Parshas Emor 5775


Happy Mother's Day Weekend!

Dear Elmora Hills Minyan family,

The week began with the last of three presentations by our scholar-in-residence last Shabbos, Rabbi Shalom Hammer. Throughout the weekend, Rabbi Hammer shared inspiring divrei Torah infused with ahavas Yisrael and ahavas Eretz Yisrael. Click here to purchase Rabbi Hammer's book on Rav Yonasan Eibshitz's Ya'aros Devash and click here to purchase his "The Eybeshitz Haggadah: Experiencing Redemption." Thank you once again to all of our sponsors for making last Shabbos so special in the Hills!

On Wednesday night following maariv, we welcomed nearly 50 teens from Elizabeth, Hillside, Linden, Union and other neighboring communities to our Lag B'Omer bbq, bonfire, kumzits and s'mores. After enjoying fun games, delicious food and great friends, we shared divrei Torah and nigunim that inspired them to learn from Rabbi Akiva by kindling their own flame of Torah not only on Wednesday night, but every day from now on. Special thanks to the organizers and grillmasters, Jacob Savitt, Aaron Strock and Dovid Fertig for their help in making it such a successful and meaningful evening, as well as Steve Schnipper for his logistical support and supervision. You can view pictures on our new website

Mazal Tov!

Mazal tov to Hindy & Eliyahu Hecht on the birth of a grandson to their children, Tova and Daniel Hadar, born earlier this morning. Mazal tov to great-grandmother, Mrs. Anita Kalish, uncle Yehuda, and the rest of the extended family. May the entire family have lots of nachas from him, may they be zoche to raise him to Torah, chuppah, and ma'asim tovim, and may the bris occur in good health at the proper time.

Welcome to our newest members, Mazal & Yaakov Weiss and family.
