Lunch and Learn

The Retiree Lunch & Learn Presents: The Thomashefskys, Part Two
Music and Memories of a Life in the Yiddish Theater

"My grandparents became mega-stars," Michael Tilson Thomas remembers, "and found themselves smack in the public eye. Legions of crazed fans were obsessed with every detail of their work and their lives. It was a far cry from the simple Jewish family life in the Ukrainian villages of their origin." In THE THOMASHEFSKYS, Tilson Thomas explores the lives of his grandparents, Boris and Bessie Thomashefsky, through a musical performance that features five performers and the New World Symphony orchestra.

Enhancing Our Tefillah Experience at Ohr Torah
Be A Part of It!
In memory of Joel Adler, a'h

Congregation Ohr Torah has embarked on an all-important initiative, 'Enhancing Our Tefillah Experience', in memory of our esteemed and beloved gabbai, member, and friend, Joel Adler, a'h.
Please click here to download the letter that introduces this initiative, including the intent, a call to action, and the benefits of your active participation. Our goal is 100% participation that creates a strong bond of achdus (unity) in our shul. Act now and commit to being counted among those who actively participate in this all-important initiative that will bring us closer to Hakadosh Baruch Hu and enhance the power of our tefillos.
Please click here to download the Bli Neder Commitment to 'Enhancing Our Tefillah Experience'. Either sign the paper form and return it to the shul or conveniently enter your name below, which acknowledges your Bli Neder Commitment that is enumerated in this form.
If you wish to become further involved in supporting this initiative, or have additional ideas, please speak with Shelley Schoenfeld or email:
Parshas Ki Savo describes that Hashem heard the voices/supplications of the Jewish people. May Hashem hear each of our voices as they ascend from the depths of our hearts to the heights of the shamayim (heavens), and may our efforts make our tefillos more effective and meaningful as well as bring nachas to every one of us and great simcha to our lives as we each do our part to grow closer to Hashem.

I, Full Name: have read and agree to the Bli Neder Commitment to 'Enhancing Our Tefillah Experience'.
