The secret of having prayers answered this Yom Kippur

Dear  Friend

What is the secret of having prayers answered this Yom Kippur? 

The story below says it all.

A jeweler in Jerusalem watched as a 9‐year‐old girl strolled back and forth, eying his glass cases.  Finally, she stood before him and said, “I want to buy that bracelet,” pointing it out to him. 

The jeweler took the bracelet out, placed it before her, and said, “My, you have wonderful taste. How  did you happen to pick this one?” The bracelet the girl had selected sold for $3,000. 

“It’s for my older sister,” she answered. “I want to get her something really nice because she takes care of us. Our mother and father are no longer living.” 

The jeweler nodded. “And how much do you have to spend?” 

The girl took out a pouch full of coins. She dumped them on the counter and began to sort as the jeweler watched. “Seven shekels and 80 agorot,” she proudly announced.  

The jeweler exclaimed, “That’s remarkable! That happens to be the price of this bracelet,” even though seven shekels and 80 agorot equates to just over $2. 

With tears in his eyes, the jeweler delicately wrapped the bracelet, handed it to the girl with a big smile and wistfully followed her path out the door and into the street. 

Not long after, the older sister appeared. She strode across the store, thrust the bracelet at the jeweler and said, “Here is your bracelet. I am terribly embarrassed.”

“Why are you embarrassed?” the jeweler gently asked.

“I am sure this bracelet is very expensive,” she responded. “My sister could not possibly have paid you what it is worth.

The jeweler replied, “You could not be more wrong. Your sister paid me with seven shekels, 80 agorot … and a pure heart. Every day people come into my store and buy expensive jewelry for their loved  ones, but they can well afford what they are paying. 

“You see, I am a widower, and from the day my wife died, this is the first time I have felt what love means. Your sister paid me in full.” 

At this time of year, we gather in synagogue to pray to G‐d for a healthy year. A happy year. A fulfilling year. And what is our “payment” to G‐d for these favors we ask? We promise to be kinder, to be more generous, to look deeper into ourselves in search of ways we can more fully realize our  potential and make our world better. 

And are those promises “payment” enough? Because G‐d is merciful and abounding in understanding, the answer is yes. As long as we come before Him with a pure heart.  

Shabbot Shalom,





Friday night Kabbalet Shabbat at Chabad!

While being called to the bima is a great honor on any occasion, High Holiday honors are particularly memorable. We are asking our Shul members to let us know how you might like to be part of the service. We are also suggesting donations for these honors in the hope that you understand the importance of these added contributions, given our very affordable dues and no building fund. These are the suggested amounts. 

Over the course of our Jewish history, the tradition developed to give Tzedaka in multiples of 18, which is the numerical value of the word “Chai”. The reason is because “Chai” means “Life”, and the blessing for the giving of Tzedaka is “Life”, whether in the sense of “Nachas” from our children, health, and prosperity. In this spirit, we’re recommending that contributions for High Holiday honors be made in multiples of 18.

The options over the course of the High Holiday season are:

1) An Aliya to the Torah, $540 – thirty times Chai

2) Raising the Torah (Hagba) or tying the Torah (Gelila), $360 - twenty times Chai 

3) Reading one of 10 English passages from the Machzor, $270 - fifteen times Chai

4) Opening the ark, $180 - ten times Chai.

Please contact Stanley Stein at or click here to reserve your Aliyah.

Runners and Kid Dashers are encouraged to wear costumes to show what they want to be when they grow up.

Parshat Vayelech

The Parshah of Vayelech (“ and he went”) recounts the events of Moses’ last day of earthly life. “I am one hundred and twenty years old today,” he says to the people, “and I can no longer go forth and come in.” He transfers the leadership to Joshua, and writes (or concludes writing) the Torah in a scroll which he entrusts to the Levites for safekeeping in the Ark of the Covenant.

The mitzvah of hak’hel(“ gather”) is given: every seven years, during the festival of Sukkot of the first year of the shemittah cycle, the entire people of Israel—men, women and children—should gather at the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, where the king should read to them from the Torah.

Vayelech concludes with the prediction that the people of Israel will turn away from their covenant with G‑d, causing Him to hide His face from them, but also with the promise that the words of the Torah “ shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their descendants.”

6 Steps to Reach True Forgiveness
Some people never ask for our forgiveness. They don’t show remorse, they don’t seem to care that they’ve hurt us, and they may even demean or belittle us for having been hurt. Why should we forgive them?
Translating Truth
Every translator grapples with two conflicting aims: to faithfully convey the content of the original, and to make it understood, attractive and “natural” in its foreign enclothment. How far to go? The Rebbe sees a precedent in the first Torah scroll written by Moses.
