Congratulations to all the winners of the JewishPress.com raffle at The Event
Last month, the Monsey chapter of Satmar Bikur Cholim ran its annual summer fundraising event in an evening reception hosted by Debbie Rausman at their home on Herschel Terrace.
Guests enjoyed an inspiring program and were treated to a buffet of delicacies in an outdoor setting where the ambiance was reflective of the big-heartedness of the hosts.
The guest of honor at this summer’s event was Mirel Kiselnik of Auction Mart; the Kesser Shem Tov award was granted to Sara Halperin l’ilui nishmas her mother, and Carol Feldheim served as a MC.
Leah Rubashkin, the featured guest speaker, tugged at the hearts of her listeners as she spoke of her family’s untoward predicament and of her consequential need to adjust to being at the receiving end when all of her life she was accustomed to being a giver.
In her calm and hopeful demeanor, Rubashkin communicated her message of emunah and bitachon and her own faith in Hakadosh Baruch Hu. In fact, on the day of the party she received word that her husband was being transferred close to Monsey.
Interestingly, supporting Satmar Bikur Cholim has helped many people in various aspects of their lives (this is a brachah from the Alter Satmar Rebbe, z”l). For instance, one couple, Nuttie and Debbie Rausman, celebrated the engagement of their daughter just a week after opening their home and their hearts to the cause of Bikur Cholim.
Tax-deductible contributions can be sent to Satmar Bikur Cholim, Monsey Chapter, 11 Herschel Terrace, Monsey, NY 10952. Every dollar counts and every cent is allocated to easing the burdens and plights of those in need of assistance.

In addition to his great erudition, Rabi Akiva was known for his optimism.
What can we do to help him stop feeling so sad all the time?
Children with dyslexia or dysgraphia frequently have problems in social relationships.

The contest will include student-created sculpture, computer graphic design, collage, videography, PowerPoint and painting.
David, an 8-year-old boy on the autism spectrum, recently attended a Friendship Circle event. As he entered he told his Dad, “I love coming to the FC programs ‘cause everyone loves each other.”
Goldsmith himself went on his own “voyage of discovery” to the places where his grandfather and uncle landed and were sent.

Almost immediately the audience began singing and clapping and continued almost without stop throughout the rest of the concert.
As of late, vintage has definitely been in vogue in the Orthodox community.
Known by all as a happy-go-lucky fellow, Yossel’s lackluster parnassah never got the better of him. His dejected-looking wife, however, hardly shared his simchas ha’chayim and Yossel would often attempt to cheer her with words of chizuk.
The girl who had remarkably survived the accident had previously not led a religious lifestyle – which unsurprisingly changed after this event.

The month of Shevat, according to the Sefer Yetzirah, is associated with the letter tzaddik. A Tzaddik is, literally, a righteous person, one who eats to live, to have the energy to serve the Ribono shel Olam – versus the gluttonous, insatiable kind that live to eat, to satisfy their corporeal cravings.
