Rabbi's Message

It is extremely difficult to go from the highs of Yom Kippur to just a "Regular" Shabbos.  I think that the atmosphere at Etz Chaim this year was something special and I am proud to have been a part of what was an incredible Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

The real test of Yamim Noraim is how we then deal with the more common and mundane Mitzvot.  If that is the case, then this is no ordinary Shabbat. This is an opportunity for us to prove to ourselves that we meant what we said during the last several days.

Shabbat Shalom and a Gutten Kvittel.
