How much are we willing to risk to study Torah? Would we risk imprisonment or G-d forbid our lives? The question seems outlandish given our freedom today but one worth pondering in light of the upcoming holiday of Chanukah. Thousands of years ago, the Syrian Greeks attempted to extinguish the fire of Torah from our nation. They forbade observance of Shabbat, circumcision, the establishment of the new month and Torah study. The Greeks understood that a Jew without Judaism cannot survive. Yet, throughout history, whether in the times of Rabbi Akiva, the Shoah, or the former Soviet Union, we have demonstrated a unyielding devotion to the primacy of Torah. It is Torah that inspires, educates and fuels our future.

In this spirit, I want to offer thanks and a challenge. First,Yasher Koach to the participants in this years MALT trip and Rabbi Tzvi Bernstein for his leadership. It was an extraordinary few days of learning and living Torah in Israel.

Second, as we approach Chanukah, consider committing to a daily regimen of Torah study. We have a sacred obligation to engage in learning every day. Consider a selection from Ethics of our Fathers, an aliyah a day or one Halacha a day. Here are some resources:


I invite you to join me as I embark on a new three year study cycle of Maimonides Mishneh Torah. We begin on Sunday and commit to one chapter a day. Click here to find the text

If you would like to join me on the three year cycle, please email me and I will send you a calendar and resources.

This effort is part of a popular new initiative in Israel and also started many years ago by the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

We are blessed with the freedom to learn every day. As we celebrate Chanukah, let us celebrate not only through gifts but with a renewed appreciation to the primacy and vitality of Torah in our lives.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom and Happy Chanukah!

Message from Cantor Bokow

Dear Friends

I am now the coordinator of the weekly leining (Torah reading) and what I have been working on is on streamlining the process of the leiners so that we are prepared as a shul with the leining without the last minute pressure of looking for a leiner. I have set up a rotation of "regulars" who have volunteered to assist us. The schedule is set up approximately 6-8 weeks in advance and allows those who lein to prepare the parsha for our benefit. Having said this, I strongly encourage those who wish to participate in the leining from time to time,even if it is just an aliyah or two to please do so. This is a wonderful opportunity to lein your bar-mitzvah parsha or aliyah for the shul. Please do so by contact me as EARLY as possible so that I may put your name on the schedule without having someone else on the schedule prepare needlessly. Looking forward to working with you this.

Warm regards, Cantor B

  • ISRAEL BONDS This Chanukah, give the gift of Israel to your children, grandchildren and relatives! For one night of Chanukah, celebrate Israel and buy an Israel Bond. With bonds starting now at $36, and easily purchased online, this is a perfect gift for the holidays. The more ties we can forge between our children and the State of Israel, the greater likelihood they will understand and appreciate their Jewish heritage, and the stronger Israel will be in the future. Israel Bonds is one of the many vehicles that can be utilized to build linkage between our children and Israel. By gifting an Israel Bond, we send a message to our children that it is as important to loan our monies to Israel as it is to make charitable gifts to our Jewish homeland. At the same time you are teaching your children about making sound investment decisions. Israel has a perfect record of payment of principal and interest on Israel Bonds. The purchase of an Israel Bond is a meaningful expression of commitment to the future strength of the State of Israel and helps to build every aspect of Israel's economy, making it both strong and resilient. For more information, contact Cynthia Blustein, Development Corporation for Israel, at 914-713-9003 or make a purchase online at This is not an offering, which can be made only by prospectus.

  • WOMEN'S PHILANTHROPY OF UNITED JEWISH FEDERATION OF GREATER STAMFORD, NEW CANAAN AND DARIEN THE STAMFORD CHAPTER OF HADASSAH BI-CULTURAL DAY SCHOOL & CARMEL ACADEMY PROUDLY SPONSOR THE 2014 WINTER HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE Benefiting David's Treasure Tree at Stamford Hospital Toy Drop-off Deadline: Tuesday, December 16th Chaired By: Dinah Miller Marlowe. Can you tell me more about David's Treasure Tree? Inside the closet at David's Treasure Tree Chanukah and Christmas are holidays that bring smiles to the faces of children as they open their presents. But for children who are ill in the hospital, these smiles may be few and far between. David's Treasure Tree, in the pediatric unit at Stamford Hospital, helps children recover those smiles and moments of joy. A child admitted to the hospital can select a toy from the treasure tree. Robin and Joseph Kanarek, who brought the concept of the toy closet to Stamford Hospital, dedicated the closet to their son, David, who died of leukemia in 2000 at the age of fifteen. The treasure tree is filled with new toys donated from local organizations, businesses and the community. How Can My Family Help? This year on Chanukah, make one night a Mitzvah Night, a night of giving. Women's Philanthropy is collecting unwrapped new toys and games to fill David's Treasure Tree closet located at the Stamford hospital. Let the kids be a part of this important mitzvah and allow them to choose a new toy to donate, or take them shopping to purchase one. Remind them to think of a toy or a game that can be used alone and for quiet play. Sounds Great, What's Next? It's easy, simply drop off gifts in the drop boxes at Bi-Cultural Day School, Carmel Academy or the United Jewish Federation offices, located upstairs in the JCC Stamford building
  • SOOSH IS PARTNERING WITH THE STAMFORD FIRE FIGHTERS in delivering smiles this Holiday Season!
