Rabbi Elie Karfunkel


Dear Mark, When Arthur Zilbert called to tell me that you had purchased the Torahs from Glace Bay, I was elated. We had discussed that one of the Torahs would find her way into our Aron Kodesh. Being that my first posi0on as a Rabbi was at Beth Zion in Oshawa, I had an inkling of the magic of a small town Jewish community. However, not all small towns are created equal. A collec0on of dedicated, knowledgeable, and selfless people, turned Glace Bay into one the most iconic Jewish towns in North America. If one would open up a map of the world, one would see big stars like New York, Paris and Moscow. I have a hunch that when Hashem opens his map in heaven there is a big fat star next to Glace Bay, Nova Sco0a. I am so excited that you have purchased the Torahs and put them in our Shul. But I'm even more excited that the values of Glace Bay have come to the Forest Hill Jewish Centre. Mark, Yasher Koach! Good Shabbos, Stay Jewish, Be Jewish, Live Jewish Update this content.
