We're not intimidating at all," said Erlenwein...

Visiting Rabbinical Students Tour South Dakota
Capital Journal - SD,Monday, August 22, 2016
...Brook said that in an earlier stop at Mount Rushmore, they met a California tourist who was in his 60s. He had never had a bar mitzvah — a coming-of-age ceremony held close to a youngster’s 13th birthday. So they quickly had him put on tefillin — small boxes that contain the sacred scrolls and are worn during prayer — and did a quick ceremony. All three proudly posed for a picture, with the four heads in the background. “He actually told us, when we met him. He said, ‘I really needed that.’” Alperowitz said...

Traveling Rabbis Find Fellowship in Mat-Su
Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman - AK,Sunday, August 21, 2016
...Their most memorable experience came while knocking on random doors around Big Lake. They could hear from the inside, “There’s a couple of guys with yarmulkes on out there.” A woman answered the door and told them her brother was Jewish, but was suffering from terminal cancer and wasn’t feeling well. They got to talking to the ailing man, and eventually asked him whether he’d ever had his bar mitzvah. He said he hadn’t and they asked if the man they estimated to be in his mid-sixties, connected to a feeding tube would like to. They pulled out a teffillin, a small black box connected to black leather straps that signify a Jewish man’s connection to God...

Shaloh House Rabbi Feels Blessed for 3 Decades in Stoughton
Wicked Local Stoughton - MA,Friday, August 19, 2016
It really began when he was just a teenager. In fact, it didn’t even begin with him, but with his father. For three decades now, Rabbi Mendel Gurkow has been the driving force behind Shaloh House, a pre-school, Hebrew school and synagogue nestled within a condo complex just off Route 27 in Stoughton. But it wasn’t Mendel Gurkow, but his father, Rabbi Moiche Gurkow, who began Shaloh House as a modest pre-school when his son was just a teen in 1978...

Shabbat Destination to Open in West Orange
New Jersey Jewish News,Wednesday, August 17, 2016
...The Klars have hopes that Shabbat House will reach across the denominations, from unaffiliated to Orthodox. In fact, the concept of Shabbat House solidified for the couple after they participated in the Shabbat Project, an attempt to have Jews across the world and the denominational spectrum observe Shabbat together on one particular day each year. West Orange Orthodox and liberal congregations have collaborated in participating in the project over the last two years. “I saw what happened at the Shabbat Project, and I could not believe how much it pulled the community together,” said Rabbi Klar...
