Special Programming

Wednesday, July 30 -  3rd of Av, 5774

Ten Lost Tribes,

~Shmira Project~


As we join Klal Yisroel in our concern for our brethren in Eretz Yisroel, after each tefilla at the Kollel, we will recite the Perakim of Tehillim 83, 130 & 142 apropos for the situation. 

Please consider joining this initiative.

Endorsed by Rav Aaron Feldman shli"ta of Ner Yisroel.


Hebrew word "shmira" (pronounced shmeerah) means "guarding" or "protecting". In modern Hebrew, shmira also means guard duty. The Shmira Project is an ongoing, grassroots program that pairs IDF combat soldiers with Jews around the world who do acts of kindness, prayer or Torah learning to increase the soldier's spiritual merit and protection. 

This project originated with Rav Simcha HaCohen Kook, Chief Rabbi Rechovot & The Hurva Synagogue with the Bostoner Rebbe, zt"l in 2009 during the Gaza Operation Cast Lead. It has the support of people across the world and across all denominations.  It's being organized in its present format by the mother of a former IDF paratrooper. Rabbinical Endorsements - הסכמות

There are a number of items in the downstairs coat area that are tagged and will be disposed of.

Thank you!
