In tribute to Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein

This week the world lost a Torah giant, Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein. He was my father's Rebbe and mine as well. He shaped my father's outlook on the synthesis of Torah, the world and our role in it. I will dedicate my remarks on Shabbat in his memory. The insights below from my father capture in a small way Rabbi Aharon's spiritual greatness.

  • Love of Torah: When Tisha B'Av occurs on Sunday, Havdalah is recited at the conclusion of Tisha B'Av. One time (or more than one time), Tisha B'Av was over and the family and guests were waiting for Havdalah to break their fast, but Rav Aharon was nowhere to be found. When he was found learning Torah in his study, he was asked "aren't you hungry" to which he replied: there are two basic human needs that are prohibited on Tisha B'Av, eating and learning Torah. Now that Tisha B'Av is over, which of those needs should be satisfied first?
  • Humility: 1) When Rav Aharon traveled to New York on behalf of the yeshiva, he never took a cab, but instead took public transportation. He didn't want to waste the yeshiva's money. 2) One time a student lost a screw from his glasses in the beis medrash. The student got on the floor and started to look for the screw. The next thing he knew, Rav Aharon was right there on the floor next to him helping him look for the screw.
  • Importance of Family: 1) Towards the end of the video tribute in honor of Rav Aharon's 80th birthday, his family discusses how much time he dedicated towards them and how he was able to balance his hasmadah, his duties at yeshiva and family time perfectly. 2) Rav Aharon would never sit in the passenger seat of a car if it meant that the spouse of the driver would have to sit in the back. 3) At the levaya, the children discussed in various ways how he spent time with each of them.

May the Torah of Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein serve as a beacon of inspiration for the entire Jewish people and may his memory always be for a blessing.  Click here for the Video tribute to him in honor of his 80th Birthday Celebration at Yeshivat Har Etzion.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Daniel Cohen


  • our new Director of Synagogue Operations, Matt Feinberg. Stop by the office or call to say hello!
  • to the BCDS 8th grade students and the Yachad advisers and participants for their annual Yachad Shabbaton at Congregation Agudath Sholom.

  • Mincha services will be held this Friday night at 6 PM and 7 PM. We are hosting the Yachad Shabbaton with BCDS and Shabbat mincha will be held at 7:10PM as we join Yachad for Seudat Shlishit.

OU Kosher Alerts

  • MacFarms Caramelized Sea Salt Macadamia Nuts. The Orthodox Union certifies a variety of MacFarms Macadamia Nuts, but does not certify the Caramelized Sea Salt variety. This product bears an unauthorized OU symbol and contains dairy ingredients.

Fairway and Kosher Update from Rabbi Cohen

  • We thank everyone for their constructive feedback to the Fairway inquiry. I shared the data with the VP at Fairway who is reviewing the information with senior management. I will stay in touch with any new developments. Also, thank you for increased support of our kosher establishments. Please keep up the momentum. Your dedication is invaluable for the continued growth of kosher offerings in our area.

New R3CA video

  • This month's "The Torah of Brokenness" is by Rabbi Daniel Yolkut of Pittsburgh, PA. This video asks a basic question about parshat emor and the invalidation of kohanim who have certain blemishes. Rabbi Yolkut asks how we can translate these limitations in an era of inclusion, and he delivers a meaningful distinction between two types of worship. He closes with an inspiring story which leaves the viewer deeply moved. This is a piece of Torah which can be shared with many people who face challenges both spiritually and socially. click here to see it

Yasher Koach

  • to Rabbi Shakked and Chemda Parhi for organizing a meaningful and inspiring Yom Hazikaron and Yom Haatzmaut program

Note of Gratitude

  • Daisy Schaeffer and her family would like to extend their appreciation and gratitude to everyone for their acts of kindness and support. It meant more than you realized and helped to heal the hole in our hearts.

Adult Education Met Trip  Sunday, April 26 - 11:00 AM

Adult Education Met Trip

Paintings at the Met: A Jewish Perspective with Eitan Kastner
Jewish History through Western Art
Though Jews made up only a small minority of the European population in the year 1000, they played a surprisingly robust role in the development of European civilization in general and art in particular over the subsequent millennium. The galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art can serve as a textbook to recreate this history through paint and stone, wood and canvas. On this tour we will gain a better understanding of Jewish history in the west and the evolving perception of Jews by their European counterparts.
about our guide, Eitan Kastner
Eitan Kastner teaches history and art history at the Frisch School and is a licensed New York City Tour Guide, who leads Jewish themed tours at New York attractions and museums.
