Mazal Tov to Rabbi Uzi Damari for completing for the 6th time the holy works of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochay – the Zohar! Rabbi Damari who is one of the founding families of Itamar has a beautiful custom of making a special feast in honor of his Torah study of the Zohar after each completion. There is nothing greater than honoring our holy Torah and those that study with true love and devotion. Rabbi Damari also loves studying the Tanach and reads 60 chapters a day! As a matter of fact – he participated in the Israel national Bible contest.
As the rainy season heads our way we pray to Hashem that all our reservoirs are filled to capacity by the end of the winter season.

A special request to all our dear friends to pray for the speedy recovery of Levi(Lester) Ben Chasah (Clara). Levi is the president and founder of the Friends of Itamar and has been volunteering for years with tremendous devotion and endless energy to help the community of Itamar. May Hashem grant him a speedy recovery and grant him many more years of health and happiness. May he have continued Nachat from his family. This week’s torah lesson is dedicated to him for a speedy recovery!
