LETTER FROM THE RABBI

Summer 5778

Dearest Friends,

This past year has been a year of great activity at the BAYT. Our shul is a beautiful place for Torah and Avodat Hashem. To all who have recently joined, welcome! Bruchim HaBaim! If you are new, please take full advantage of our multiple services and minyanim. I look forward to seeing you often!

So many celebrated smachot this year, and to all, we wish you continued mazel tov. Leil Limmud, Shabbat Itanu, and our seniors’ Lunch and Learn program are just some of the successful programs of the past year. We’ve also hosted some fascinating guest speakers: Chief Rabbi David Lau, Rabbi Meir Soloveitchik, Dr. Karl Skorecki, Dr. Yael Ziegler, Shlomo Katz, Rabbi Yehoshua Hoffman for Shabbat Itanu, Rabbi Natan Slifkin, Rabbi Shmuel Goldin, and of course, our beloved Rav, Rabbi Taub.

This year saw our annual Brotherhood Mission go not only to Israel, but also to Poland to relive the world of Ashkenazic Jewry that was lost in the Shoah. I invite you to join Karen and me for this year’s mission to Israel, December 9-18, an experience you’ll never forget.

Our capital renovations have begun and you should be soon seeing some very beautiful results of the new and improved BAYT.

I am grateful to all of our office, custodial and professional staff for all they do, day in and day out, for the betterment of our shul. Kudos to the entire executive and board, which, until June, was under the capable leadership of president, Dr. Melech Tanen, and which is now under the tutelage of our equally capable new president, Mr. Zac Kaye. May Hashem truly bless all those who volunteer and contribute for the BAYT.

 

We bid farewell this year to Rabbi Jonathan and Ora Ziring, but we look forward to the next YU Kollel rabbinic assistant. Our entire rabbinic staff is committed to being accessible to you as much as possible. Please remember that if you’d ever like to meet personally – for whatever reason – you can always schedule an appointment with our office. I look forward to our time together.

On behalf of Karen, myself, and our children, mi-Bayt l’Bayt, may you all be blessed with a healthy and happy 5779. May it be a year of redemption, salvation, and consolation for us all. Kesivah va-chasimah tovah.

Warmest personal regards,

Rabbi N. Daniel Korobkin
