Mir Yerushalayim has been fortunate to have many alumni and friends who live in the Far Rockaway-Lawrence area. Unfortunately, many of their close talmidim and yedidim were severely affected by the hurricane a few weeks ago and are trying to bring their lives back into normalcy once again.
Mir Yerushalayim has always had a close kinship with the entire community and is happy to join this coming Shabbos by bringing two of their most distinguished rebbeim, HaRav HaGaon Yosef Elefant, shlita, and HaRav HaGaon Nissan Kaplan, shlita, to share with them divrei chizuk and inspiration for the entire weekend. They will be speaking at many neighborhood shuls throughout the Shabbos. An oneg Shabbos is scheduled at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ariel Aber at 86 Harborview West. The Shabbos will culminate with a melavah malkah at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dovid Scharf, 15 Keewaydin Road, at 8:30 p.m., where the entire community and alumni from the New York area are invited to join. A kumzitz with dancing will follow in the spirit of ish es rei’eihu ya’azru ul’achiv yomar chazak, one should help his friend and give him strength. We hope that this special gathering will give the community the chizuk they so desperately need as they attempt to go back to their daily activities.
