Tisha B’Av Program Planned at Keter Torah

On Thursday, Tisha B’Av, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Keter Torah in Teaneck and the Orthodox Union will present Rabbi Steven Weil on “Your Rod and Your Staff.” This program, live from Keter Torah, 600 Roemer Ave., will also be broadcast on www.ou.org/tishabav.

Rabbi Steven Weil

There will be an 8:15 a.m. Shacharit minyan prior to Rabbi Weil’s presentation; a 3 p.m. Mincha minyan will follow.

At 4 p.m., Keter Torah will screen “Four Winters.” “All I owned was my camera, leopard coat, rifle and a grenade in case I’m captured…the pillow was the rifle, the walls were the trees and the sky was the roof,” said Faye Schulman, one of over 25,000 Jewish partisans who fought against the Nazis and their collaborators from deep within the forests of Eastern Europe, Ukraine and Belarus. Against extraordinary odds, they escaped Nazi slaughter, transforming from young innocents raised in closely knit families to courageous resistance fighters. Shattering the myth of Jewish passivity, the last surviving partisans tell their stories in “Four Winters,” revealing a stunning narrative of heroism and resilience.
