Great news !!! The Ethiopian Bar Mitzvah is going ahead Monday 23rd April (Rosh Chodesh Iyar), as thank G-d many kind people have raised the funds necessary to make this special day for our young men.
Bar Mitzvah Ceremony Becoming Bar Mitzvah is often the most significant event in a teenage boy’s life. It marks the important boundary between childhood and adulthood and is generally a time for great joy as well as reflection. Sadly, many of the students at the Bet Shemesh Educational Center simply cannot afford to celebrate this special occasion because of their families’ financial hardship.This year, the Bet Shemesh Educational Center seeks to fulfill the dreams of its Bar Mitzvah boys. After completing an educational course about the significance of becoming Bar Mitzvah, each of the boys will be given a set of teffilin, and a tallit, as well as a small gift in honor of the momentous event. They will also have the opportunity to celebrate their special day with their families and friends,when they are all treated to a luxuriously catered meal and taken on an exciting field trip.

This coming Passover, (don’t you passover), the Jaffa Institute is hosting a Pesach Seder for 500 impoverished Ethiopian immigrants in the Bet Shemesh Educational Center’s beautiful new dining hall. For many of these families, this will be the first Seder of their lives; an experience never to be forgotten.

We have been commanded not just to observe the Shabbos, but also to do so “for the generations – an everlasting covenant” . Whilst of course it is within our abilities to keep our own Shabbos’s, how can we be commanded to keep Shabbos as a sign for the generations? Surely this is up to them! Indeed they are also commanded to keep Shabbos themselves in any case.
Cipora, 10, and Shraga Feiveleh, 16, were the only survivors in their family.
They were born in Bukovina Romania. In 1941 the family was dragged to Mogilev, Ukraine. When Cipora was 8 her father was murdered in cold blood for praying and her mother could not be consoled, and died two weeks later of a broken heart. The children survived on whatever they found in the garbage bins.
After the war, they ended up in an absorption centre in Haifa, Israel. Cipora’s brother was old enough to choose where he wanted to go, but she was too young. In the distance she saw her brother get in a bus. An older man approached her with a doll and a watch and told her to follow him
“Where are you taking me?” she asked him.
To a place where there are lots of children like you. You will have lots of friends” he assured her.
Sensing there was something that the man – with an uncovered head – was not telling her, she asked him, “Do they do this?” as she closed her eyes bent her head downwards and waved her hands in circles three times towards her.
He knew what she meant: for her mother used to do the same thing in front of the candles on Friday nights ushering in the Shabbos queen.
“No – this is a new place,” he answered her, “Don’t think about the past.”
“Take these back,” she said returning his gifts, “I don’t want to go with you.”
“Keep them, even if you don’t come with me,” the man offered.
“I don’t want them,” Cipora persisted. “If I keep them, one day you might come back and say that you gave something to me. I don’t want that.”
The man took back the ‘gifts’ and as tears welled up in his eyes he turned to the officials at the desk and instructed them, “send her to Mosad Aliyahu” (which was a religious kibbutz).
She was put on a bus – and reunited with her brother!
Today Cipora Adler is a member of the Queens Burial Society where she performs ultimate acts of kindness.
How can we keep Shabbos as an everlasting covenant for the generations? Perhaps the answer is that due to its importance and influence on our lives, by properly sanctifying that Shabbos, by definition we are sowing the seeds for the future. Sometimes we might not see the fruits of our efforts, but so long as we properly keep the Shabbos, we can be sure that one day the seeds of our efforts will sprout. This is the everlasting covenant of Shabbos.
Have an everlasting Shabbos,

The Importance of the Souls of Parshas Zachor Every Jew corresponds to a letter in the Torah according to his essence. What kind of unfortunate soul corresponds to the letters – ‘All the stragglers that trailed behind you’ – that we read on Parshas Zachor? The poor souls that correspond to the word Amalek are those that are trapped by their evil inclination.
The Jews rooted in the words, ‘he [Amalek] found you on the way’ have different failings according to the different interpretations of the word ‘Karcha’.
‘Karcha’ can be interpreted as cold; there are Jews who are cold and indifferent to Judaism. ‘Karcha’ is similar to the word ‘Mikreh’, coincidence. There are Jews who are weak in their belief in divine providence; they see interrelated events as mere coincidences in a haphazard world. ‘Karcha’ can also indicate impurity, and corresponds to people who are impure.
There are also lazy, tired people, who cannot get their act together in the service of Hashem. They are rooted in the words, ‘tired and exhausted’.
These wretched souls are the ones which comprise the chapter of ‘Parshas Zachor’ – the chapter which exhorts us never to forget what Amalek did to us – which we read on the Shabbos before Purim.
However, it is the most important chapter in the Torah – it is the only one which we are biblically obligated to read from the torah scroll! All the other readings of the Torah are only rabbinically mandated.
Hashem calls out to the least worthy of his children and exhorts: Remember what Amalek did to you! Remember that you are my child and nothing can change that – including your actions. Grab onto Purim, onto the great powerful light of the Megilah and ignite your own soul from the new light which I dispense on Purim.
