Community Siyum to Honor our Mara d’Asra and Rebbetzin
In honor of Rabbi Dr. Gershon Gewirtz, and Dr. Mindy Gewirtz, who will be retiring after 30 years of dedicated service to our kehillah and the Greater Boston community, the Young Israel of Brookline is coordinating a community-wide learning effort to culminate in a siyum celebration on 18th of Iyar/May 18th. This is a special opportunity to learn in their merit as we recognize our Mara d’Asra and the Rebbetzin for the wonderful contributions they have made to our community. We are hoping through our collective efforts to complete the study of Chamisha Chumshei Torah and Mishnayos Seder Mo’ed and hope you will sign up for one of the many learning opportunities. Both Young Israel members and others are welcome and encouraged to participate. You may choose one or more parshiot or masechet mishnayot. Please click here to sign up on line at www.siyumim.com. We look forward to your participation and to honoring Rabbi Gewirtz and Mindy with the gift of our learning and the siyum celebration in May. Thank you for joining us!
