Baruch Link Scholar in Residence Fund
As you might have heard, Beth Am is establishing a Scholar in Residence program in memory of our beloved Minyan member Baruch Link. The funds from this program will bring a scholar of Hebrew literature to Beth Am each year to teach us, and honor Baruch. Beth Am has created a link on its website to donate by credit card directly. The link is www.tbala.org/Baruchlink. Please give whatever you can to preserve Baruch's memory, and so that we can all appreciate the beauty of Hebrew literature. For further information, please contact Joel Grossman or Ed Levine. Thanks so much.
In the Haftorah Plethora for Vayikra, Rick draws a line between Izzy’s (Isaiah to the rest of us) use of the word “kav” in this week’s haftarah and in the haftarah for Shemot. Larry suggests that Isaiah offers a restatement of the covenant between God and the people. Don’t miss this week’s episode where the mysteries of the Kamatz Katan are lovingly revealed.
The Mishnah Study Group will be gathering to learn on March 20th with Henry Morgen.
