For your convenience, KSY now provides credit card facilities! Instead of writing out 12 membership checks, you can simply swipe your card once and automatically be debited every month. Payments for Yomim Noraim seats and general donations can also be processed by credit card. Just come to one of our weekday minyanim with your card (Mastercard and Visa preferred), or phone in your donation to the treasurer (Avraham Nadell 054 244 8012). We are also currently developing a secure page on our website to accept credit card payments and donations.
If anyone has inside or outside toys to donate to the shul to be used during children's service please speak to Andy Behr (999 email@example.com) or Heidi Bergenfeld (995 firstname.lastname@example.org).
Remember that all members are invited to come to the KSY Members' Forum at http://forum.ksy.org.il and submit constructive comments about the Kehilla. You must register first to gain access.
Neshei KSY are in the process of planning some interesting activities for the KSY Community. We would like to have as many women involved as possible. If you would be interested in helping please contact Sarah Gordon at 991-6186 or email@example.com or Heidi Bergenfeld at 995-2187 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Rebbetzin Haber at 644-7308 or email@example.com as soon as possible.
Support the Rav and the Kehilla by joining KSY or renewing your existing membership for 5770! Baruch Hashem, Kehillas Shivtei Yeshurun has experienced tremendous growth and we have significantly increased our programming and activities, from the Rav's weekly Pirkei Avos shiur and Rav Yechiel's daily Brachos gemora chabura to several daily minyanim. Membership is the primary way that we can fund these services to the tzibur. Dues are 140 shekels per month and entitles you to special prices on seats for the Yomim Noraim, among other benefits.
- If you're considering joining KSY, now is a great time, as we start off the new year in our new location.
- If you're an existing member, KSY's "fiscal" year ends in August 2009, which means almost all members are only paid up until August 2009.
Especially now with the obligations of our new home, we need all members' and friends support. All efforts to sort out payments by the end of August would be especially appreciated. Please contact our Treasurer, Avraham Nadell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to discuss your specific situation.
KSY is happy to announce that we've arranged to daven Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur at the newly constructed shul located at 1 Nachal Katlav (the structure closer to KSY).
While there will be sufficient space for all members and many guests, there is still only a fixed number of seats, and we expect a high demand this year.
|Both Rosh Hashonah & Yom Kippur||120₪ - First Seat
80₪ - Each additional seat
|Rosh Hashonah only or Yom Kippur only||80₪||160₪|
Members are defined as those who have either paid or made arrangements for 5770 dues of 140₪ per month. It is important to the Rav and the Vaad that no one refrain from reserving seats due to the financial considerations. Please contact our Treasurer, Avraham Nadell (email@example.com) to discuss specific cases. Members can purchase additional seats for a spouse or a dependent child living in their home at 80₪. All others can purchase seats at the non-member rate.
Please contact Gabbai Shaul Behr to reserve your seats.
Kehillas Shivtei Yeshurun has rented space for our shul at 2/1 Dolev, and we now have a 24/7 space available to the kehilla! We are looking to rent out the upstairs rooms of the house as office space to recover much of the cost of the rental. If you are interested or know of someone who may be interested in renting space, please contact Brian or Elisha at the below numbers.
Kehillas Shivtei Yeshurun would like to welcome Tsivya Fox as a new member!
Thanks to "Handy" Randy Zelcer for donating his services to KSY, installing the lock on the men's entrance.
Family Simcha? Good news to share? Please share it with your kehilla! Send in your announcements to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 999-8923 for inclusion in this newsletter.
This week we are privileged to have a profile of Tuvia and Paula Wertheim, who have been members for the past few months.
Tuvia and Paula Wertheim met while studying at Hoftra University on Long Island, New York. They made aliyah is 1975 immediately following their wedding and went to ulpan on kibbutz Ein Tzurim and eventually became members until 1980 when they moved to Moshav Elazar in Gush Etzion (when it was a tiny moshav in the middle of nowhere with 15 families). They lived there for 16 years and when it became privatized and moved to Jerusalem (Har Nof) for 13 years. They have 9 children (bli ayin hara) , ranging in ages from 32-14; four are married - three are living in RBS, and one in Ramat Shlomo.
