Happy Passover!

passov4The Adams Street Shul wishes you, and all your friends and loved ones, a joyous Peasch! 

See our calendar for the holiday scheduule, including candle-lighting times, services times, and the times to search for chametz, cease eating chametz, burning chametz, and so on.  (See the article below for information about selling your chametz.)

If you need a break from cleaning, we hope you receive inspiration from some of our online recorded Passover educational programs: 

The Five Mitzvot of the Seder

Finding Childhood... Again

schwaber-Evelyne-AlbrechtEvelyne Albrecht Schwaber, a renowned psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, was four years old when she fled Vienna with her parents in 1938, six months after the Anschluss.  Two years later, after a temporary sojourn in Switzerland, she and her parents came to the United States. 

On Sunday, April 27 (28 Nissan 5774), Dr. Schwaber will be the Guest Speaker at the annual Community-Wide Yom Ha-Shoah Commemoration, which is co-sposonsored by the Adams Street Shul.  The title of her presentation is “Finding My Childhood – Again: Fleeing the Shoah.”

The program will also include a video feature and a presentation by Maimonides students.  “Yom Hashoah is a day of remembrance,” Dr. Schwaber says. “My story tells of the nature and power of memories lost and recovered.”

This year's commemoration will be held at the S. Joseph Solomont Synagogue, at the Maimonides School (34 Philbrick Rd., Brookline).  The commemoration begins at 8:00 PM, preceded by mincha at 7:30 PM.

Adams Street Fields a Team!

DrapkinRonny-new-150x200Join your friends, and make new ones, as members of the Adams Street Shul participate in the Second Annual Walk for Rofeh, on Sunday, April 27, at the DCR Chestnut Hill Reservoir.  This event is a 5 km (3.1 mile) family-friendly walk to support Rofeh International. 

Rofeh is a great cause!  People from all around the world and throughout the United States come to Boston’s prestigious medical centers for life saving medical treatment.  These patients and their families are stuck far from home, perhaps for a long time, and are feeling vulnerable in a stressful and unfamiliar environment. 

Rofeh ensures that the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of patients and their families are met with loving kindness, warmth and dignity.  The Rofeh support system includes medical referrals, food, housing, and social services — all at no charge to those stressed with illness and financial pressures.

Horowitz Rabbi Naftoli HorowitzRofeh was founded by the previous Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Levi Yitzchok Horowitz; and is now directed by his youngest son, the current Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Naftali Yehuda Horowitz.

Now that Purim is over, please consider signing up for the walk.  Help raise money for this great charity that is doing important work right here in Boston. 

And you get a really cool Rofeh T-shirt, and a Team Adams Street cap!

The link to register is: http://walk.rofehint.org/rofeh/register.asp

If you can’t make the walk, please consider making a donation on our Team page to support this cause: http://walk.rofehint.org/rofeh/teampage.asp?fundid=1830

Registration is $36 for students; $54 for individuals; and $72 for families (no limit on number of family members).  There is no fundraising minimum.

Now that Purim is over please consider signing up for the 5 km (3.1 miles) walk on Sunday, April 27th, to support Rofeh International.

This is a great opportunity to do something together as a family, as friends, and as a community.  The Drapkin, Kadden, and Cantor families have already signed up, and more are on the way!  We are looking forward to walking together!
