Checks in Halacha

  • You paid someone with a check and he lost it. Do you need to issue a new one?
  • Can you buy a lulav and esrog with a check?
  • A man wrote a check to charity and died before th e check was cashed. Must his children honor the check?

Annual Yizkereim Video to be Shown July 2nd
Each year, during the Thre Weeks, the Kollel shows a documentary from the Yizkereim Foundation. This year we will show "Monsieur" which presents the dramatic and inspirational story of Rav Yonah Tiefenbrunner, z"l, and the orphanage he established in Belgium during the Holocaust. The stories of courage,mesiras nefesh and Kiddush HaShem told by child survivors saved by R' Tiefenbrunner, "MONSIEUR", will inspire all of us to greater adherence to מצות and will help us strengthen our emunah- particularly relevant to the Three Weeks - Bein Hametzarim period. The much acclaimed documentary will be shown in community shuls around the globe.

For men and women. 
We are the witnesses to the stories and memories of the last survivors of the Holocaust. It is critical that we hear their voices now, vividly connect with their individual experiences, and accept and transmit their legacy to future generations.
