Second Annual Dinner of Toldos Yeshurun

We would like to invite you to the Second Annual Dinner of Toldos Yeshurun in New York.


The Second Annual Dinner of Toldos Yeshurun, BS"D, will take place Sunday, November 4th, 2007


in Brooklyn, New York, in Renaissance Hall (5902 14th Avenue)


at 6 PM, the first day of Parshas "Toldos" .


Guests of Honor are


Rabbi Dovid Cynamon


Rabbi Avraham Perlow


Rabbi Shloime Weinberger


Mr. Israel Starck (Chicago).


Renowned graphic artist and illustrator of Jewish books Rabbi Gadi Pollack will be representing the Russian-speaking religious Jewish community of Israel as a Guest of Honor. The books in English and Hebrew illustrated by rabbi Gadi Pollack are used and loved by thousands of Jewish children and adults all over the world, but not everyone knows that rabbi Gadi Pollack immigrated to Israel from the former Soviet Union and that he has been an avrech in an Israeli kollel for a long time already.


The Russian-speaking religious Jewish community of the United States will be represented by Guest of Honor Rabbi Avraham Binsky, a former student of Rabbi Yitzchok Zilber zt"l, who is now the Rav of Kehilas Moreshes Yaakov", a Congregation of Russian Jews in Brooklyn, New York.


A very important part of the Dinner will be the announcement of the English version of Rav Yitzchok Zilber\'s autobiography "That You Remain A Jew". The English version of the book will be presented by Rabbi Eliezer Dimarsky, Rav of HERITAGE, the Russian Jewish Congregation of Chicago, who has translated the book to English.


Rabbi Sholom Kamenetsky, Rosh Yeshiva of the Talmudical Yeshiva of Philadelphia is expected to be the Guest Speaker.


There will be separate classes for men and ladies before the event from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Rabbi Ben Tzion Zilber will give a gemora class for men, while Rabbi Asher Kushnir will speak to the ladies.


New CDs with lectures of Rabbi Asher Kushnir and original paintings of Gadi Pollack will be available for purchase at the dinner.


On November 2-3, 2007 (the Shabbos before the event) there will be a small Shabbaton in Brooklyn with Rabbi Ben Tzion Zilber and Rabbi Asher Kushnir . For more information about the Shabbaton and possibilities of Shabbos accommodation (for guests from outside of Brooklyn) please send an e-mail to dinner@toldot.ru.

Toldos Yeshurun is a non-profit public organization uniting Russian-speaking religious Jewry.
Our main objective is to establish a Russian-speaking religious community in
Israel through the creation of an Educational Torah Network, and reconnecting "Russian" Jews to their roots with the help of young Rabbis.


Toldos Yeshurun has a Yeshivah, Rabbinical Kollel, and a website visited every day by 500-700 people from the USA, Israel and Europe.


Support of all our programms requers funds and we would like to count on support of our friends in America.
