A hearty Mazal Tov to Garry Hyman on his Bar-Mitzvah anniversary!
I look forward to hearing his reading of the Haftorah on Shabbat, and celebrating over a Lachaim!
Women saying Kaddish
Kaddish is a short declaration and prayer that is powerful and comforting. Saying Kaddish is far more than just reciting words, it is a deeply moving experience and this experience belongs not only to men, but to women as well. I am keen to involve all of the women in our community who have lost loved ones in the Kaddish experience. Over the past year, the chief Rabbi of the Commonwealth, Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, compiled an informative booklet about the meaning of Kaddish, with an emphasis on informing women about their involvement. Please read it and share it with your friends.
Dina and I wish everyone a restful and peaceful Shabbat.
Rabbi Chaim and Dina Koncelpolski
