What a blast! 

Our 1st annual YIGC Chulent Cook-off last week was a blast!  The prize for Best Chulent, tickets to an Indians game, donated by our own president, Alan Schabes, went to Diane and Ross Wilkoff.  But actually, everyone who tasted the varieties of delicious chulent was a winner!  Thanks to all the chefs and all the sponsors.


“This was the most fun event I’ve been to in a long time... Thanks, Yank, [and your committee] for your long and hard efforts to make this happen. And thanks to Debby Berger as well for her behind-the-scene role. If you were there an hour before shabbos watching her rescue some of us … you would appreciate [her all the more]!”

Young Israel of Oak Park Upcoming Event(s)

Pre Rosh Hashana Lecture Series II

Young Israel of Oak Park

DATE: Shabbos, September 12, 2009

TIME: 6:20PM

TOPIC: "Elevating Ourselves in Elevating Times"

One of the Lamed-Vav

A Special Screening for the 40th Yahrzeit of

Rabbi Aryeh Levin Tz''l

DATE: Saturday night, September 12, 2009

TIME: 10:30PM

LOCATION: Young Israel of Oak Park


Event Detail

       In a fascinating journey that takes us through the Orthodox neighborhoods of Jerusalem, as well as to theaters, kibbutzim, army bases, coffee houses and Torah study halls, we follow the footsteps of the Jerusalem saint Rabbi Arye Levin (1885-1969). Realities and memories mingle in this contemporary expedition, interweaving diary entries and philosophical expositions, documentary scenes and powerfully expressive illustrations.

        One of the Lamed-Vav is the story of a rabbi and an intellectual of a caliber unequalled to this day, describing the life of a true saint while emphasizing that every human being, regardless of religious inclination, may achieve this same lofty spiritual fulfillment.

A graduate of Barnard, she received a Masters in Social Work from Columbia, a Masters in Bible and a Doctorate from the Jewish Theological Seminary. She loved studying and teaching Bible and served in many key roles in the world of Jewish Education including Hebrew School teacher, Day School principal, BJE curriculum specialist, and director of Education at Camp Ramah.
