Rabbi Mike Stern Lecture this Sunday

Finding Light Amidst Darkness:
Lessons from the Life and Passing of 
Shoshie Stern, A"H.

This Sunday, July 14th  1:30 p.m.
Followed by Mincha.

Babysitting available for a nominal fee. RSVP a must FOR BABYSITTING ONLY at

Shoshana Stern, A'H, daughter of Rabbi Mike & Denise Stern, was tragically taken from us in April 2013 at the tender age of 12. The Sterns, have inspired many hundreds of Jews over the past 20 years through their work with Aish Philadelphia, the Milwaukee Kollel and the Levis JCC in Boca Raton. The Sterns now have created Rabbi Without Walls to reach out to unaffiliated Jews in South FL.

Throughout the entire Shiva, Shaloshim and up until today it has become apparent that "Shoshie's Life" was one of great spiritual accomplishment. Rabbi Mike will inspire and uplift us as he shares the lessons learned from Shoshie and how these insights give us a deeper understanding of the 9 days and Tisha b'Av . For more info see
