Shavuot at CBS - Ice Cream Is Coming

Dear Friends!
Non other literary or historical artifact affects the life of mankind, as much, as our holy Torah. Although, there is only one nation whose existence is determined by It - us, Jewish People. Our perception of the Torah is radically different from the universal. The Torah is not a artifact to us. If it were such, our people would have long taken their place of honor in the Louvre, the Hermitage, the London National Gallery, etc, as other nations of old. We would have been assigned several beautifully decorated halls full of artifacts related to once existed Jewish culture.
Torah for us is a lifestyle expressed in all the details of our existence: from birth to death, from falling asleep to awakening, from awakening to falling a sleep.
The beginning of the formation of the Jewish way of life occurred more than three millennia ago on Mount Sinai on a day that is celebrated as the Holiday of Shavuot - the Festival of the recieving of the Torah. Since then, in every generation, Torah has lived as the stellar of our existence. You and I are an integral part of the Jewish eternity chain through the Torah.
I want to invite you to the celebration of Shavuot - the Holiday of the Torah on June 4-6, to our Congregation Beth Shalom 2710 Ave X.
See the detailed schedule bellow.
Suggested participation in the expenses of the holiday - $15 per person. Children - free.
Dear friends, the activities of our community take place on a charitable basis. We will welcome your contribution to the maintenance of our activities.
Chag Shavuot Sameach
Rabbi Asher Altshul.

33rd Night. Jazz, Bourbon and BBQ

Dear friends!
The 18th day of Iyar (April 29-30 2021) we count the 33rd day of Omer. The event that occurred on that day couldn’t be called a joyful occasion. The great Torah scholar and a saint Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai (RASHBI) returned his soul to the Creator almost two millennia ago. However, he requested that this day will be celebrated by the Jewish people, as a joyful Holiday.
Since then we celebrate the LaG (33) BaOmer with light, music and parties.
RASHBI is the author of the most important Kabbalistic book - Zohar. Literally means “Illumination”. According the tradition the day of RASHBI’s soul departure he revealed the deepest secrets o the Jewish mystiques and the world was illuminated with the Holy light. Following his request we celebrate the LaG (33) BaOmer with light, music and parties.
I would like to invite you to light the LaG BaOmer candles together at our Synagogue Beth Shalom 2710 Ave X on Thursday April 29 7:30PM. And celebrate the 33rd night with world renewed musician Yakov Maimom and his Jazz band. The concert will be accompanied with BBQ, Bourbon tasting bar and great company at our congregation. Please, see the tickets information bellow.
Best regards,
Rabbi Asher Altshul.

Дорогие Друзья!
Восемнадцатого Ияра (29-30 Апреля 2021) на 33-й день счета Омера, произошло событие, которое, на первый взгляд, ни как нельзя назвать радостным: величайший праведник и мудрец Торы, рабби Шимон бар Йохай (сокращенно РАШБИ), покинул этот мир. Однако, он завещал, чтобы эта дата отмечалась евреями с весельем и сердечным ликованием, так, словно к ним пришла хорошая весть.
РАШБИ известен как автор основополагающей книги Каббалы, "Зоhар". "Зоhар" - на иврите означает свет. По традиции в день ухода из нашего мира РАШБИ открыл своим ученикам самые скрытые тайны бытия и в момент его смерти весь мир наполнился светом. Годовщина какого-либо события в жизни праведника обладает чудесным свойством вновь транслировать в наш мир тот свет и ту мудрость, которые раскрывались в тот день. 
В Лаг Баомер (33-й день Омера), а именно так называется грядущий праздник, мы зажигаем свечи или жжем костры в память о том свете который принес РАШБИ в этот день много лет назад, но который светит нам и сегодня.
Приглашаю вас зажечь свечи Лаг Баомера у нас в Синагоге Беит Шалом 2710 Ave. Х вечером в Четверг, 29 Апреля в 7:30PM. и отпраздновать 33-ю ночь вместе с международно известным музыкантом Яковом Маймоном и его Джазовым ансамблем. В сопровождение барбекью, Бурбона и хорошей еврейской компании. 
Раввин Ашер Альтшуль
