The Little Minyan That Could

Kesher Torah “The Little Minyan That Could”

For nearly a decade Kesher Torah has been home to heartfelt Shabbos and Yom Tov davening and inspirational, thought provoking Divrei Chizuk from leading voices within our community.  Under the leadership of HaRav Pinchos Gruman, Shlita, our little Minyan is renowned for its warmth, friendliness and sincerity.

Until now, by the grace of Hashem, we have sustained the vision for our beautiful minyan through membership dues and an annual fundraising event. Unfortunately we had to postpone our annual fundraising event and we are in urgent need of your help to allow us to continue to provide the community with:

*Participatory, harmonious and talk-free davening
*Weekly Carlebach Kabbalos Shabbos
*Supervised childcare and educational youth groups
*Youth Laining Initiative encouraging recent Bar Mitzvah bochurim to lain
*Lights Out Shalosh Seudos with song and Divrei Chizzuk from community speakers
*A safe environment for those new to davening for the amud
*Hosted Shabbos meal program for guests

*Programming that is open to the entire community, such as Simchas Torah Dinner, Purim Mesibah, Chanukkah Party, Yom Kippur Kattan for Elul (with laining) and the “Tisha B’ Av Made More Meaningful” program.

All donations - one time and recurring -  are appreciated and we also offer the following ways to recognize your support:

*Sponsor a month of davening and learning in honor or memory ($1,000)
*Purchase a leaf of our Tree of Life for a departed loved one ($360)
*Sponsor a Kiddush ($150, $250 or $400)
*Sponsor a Shalosh Seudos ($100, $180, or $360)
*Sponsor a chag or special event

Contact info@keshertorah.org for more information

On behalf of all of us at Kesher Torah, we thank you for your support and generosity and wish you bracha and hatzlacha,

Saul Ackerman, President 
Dr. Elly Berlin, Gabbai
Seth Merewitz, Board Chairman
