Business Ethics Is Back This Week!

Special Programming for the 

3 Weeks!


1. Rabbi Biberfeld's Shiur on the Ten Lost Tribes


2. Yizkereim Documentary - Strike On Heaven

Strike On Heaven is a poignant documentary that exposes the Third Reich's war on Yiddishkeit and part of the 
Yizkereim Foundation's 

Zachor...Lo Tishkach series. Through archival footage, personal interviews with survivors and Holocaust experts the film tells the story of the Nazis' wholesale attempt to spiritually annihilate the Jews. The film ends on an uplifting note with the rebuilding and flourishing of Yiddishkeit in Eretz Yisrael and around the world which will inspire all of us to greater adherence to mitzvot and will help us strengthen emunah - particularly relevant to the Three Weeks - Bein Hametzarim period.


3. Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation Presentations on Tisha BA'v

and other video presentations.




Special Mishnayos Learning Dedicated to Memory 

of the 3 Kedoshim, Hy"d

Through the duration of shiva for our brothers
Hy"d who were brutally murdered in Eretz Yisroel at the hands of our enemies, we will learn mishnayos together in their memory each weeknight at the end of Night Seder. 
In memory of:
Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah, Hy"d
Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim, Hy"d
Eyal ben Iris Teshurah, Hy"d 
(Father's names will be announced when available)
Mishnayos: 9:55 p.m.
Maariv: 10:00 p.m.
May Hashem avenge their deaths and bring solace and comfort to their immediate families and all of Klal Yisroel.
