On Tuesday night, Aseres Y’mai Tesuvah, OTSAR FAMILY SERVICES, presented a most enlightening evening lecture with two outstanding guest speakers to a spellbound audience. Esteemed Rabbi’s Paysach Krohn and Rabbi Eytan Feiner, of the White Shul, “wowed” the crowd with beautiful words of Divrei Torah and Chizuk. Rabbi Teitelbaum, Morah D’Asrah of the Young Israel, started off the evening by welcoming the audience, and the many new faces.
Rabbi Krohn started off his Drasha giving accolades to the Otsar organization for the 34 years of working hand in hand with families of developmentally disabled children and adults. He went on to comment how happy the children and individuals are, and how they love Yiddishkeit and the holiday rituals and minhagim. Rabbi Krohn continued his speech discussing the recent war in Israel. The 18 days of fear and tragedy, especially with regard to the three innocent teenage boys who were murdered. The effect this war had on Am Yisrael, Jews in the U.S. and all across the globe – Am Echad K’Nefesh Echad.
Rabbi Feiner, dynamic and exuberant in his presentation, began by reading parts of a recent Otsar newsletter. He became very emotional as he quoted Otsar’s Chevra, as they wanted to improve themselves and make positive changes in their own lives for the New Year. Rabbi Feiner went on to connect the Yamim Noraim and Asseres Y’mai Tesuvah to the old adage; “you are what you eat”. In essence, we try to watch the foods we ingest; we must be more stringent with regard to what foods we eat and how we eat them. We must watch what we put into our mouths. In doing so, we will purify our hearts and enhance our tefillah to HaKadosh Baruchu
Otsar Family Services wants to thank the 5 Towns community for welcoming us, and all our sponsors and participants for their tremendous support. May Hashem listen to our prayers during these Yamim Noraim, and bestow us and our families the Bracha of good health and happiness.
