This Friday night we will enjoy the Temple Israel of DeLand Scholarship for High School Seniors winning essay written and read by Remy Vignati. The Oneg and Kiddush are proudly sponsored by his wonderful family: Becky, Frank, and Calila. Remy's insights in Torah are so very deep and personal, and they speak to all of us.
Saturday morning, we will continue our soul-filled services and discussion. It is Parshat Devarim and we start a new Book of Torah. Due to popular demand, we will revisit some thoughts on Mishnah, Gemara, Mussar, Halacha, Siddur, and Lomdus.
Mark your Calendar: This past Monday started the 9 days before Tisha B'Av. On Monday, August 4th @ 7 p.m., Rabbi Amy Mayer will chant the Megliah Eichah at Temple Israel of DeLand. Her rendition is classic and touching. Thank you, Rabbi Amy! Also, the discussion will be about the Beit Hamikdash and what it means to us today.
