Special Announcements

TORAH NEW YORK: Ahavas Achim invites you to join us in a pre-Rosh Hashanah learning celebration along with thousands of others as the Orthodox Union presents Torah New York indoors at Citifield, Queens on Sunday, September 22. Torah New York will be a wonderful day of learning featuring the Torah world's most inspiring and sought-after teachers, with dozens of classes and panels from which to choose. In addition to the main program, there will be programming for teenagers run by NCSY, including a “Torah Bowl” competition uniting tri-state high schools in Torah knowledge, as well as robust children’s programming, including GrowTorah, a shofar factory, a kosher chocolate factory, and much more. Ahavas Achim is proud to partner with the Orthodox Union and we encourage community members of all ages to join Rabbi Miodownik and your Ahavas Achim family at Torah New York. Round trip coach bus from Ahavas Achim to Citifield will be provided free of charge: sponsored by Mark and Rachel Stein in memory of Corinne and Herman Stein z"l; and by Barry and Marcia Levinson in memory ofמשה מרדכי בן ראובן ז"ל (See newsletter for registration for event and bus.)
