Despite cold temperatures, the Levi Yitzchak Library opened its doors to over 100 visitors this past Shabbos. Yes, on Shabbos!
A few weeks ago, as the seventh yahrzeit of Levi Yitzchak Wolowik, ob’m, was approaching on the calendar, the caring administrators at the LY Library noticed it fell out on Shabbos, a day the library is closed. After much thought, they decided that there would be no better honor to Levi than to open the library on Shabbos for the community. The low degrees didn’t prevent parents and children from joining the special Hakhel Shabbos party planned in Levi’s memory. The younger children enjoyed an interactive story time, while the older ones were intrigued by guest storyteller Rabbi Yitzie Ross. Following the story, each child received a bag of yummy goodies to recite berachos on. The children had a fabulous time. The parents keep asking, “Can you do this every Shabbos afternoon?”
The LY Library and the Wolowik family thank storyteller Rabbi Ross and the visitors who braved the cold weather to participate in the Shabbos event.
