Rav Berkovitz speaking l'ilui nishmas Chaim a"h

Dear Friends,

You are cordially invited to join next Wednesday evening June 6th @ 8:15 PM at the home of Jeff and Marla Schachter (207 Aycrigg Ave Passaic NJ) for an event on behalf of the Jerusalem Kollel. Rav Yitzchak Berkovits will speak from Yerushalayim via Skype @ 9:15 PM (EDT) on the topic of "Educating Our Children About Emunah and Having a Relationship With Hashem". The shiur will be given in memory of Chaim Yissachar a"h ben Yechiel Zeidel Dov.

This is a great opportunity for alumni, friends and supporters of Rav Berkovits and the Jerusalem Kollel, as well as others in Passaic and neighboring towns who are not yet familiar with Rav Berkovits or the Jerusalem Kollel, to hear Rav Berkovits address us live on this ever important subject, one that is close to all of our hearts. Please join us and encourage your neighbors and friends to join us for this event.

Thank you.

Learning for sheloshim

Shalom friends,

Believe it or not, the sheloshim for Chaim Yissachar A"H will take place in less than one week. We wanted to just thank all of those individuals who took time to learn mishnayos for Chaim and gently remind you to please finish your mishnayos by June 5th / 15th of Sivan. A special sheloshim shiur is being planned in Teaneck and the details of that shiur will follow.

May we only share smachot,

The Feigenbaum family

Shiur Thursday night

Shalom friends

Tomorrow night there will be a shiur given by R' Moshe Tzvi Weinberg, Chaim's brother in law. This is the final shiur of the year in his weekly parsha series. It will be Thursday night, 9:15 pm at Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck in the Old Main Shul

The topic this week will be:
"Living with Hashem: What Chaim Yissachar A"H Taught Us All"

While it has not yet been 30 days since his petirah, Shavuos brings about an end to the halachic aspects of his shloshim and therefore Moshe Tzvi wanted to offer some words in preparation for that occasion.

So many people were touched by Chaim's supreme spiritual strength in his final months and it is felt that we have an obligation to try to internalize his message while it is still so fresh in our minds.

There will be a call in number for those who cannot attend ( note that it is different than the Tuesday shiur number) - 218-862-6420 ext 589-9572

Hope to see everyone there for this very special shiur.
Wishing everyone a good shabbos and gut yom tov

Baruch Dayan Emes...

Dear Friends,
It is with infinite sadness and emotion beyond words that we regret to inform you that our dear friend Chaim Yissachar passed away on Shabbos morning.

The funeral will take place Sunday at 2pm at the Gutterman Funeral Home - 402 Park Street, Hackensack, NJ 07601. The kevurah will IY"H take place in Eretz Yisrael and family will return to Teaneck on Tuesday morning where they will sit shiva (details to follow).
May we find strength and comfort in all that he has so beautifully taught us...
