Come Honor the Durani Family this Shabbos!

DuraniAvinoam 150x200Rabbi Avinoam Durani, after having served officially as our Baal Koreh for three years, will be leaving that position to accept a new role as the Rabbi of the Sephardic Congregation of Newton. 

DuraniUriya 00We are very happy for Rabbi Durani, but he and his entire family will be missed.

Rabbi Durani and members of The Durani Family have taught adult classes, conducted children's programs, produced holiday party activities, DuraniOdeyagiven sermons, shared sage counsel, and truly enhanced the life of our shul in ways diverse, abundant and continuous since joining the community ten years ago.


Please join us in honoring our dear friends, The Durani Family, with a special festive kiddush this coming Shabbos morning, April 26th. 

We invite everyone to bring friends and family, and also to make a donation to co-sponsor this event in their honor.

Our Newest Video: Jewish Music From Three Continents

concertDid you miss the wonderful concert, Jewish Music From Three Continents that we presented last month? 

Well not anymore!  We recorded it.  

We hope you enjoy our newest video.  It's a video of that evening's exciting performance of Ernst Bloch's Baal Shem: Three Pictures of Hassidic Life.

Jewish Music from Three Continents is also the title of the beautiful studio recording Sergey Khanukaev and Daniel Broniatowski completed and released just days before the concert.  Here is a link to purchase the CD.

Eighth Annual Family Picnic with the Trees

WeinbergRabbi-150x200There is a berachah that we can say only once a year, when we see two (or more) different species of fruit-bearing trees in bloom simultaneously.  Each year, we come together to say it.  This year, we will gather for our Eighth Annual Family Picnic With the Trees on Sunday May 4th, from 12 noon to 2:00 PM. 

May 4th is also Yom HaZikaron, so this year our guest speakers will connect trees to Yom HaZikaron.  Rabbi Norbert Weinberg,  Rabbi Avinoam Durani, and other area rabbis have graciously consented to address us. 

chickensIt's a fun gathering.  There's good food for humans, and birdseed for kids to feed the chickens.  There's festive music, a drash (see our online recordings of Picnic with the Trees Shiurim for examples from prior years), and a chance to say this berachah together.

Adams Street Team Walk This Sunday!

DrapkinRonny-new-150x200The Adams Street Team is currently nearing the top of the fund-raisers ranking.  You can put us on top!

Join your friends, and make new ones, as members of the Adams Street Shul participate in the Second Annual Walk for Rofeh, this 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!

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!

Community-Wide Yom HaShoah Commemoration This Sunday

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. 

This 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.
