This week's haftorah is the sixth of a series of seven "Haftarot of Consolation." These seven haftarot commence on the Shabbat following Tisha b'Av and continue until Rosh Hashanah.

In glowing terms the prophet recounts descriptions of what will unfold during the Redemption. Beginning with the resurrection of the dead and the ingathering of the exiles, continuing with the joy and abundance the Jewish people will then experience, as well as the gifts that will be brought to G‑d from all of the nations of the world.
Finally, the Jewish nation will no longer be despised and derided, there will no longer be violence nor mourning, and G‑d will shine His everlasting light on His people.


With great kindness from HaShem and great effort from the community, we secured a wonderful outdoor venue for the full month of September! The commercial space, which we have fondly nick named The Jerusalem Courtyard is located at 1445 South Robertson, between Alcott and Saturn. 

Thank you for filling out the survey, your voice was heard! Thank you for your patience and emunah that we would all be able to come together safely, to Crown the King and usher in a sweet and good new year. Thank you to our donors for their support!

Getting Back My "I"     
You know something friends, basically we are all living in two worlds. On a certain level we are living in a world where I have to do what everybody else is doing. Everybody goes to sleep, I go to sleep; everybody wakes up, hopefully I will wake up. Everybody makes a few rubles, I try to make a few rubles. But then there is something else, the deepest, deepest depths of me - where it's just "I", nobody else in the world. 

I want you to know, the Gemara says that Eretz Yisrael is the center of the world. It doesn't just mean that geographically Eretz Yisrael is the center of the world. Eretz Yisrael gives us back that center. 

Here is a Modzitzer Torah which you can't forget: It says 'Vehaya Ki Savo El Ha'aretz', when you come to the Holy Land, 'Asher Ani Nosain L'cha', which I am giving you. So the old Modzitzer, Reb Shaul Yedidya, says like this. 'Vehaya Ki Savo El Ha'aretz' when you come to the Land, 'Asher Ani Nosayn Lachem', where G-d gives you back your 'ANI', your 'I'. See what it is, in chutz l'aaretz, outside the land, we have everything, but we don't have our 'I'. 

Friends, what's the 'I' of a person? When I am in touch with my 'I', I know what the point of me being in this world really is. I bless you and me we should always be connected to that center.

Good Shabbos!
