A Kindness a Day

Shabbat – October 8, 2011

Pray for a good year for your country, Israel, your family and friends.

“See how high the Holy One, blessed be He, is above His world.  Yet a person can enter a synagogue, stand behind a pillar and pray in a whisper and the Holy One, blessed be He, hears his prayer.
(Yerushalmi, Berachot 9:1)

This program is open to all students from kindergarten through 4th grade.  Parents wishing to drop off their children may do so, but must leave a contact number where they can be reached.
