversary, from when the world heard that the Rebbe had physically passed on. Traditionally, this is a day for reflection, learning, prayer, positive resolutions and acts of loving kindness. Many also have the custom to visit and pray at the Ohel, the Rebbe’s holy resting place.

But what is the nature of the rebbe-and-chassid bond?

There is fierce love in it, and unquestioning loyalty. There is passion, devotion, admiration, appreciation, awe, mentorship, care, concern, sacrifice. Almost every human emotion is there, in heightened form.
But can it be described?


Read about how people from all walks of life speak about their relationship with the Rebbe.

We will Farbreng more about this on Shabbat as well, please join us in Shul.

On this special day, let us join together with Jews throughout the world in learning extra Torah, reciting an additional prayer, and giving some extra charity.  

Let us also try and apply some of the Rebbe’s care and selflessness to our own interactions with family, friends and strangers.  


There can be no more fitting tribute to the Rebbe than millions of good deeds, performed on his day.

May G-d help us, in the merit of our collective acts of goodness, to quickly greet the righteous Moshiach.


Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Yacov & Hindy Borenstein



Mr. Goldberg bought a new fridge for his house.

To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front garden and hung a sign on it saying: “Free to take home. You want it, you take it.”

For three months, the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it.

He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked too good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: ‘Fridge for sale $200.’

The next day someone stole it.
