Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

And finally to my fellow shadchanim…

Responding to every e-mail, text or phone call coming our way can be exhausting and bothersome. However, doing so in a timely manner allows the person at the other end to keep his or her dignity. Even simple words such as, “So nice to hear from you… have you in mind and hope that your bashert arrives very soon!” go a long way in alleviating a single’s anxiety and makes him or her feel cared about. Any shadchan who feels the loss of a caring attitude might be overwhelmed or suffering from burnout and should seriously consider taking a temporary “shadchan break.”

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.
