Ygal breaking the glass

Fifteen years ago, a 13 year old Ygal stood and read from the Torah scroll before the members of the newly founded congregation of Tents of Mercy and declared His faith in the God of Israel on the occasion of his Bar-mitzvah. Today Ygal is a member of the young adults leadership team, works as our “media man” and runs a small computer business. That evening in February our congregation rejoiced as Ygal and his bride, Lilya, celebrated the official beginning of their new life together. It has been a privilege to watch these two young people grow in faith and maturity in our midst.

In the time honored tradition of Papa Moshe (Morrison), Tents of Mercy once again celebrated the holiday of Purim with a Purim play based on a well known movie/story. This year our talented teens and young adults presented us with an entertaining rendition of Alice in Wonderland…with a twist.

Freely you have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8b). We have been given so much that we are motivated to pass on our blessings, both spiritual and material. It is a joy to do so by contributing to our local community in the form of food baskets during the holidays of Rosh HaShanah and Passover. Putting together 700 bags of food is no small task and this time around we were blessed to receive the packing assistance of volunteers from our sister ministry “Gateways Beyond” in Cyprus as well as members of our congregation who came to help.
