Seuda Shelishit, 5:45 PM:
Q & A with Rav Hanan Schlesinger


Rav Hanan Schlesinger

Hanan Schlesinger is an Orthodox rabbi, teacher, and passionate Zionist settler, who has been profoundly transformed by his friendship with the Palestinians he has met.  His understanding of the reality of the Middle East conflict, and of Zionism, has been utterly complicated by the parallel universe to which they have introduced him. 

Originally from New York, Rav Hanan made aliya at the age of 20 and has lived over the green line, in Alon Shvut, Gush Etzion, for over 30 years. He spent over 10 years learning in Israeli Talmudic seminaries and also studied towards a MA in Jewish Philosophy at Hebrew University. His professional career has been dedicated to teaching Jewish studies in various colleges and seminaries in the Jerusalem area, as well as in different frameworks in Florida and Texas.

It was in Dallas about 9 years ago that he became involved in interfaith work, first with Christians, and then with Muslims. There he founded Faiths in Conversation, a framework for Jewish - Christian – Muslim theological dialogue. The mind-expanding experience of these trialogues inspired him to attempt to meet Muslims and Christians back in the Holy Land.

Although always drawn to pluralism and deeply empathic for the other, Rav Hanan had never formed a personal relationship with a Palestinian until he returned to Gush Etzion about three and a half years ago. The meetings that began then have become far more meaningful than he could have imagined. He found himself part of the small team that founded Roots/Shorashim/Judur and has dedicated himself to bringing reconciliation to that tiny sliver of land that both Palestinians and Israelis call home.

We are thrilled to announce the hiring of Shifra Friedman as the new Yoetzet Halacha for our Sixth Street community.

 

Yoatzot Halacha are women who serve as a resource regarding Taharat Hamishpacha (the area of Jewish Law that relates to marriage, sexuality, ritual immersion, and women's health). Yoatzot Halacha are trained and certified by Nishmat and a panel of Orthodox rabbis. This position was initiated for women who might be more comfortable discussing sensitive issues with female religious advisors.

Shiffy Friedman graduated from Nishmat’s Miriam Glaubach Center’s U.S. Yoatzot Halacha Fellows Program in 2015. She has been counseling women in the area of women's health and halacha, both through her role as Yoetzet Halacha in Westchester County and through teaching brides and couples before marriage. Shiffy has taught at SAR Academy and currently teaches at Ma'ayanot Yeshiva High School. She received her B.A. in Judaic studies from Stern College and a dual M.A. in Education and Jewish Studies from New York University. Prior to that, she spent a year studying in Israel at the Stella K. Abraham Beit Midrash for Women in Migdal Oz. She and her husband, Rabbi Noam Friedman, live with their two children, Avital and Adir, in Morningside Heights, where they serve as the OU-JLIC couple at Columbia/Barnard Hillel. They look forward to getting to know members of the broader Manhattan community.

Book of Remembrance 5778

08/21/2017 06:54:30 PM

Aug21

  


The High Holy Day season is a time of repentance and atonement, contemplation and prayer. One of the strongest emotional moments that we experience this period, and especially on Yom Kippur, is the recalling of the memory of those loved ones who have meant so much to us and have gone on to eternal life.

 

To enhance the Yizkor Service, our synagogue will again assemble our own Book of Remembrance. This is an opportunity for us all to remember those people (relatives, friends, teachers, etc.) who greatly impacted our lives. To view last year's book, click here.

 

 

The booklet will contain:

1. The complete Yizkor Service and assorted readings and psalms
2. Your sponsored pages, half-pages, quarter pages and/or entry listings of those that you chose to honor and remember
3. A message from Rabbi Bellino

We urge all our members and friends to take part in our Book of Remembrance.

The final date of submission for all entries must be no later than September 17, 2017.

Please submit (English/Hebrew) names, relation, and yahretzeit dates. For full, half and quarter page entries, please consider adding a brief statement.

FULL PAGE…………………$180
HALF PAGE…………………$ 108
QUARTER PAGE……………$ 54
LISTING (EACH ENTRY)……$ 10

If you wish to make the same dedication as last year, please let us know.


Please send all entries and any questions to info@sixthstreetsynagogue.org

We thank you in advance for your participation in this meaningful project.
