The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

Rabbi Gedaliah Fleer, Rabbi Shia Zuber, Rabbi David Maayan, Rabbi Shlomo Yaffe -- at a Melavah Malkah at the Adams Street Shul, November 17, 2012.Last Saturday, amidst good food, good music, and good friends, Rabbi Gedaliah Fleer,  Rabbi Shia Zuber, and Rabbi David Maayan shared educational and inspirational stories and jokes.  For those who couldn't be there, we are happy to provide the video below.

Many thanks to the musicians, Moshe Marchette and Mr. Sadetsky.  Thank you also to the event organizers:  Nechama Cheses,  Esther Leah Marchette, and Benyomin Fleischmann.  And thank you to the wonderful volunteers who came early to set up everything and stayed late to put the Elmer Lippin Social Hall back together:  Phyllis Tannenbaum,  Rustin Shenkman,  Joyce the Voice, and Aryeh Cheses.

The Melavah Malkah began with a thirty-five minute reception, featuring live music, food, and socializing.  The video below includes only seventeen minutes of the music, because after that the crowd had grown to the point that the sounds of socializing obscured the music in the video.

Next up on the video is the event's hostess, Nechama Cheses, who welcomes everyone and introduces the Shul's special guest presenters:  Rabbi Gedaliah Fleer, Rabbi Shia Zuber, and Rabbi David Maayan.  The three rabbis then spoke in that order, for about fifteen minutes each.

We hope you enjoy the video.  Donations to support our educational programs and their availability on the Internet are always welcome.