Tuvia is an audio developer and internet classical music broadcaster (those of you who love baroque style music can hear his work at baroque247.com; or can hear samples of his work in other genres on his audio development website hdaudioplus.com) If there are any Aussies in the kehilla, Tuvia just helped launch indie performer Tony Cuic's career by producing his debut single "Skatergrind" in HD Audio Plus which was recently bought by BMG and will be distributed worldwide in the fall.
Paula is assistant office manager at Machon Hala (Rachel Nash Comprehensive Breast Clinic) in Givat Shaul, and is involved with helping parents of children at risk (non-professionally), as well as being Tuvia's office manager, and "bubbie" to an increasing tribe of grandchildren (kein yirbu!). Arrived in RBS erev Pesach and are thrilled to be here!
Help us get to know your family better. Please consider writing up a short paragraph or two describing your background, family, schools and anything else of interest to be featured in this column. If you're interested, please contact Yechiel Weisz at email@example.com.

Come join KSY's morning minyon Minyon 'ב - Rav Haber generally shares some Torah thoughts after this 2nd minyon. Start your day off on the right foot with KSY and help us build our kehilla at the same time.
Week beginning 6-Sep-09.
In order to make the mi shebeirach for cholim a little more efficient, KSY now maintains a list of cholim via the internet. Current names on the list can be seen at http://www.ksy.org.il/cholim.asp. Please note that names that have not been updated for more than 2 months will not be announced. You can update a name by notifying the KSY Secretary or by logging into your account and editing the older Cholim records.
KSY would like to thank the following people for their donations during the past week:
- 1000₪ - Shaul and Andy Behr
Please consider allowing us to announce your name when thanking you for your donation. Public donations tend to encourage others to follow your lead when they see the efforts of others.
- Donation from Israel: Please contact Avraham Nadell, KSY Treasurer, for information on Israel tax receipts.
- Donation from USA: American Friends of Kehillas Shivtei Yeshurun can accept your donation on behalf of the kehilla. See www.afoksy.com/donate for complete details.
Did you know? Everyone who is called to the Torah on Shabbos or Yom Tov gets one free mi sheberach. The Gabbai will then offer the Oleh l'Torah an optional 2nd mi sheberach. If one accepts the Gabbai’s offer, the custom in our Kehilla is to obligate oneself to make a modest donation. Please turn to any of the gabboim if you should have a question about this.
Rav Haber is away and will return on 7-Sep-09. The Rav can be contacted via his regular email address.
In light of the fact that a number of KSY members and friends are currently looking for work, Rav Haber is interested in using his network to help the situation. Please assemble your CV, a generic cover letter and a short job description title (e.g., Accountant, Web designer) and send them all to Rav Haber (firstname.lastname@example.org). Rav Haber plans to reach out to his many contacts to see how people can be helped.
Can't get enough of the Rav's Torah? Listening to his MP3 shiurim is almost as good as being there. The Rav has given a number of thought provoking shiurim as part of his Tefilla Series and the Mesechta Avoda Zora chaburah that are available at www.ksy.org.il/audio.asp. Topics include: "What is bracha", "Krias Shema - Oneness with Hashem", "Giving Thanks", "When is my tefilla accepted", "The Goal of Olam haZeh", "Using the forces of Heaven" and many more.
The Rav is currently away. To reach him, please use his email. Rav Haber is available for shealos, eitzah, etc. on a daily basis from 13:00-16:00 or whenever urgent matters come up, at 052-539-5216. The Rav can be reached by email at email@example.com, but please allow at least 48 hours for a thoughtful response. If the issue requires discussion, the Rav would prefer to speak in person rather than both email and phone. Please feel free to contact the Rav via email or phone to setup an appointment for a meeting.
