Yachad Shabbaton at Ezras Israel

Ezras Israel loves Yachad!

This past week, Ezras Israel was the site of an exciting and inclusive Shabbaton with Yachad seniors and alumni. From Friday's special oneg, to a delicious kiddush and lunch Shabbat afternoon, to the signature Yachad-style Havdallah, it was a fun and friend-filled weekend with Ezras Israel and Yachad!

Midrash with Rabbi Asher Dordek

This is an excellent time to join Rabbi Asher Dordek Wednesdays at 8pm in the Library, as the Midrash class has recently started a new book:

Midrash Otiyot D'Rabbi Akiva

All men and women in the community are invited to explore the Aleph Bet in this well-known sefer in pursuit of greater understanding of the Creator of the universe.
