1. Itamar was especially blessed this week with the birth of two boys and a girl: Mazal Tov to the Head family on the birth of a granddaughter, to the Zimmerman family on the birth of a grandson and to the Shneerson family on the birth of a son. We wish them all blessings and happiness!
2. With the fast of Tisha B’av on the way let us all do what ever we can in order to rectify the sins that lead to the destruction of our temple. In this weeks Torah parasha we will read about the sin of the spies. As we all know the same day that the spies returned to Joshua with an evil report about the land of Israel was the same day our temples were destroyed. The way to rectify this terrible sin is to do whatever we can in order to rebuild the land of Israel. Itamar is working hard to hold on to our precious homeland please show us that you are with us in this important mission and help support our community.
