 HILLCREST JEWISH CENTER

 

Join our friends at Hillcrest JC as we learn the code language that is used to decipher the major text of Jewish Mysticism, the Zohar. The symbolic language and paradigms in the Zohar can help us to connect to the Holy in new and often re-invigorating ways, All levels of Hebrew comprehension (including none) are welcome. No prior knowledge of Jewish Mysticism needed.

The program is free of charge and open to the community. Please RSVP at 718-380-4145 or shane@hillcrest.org

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Torah Mantle and Bimah Cover RededicationT

There has been an excellent response to our campaign to buy new ornamental covers for our Torahs and various bimah tables in both the main sanctuary and the Wasserman Chapel, but there are still choice items available. Please call the office if you want to take advantage of this once in a generation event to make your impact on those items that are such a part of our synagogue services.

We are offering an opportunity to help ICCJ buy new covers and to personally dedicate them. Your donation will entitle you to an appropriate inscription embroidered on the cover to honor or memorialize a person or event of your choice.

Please respond quicly so that we can have these items made and ready for our tenth anniversary celebration in September.

Our ICCJ community joins the entire Jewish people in mourning the senseless murder of the three Israeli teenagers kidnapped earlier this month: Naftali Fraenkel (z”l), Gilad Sha’ar (z”l), and Eyal Yifrach (z”l). There are no words to describe this devastating loss of three young lives. Acheinu kol beit Yisra’el – the entire House of Israel mourns the loss of its children. May God offer comfort and consolation to the families and to the entire Jewish people among all the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
