Mazal Tov to Elliott & Shirley Franklin on the upcoming marriage of their daughter, Yaakova, to Andrew Chaimowitz son of Chaim & Debbie Chaimowitz, of Monsey, NY.


We are saddened by the news of the sudden and tragic passing of Rabbi Yosef Rabinowitz of New York, Rabbi Shulman’s brother-in-law.  Rabbi Shulman will be going to NY for the Franklin wedding on Sunday, and the family shiva on Monday, and will return Tuesday morning.  Our sincerest condolences to him, and the entire family.

[NOTE: Rabbi’s Monday morning and evening classes this week will obviously not take place due to the circumstances.  They will resume, please G-d, Monday May 6th.]
