With today’s challenges, how do we infuse kedushah into our lives? On Wednesday, October 31, women of the Five Towns and Far Rockaway environs will enjoy the words of Rabbi Zecharia Wallerstein, renowned speaker and founder of the Ohr Naava organization. Mrs. Chavi (Samet) Bauman, a young mother and makeup artist will speak passionately about the incredible journey of change she had following an unusual and life-altering dream. Rebbetzin Aviva Feiner of the White Shul will give closing remarks.

The men of our community are invited the next night, Thursday, November 1. Rabbi Moshe Tuvia Lieff, dynamic speaker and rav of Agudas Yisroel Bais Binyomin, will inspire with his words of Torah and encouragement. The men will also enjoy the chizuk and divrei hisorirus given by Rabbi Wallerstein.

Both events are intended to uplift the community in areas of infusing holiness in our lives. These events will take place at 8:00 p.m. at Congregation Beth Sholom, 390 Broadway in Lawrence.

Rabbi Dovid Weinberger, rav of Congregation Shaaray Tefila, is a supporter of the initiative and will be introducing the men’s event with opening remarks. “I’m overjoyed our community is taking a leadership role in addressing the topic of kedushas Yisrael, a serious universal problem in our communities at large. I have no doubt that those that will participate in the kinnusim will go forward with an elevated sense of self, family, and of Klal Yisrael.”

Rabbi Bender, rosh hayeshiva of Yeshiva Darchei Torah agrees, “The Chofetz Chaim used to say that kedushah in our homes will bring the Shechinah into our homes.”

In the winter weather, plants, trees, and grass lie fallow. Let’s not chas v’shalom do the same to our neshamos. Come to these events to add growth and positive change into the lives of our families and friends. v
