Our Shlichei Beit Ha-Knesset 

It is with great excitement that we relaunch our Youth Minyan this week under the leadership of our new Shlichei Beit Ha-Knesset, Raz and Boaz Ben-Chorin.  

Raz and Boaz are familiar to many of you from their wonderful work at Yeshivat ​​​​​​​He-Atid, where they teach in the Middle School.  

In addition to running our youth minyan as part of our wonderful Youth Department led by Shevy Chait, Raz and Boaz will engage our Middle School age students with Shabbat afternoon activities throughout the course of the year.  We are excited for their creativity and dynamism, and deep desire to help our growing community.  In particular, we know that Raz and Boaz will help connect our children to the Land of Israel.

Please join us this Shabbat in welcoming Boaz, Raz, and their three children, Be'erei, Kerem, and Matar.
