Bris Avrohom Plans 41st Annual Dinner

(Courtesy of Bris Avrohom) Bris Avrohom will be hosting its 41st annual dinner this year on Sunday, November 8. The highlight of this year’s dinner will be the commencement of a new unity sefer Torah. The concept behind this new Torah is the merit of unity and protection, which is especially crucial in these uncertain times.

As it is written in the Book of Daniel:

“וּבָעֵת הַהִיא יִמָּלֵט עַמְּךָ כָּל־הַנִּמְצָא כָּתוּב בַּסֵּפֶר—At that time, your people will be rescued, all who are found inscribed in the book.”

The writing of the sefer Torah will commence on November 8 at 11 a.m. on the front lawn of Congregation Shomrei Torah—Ohel Yosef Yitzchok—Bris Avrohom Center, and will be completed in Jerusalem, the Jewish capital for over 3,000 years. Our sages teach us that the name Jerusalem symbolizes peace as it is an ir shalom, a peaceful city.

Everyone is invited to support and participate in this historic moment, when each person will be able to write a letter in the sefer Torah, by reservation only.

The mission of the Rebbe to conduct annual weddings is again carrying on this year, yet due to COVID-19 limitations Bris Avrohom is unable to organize a gala wedding as in years past. However, a group of couples has signed up and will be individually married off according to the guidance and permissions provided by the state of New Jersey.

All the activities of Bris Avrohom are continuing with Zoom classes, lectures and family visits through social distancing. Cheder Yaldei Menachem has resumed in person under the leadership of Shterney Kanelsky, who is operating the cheder with a dedicated staff of teachers and assistants along with the dedicated director, Fruma Rosenberg, with many children in attendance daily.

Chanukah is one of Bris Avrohom’s yearly major activities with over 140 menorahs, and viewers all over the state of New Jersey. In appreciation of one of the major New Jersey organizations that has helped spread the light of Chanukah to hundreds of thousands of travelers, they will bestow this year’s Community Service Award upon Kevin Corbett, president & CEO of New Jersey Transit.
