Sep 27, 2004 — Students and alumni of Yeshiva University and its Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary (RIETS), will enrich the holiday celebrations of Shemini Atseret and Simhat Torah in more than 65 Jewish communities.
As part of the annual Blanche Schreiber Torah Tours, groups of four to eight men and women will visit Orthodox congregations across North America to infuse ruach (Jewish spirit and passion) into the holiday celebrations.
This year, more than 400 students and alumni have chosen to spend the holidays away from their families to sing, dance, and share Torah ideas with members of other Jewish communities from Portland, OR, to Springfield, MA. They will also host activities for youth and offer Torah learning sessions on timely Jewish topics.
Sponsored by RIETS’ Max Stern Division of Communal Services (MSDCS), the tours are organized by Robert Shur. For more information, contact Mr. Shur at 212-960-5400 ext. 6013.
