They said people wouldn’t show up...and you did, overwhelmingly! An overflow crowd of 200+!
They said flights would be cancelled...and they were, but modern technology affords us a suitable substitute to hear words of inspiration from HaRav Uren Reich!
They said it would be dangerously cold...and it was...but nothing a few remote starters, valet parking, hand warmers and a community of hardy souls couldn’t handle!
They said we couldn’t cater an event on a third floor with the elevator frozen...and Prime Deli and crew did a splendid job!
The simple message in all of this is to persevere through life’s obstacles...but on a much, much, deeper level, most of these things weren’t even much of a question. When we have a Divine mission, a Torah to live for, it changes our perspective on everything entirely. We didn’t just persevere, we celebrated together with genuine simcha!
To the point where we can honestly say that while to some all of the above seems impressive, for our community, is it really surprising?!

Thank you so much for coming!
