1) Unfortunately, Itamar had a terrible tragedy this week. One of our dear students of our Yeshiva high school, Evyatar Mahon that just graduated a few weeks ago was killed in a car accident. Evyatar was a resident of the community Maale Livonah and was buried in Shilo last night. Just a few months ago, Evyatar, was miraculously saved from an attempted kidnapping by Arab terrorists. Monday night Evyatar hitched a ride home and received a terrible head injury when driver that fell asleep behind the wheel and collided with an oncoming vehicle. He and passed away yesterday, Thursday July 12, at around four o’clock. Evyatar, was a very special boy who always had a smile on his face. Evyatar’s family, community, teachers, and classmates are all heartbroken. Our Rabbis teach us that when a terrible tragedy takes place, it is a sign from G-d that we must try and elevate ourselves and repent. Let us all take upon ourselves to do good deeds and improve ourselves.
2) Itamar celebrated two circumcisions this week one on Tuedsay and another one, Today Friday July 13. We wish a mazal Tov to the Silvers and Azulai families. Our streak of three consecutive circumcisions on Shabbat was broken.
3) As the Sabbatical year approaches Itamar’s youth help the community get ready by planting trees, flowers, and participating in other gardening work. This is part of our special summer camp program.
