Young Israel of Greater Pittsburgh's

Rabbi Shimon Silver's Halochoscope Series
Number 40 on Sefiras HaOmer


Kinyan Torah Project Sefiras Haomer 2010

Young Israel of Memphis is proud to introduce our latest Torah learning project, the Kinyan Torah Project. During each day of Sefira, the shul will email a short 4-5 minute video of a different method by which to acquire Torah, as listed in the sixth Perek of Pirkei Avos. Each video will be presented by a different member of the shul. This is a creative and easy way to prepare for the holiday of Shevuos and Kabbolos HaTorah. Please scroll down for the latest video updates. If you have any questions, comments or feedback about this project, please direct them to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Commemorating the 1929 Hebron Massacre, and in anticipation of Yom Yerushalayim

Screening of film: What I Saw in Hebron

This Thursday, May 6, at 8:15 p.m. in the Social Hall there will be an exclusive screening of the film
What I Saw in Hebron
(film length: 73 minutes)

Seventy years after the 1929 Hebron massacre, directors Noit and Dan Geva bring us the personal testimony of 12 people who survived the atrocity. Noit Geva's grandmother, who was only 16 years old at the time of the massacre, was so traumatized by the event that she never spoke of her experience, but recorded what she witnessed in a journal entry entitled "What I Saw in Hebron." This gripping documentary allows a rare glimpse into a little-known moment in Israel's history.
