Elaine Machtiger ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ CHINUCH/ADULT EDUCATION Labor Day Class – Monday Sept. 2nd 930AM, 296 Dunhams Corner Road R’ Illowy in Defense of Jewish Marriage R’ Illowy, then of Baltimore, attacks an unnamed ‘rabbi’ who has insulted Talmud saying the Amora’im did not understand Hebrew, denied the uniqueness of the Jewish people, and permitted the consumption of non-kosher food. However, R’ Illowy’s extreme fury is that this ‘rabbi’ has performed marriages not sanctioned by the Torah and has even allowed a Mamzer to marry a Jewess. This class will paint the picture R’ Illowy sees of the American rabbinate circa 1860. In addition, we will try to understand the definition and rationale of Mamzerut.

During the Shabbaton, community boys become “buddies” to the Chai Lifeline kids. It will include an inspirational community-wide Seudah Shlishit at Ohr Torah. This Shabbaton has been recognized twice internationally as one of the best Shabbatons of the year. It provides the opportunity for kids in a very difficult situation to forget their troubles for a weekend and enjoy themselves with old friends and new “buddies.” It also provides their families with much-needed respite. In past years, the Shabbaton was subsidized by a small number of individuals. Unfortunately, they no longer have access to those funds, and must reach out to the community at large. We need to raise another $7,000 to cover the Shabbaton. Please sponsor or contribute today (all contributions will be displayed on the recognition card): $1,000 Sponsor Shabbat lunch $ 500 Sponsor Seudah Shlishit $ 360 Sponsor a child for the weekend $ 180 Contributor Checks should be made out to “Chai Lifeline” and mailed to David Waizer, 53 North 7thAvenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904. Teens from Highland Park/Edison who would like to volunteer should contact Barbara Edery at barbaraedery@gmail.com This event qualifies for Chesed hours and letters can be provided upon request. __________________________________________________ The OU JOB Board link is on the Shul’s website; www.yieb.org _______________________________________ https://www.facebook.com/Yo ungIsraelofEastBrunswick __________________________
