To honor the victims of the Pittsburgh Jewish community, we ask our Southern New Jersey community to participate in our Torah for the Soul: Mishna Nishama program. Through the mitzvah of Torah study, we will honor our brothers and sisters of blessed memory.
In Jewish tradition, the community completes a unit of Torah, Mishnah, or Talmud study in the days following the death of a beloved family member or friend. At its completion, we hold a communal siyyum (Hebrew: סיום) (“completion”) in tribute and honor of the deceased.
We invite you to choose an individual Mishna passage, a chapter, or a tractate (book) of Mishnah, to study in memory of our brothers and sisters from the Tree of Life Congregation.
And on Super Sunday, January 27, at 1 pm at the JCC, we will complete our study together and celebrate with a Seudat Mitzvah, a meal to mark the completion of a commandment.
Light refreshments will be served.
