  • Rabbi among top 10 for CNN's hero of the year

    During the 2012 Channukah season, one of the speakers at Rabbi Galperin's community menorah lighting was the founder of Kids Kicking Cancer.  I just came across an article in the Jewish Tribune about Rabbi Goldberg being a finalist for CNN's hero of the year.  I am reproducing the article here.

    inShare

    Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg started Kids Kicking Cancer and has been chosen as one of 10 finalists in this year’s CNN Hero of 2014. Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg started Kids Kicking Cancer and has been chosen as one of 10 finalists in this year’s CNN Hero of 2014.

    One day, Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg came upon a child screaming in hospital during a chemotherapy session and spontaneously stepped in to try to help. Extemporizing, Rabbi Goldberg, a black belt in karate, taught the five-year-old a basic tai chi breathing technique, calming him so that the nurses could begin chemotherapy.

    “I told him that the pain is a message you don’t have to listen to and I showed him how to breathe in this amazing energy and blow out the pain…and that is how Kids Kicking Cancer (KKC) was born,” Goldberg told VosIzNeias.com.

    Goldberg, rabbi emeritus at Young Israel of Southfield, was head counsellor of Camp Simcha at the time, and sadly, would himself lose a daughter to leukemia.

    The non-profit’s website says their mission is “to ease the pain of very sick children while empowering them to heal physically, spiritually and emotionally.”

    Weekly classes merge modern integrative medicine with traditional martial arts. The program also uses Skype and has spread around the world to hospitals in New York, California, Michigan as well as here in Canada, Israel, and even the Vatican Hospital in Italy.

    Rabbi Goldberg is one of 10 finalists (out of thousands of nominations worldwide) eligible to become CNN’s hero of 2014. If you would like to help vote him to the top, visit: http://cnn.it/1pwZrId until Nov. 16.

  • Terror strikes close to home

    Betzalel Folk, a former Windsor resident and friend who still has family in this city, moved back to his native Israel a few years ago.  Today, I received an email that was painful to read.

    You may have read about the recent attack by a Palestinian man who stabbed, then fatally shot a young Israeli man as the man waited for a ride?  That young man was the son of Betzalel's cousin.  That young man left behind a grieving wife and five children.

    What had been an impersonal story about yet another victim of terrorism suddenly came to life - it became personal.

    On behalf of our congregation, I wish to extend my condolences to Betzalel, and his cousin's family.

  • French swimmer protests with a silent tattoo

    French swimmer stuns Olympic Games with a silent tattoo

    The IOC’s refusal to permit a minute’s silence for victims of the Munich terror attack 40 years ago has already provoked a protest from the Italian team, who staged a minute’s solidarity silence outside the Israeli team’s quarters.

    Now a French swimmer has found another method of commemoration. Fabien Gilot, a member of the gold medal-winning 4 x 100 team raised his arm in triumph to reveal a tattoo in Hebrew reading: אני כלום בלעדיהם -in English: I am nothing without them.

  • Boker Tov

    Regular visitors to this website will know that there's a feature ("Rabbi on Radio") that I like to update every week.  Just around Pesach, that feature was no longer being updated.  I stopped updating the column because I thought the show had stopped airing.  Initially, I figured it was on break between Pesach and Shavuot, but when Shavuot came and went, and the show still was not appearing on the CJAM website, I assumed it had ended.

    Long story short, the show had not ended.  The CJAM website had undergone some changes, and the location for the show archives changed.  Nobody told me, despite repeated questioning, and I was unable to locate the archive on my own.

    Today, with the help of the host of the Boker Tov radio program, I located the new archive location and I'll be spending considerable energy downloading, editing, and uploading the Rabbi's missing interviews to the synagogue website.

    To those of you who listen to these recordings, it will be like a kid in a candy store for the next few days - listening to all those missing interviews.

    What are we going to do next year?

    Following a first-ever lighting of a giant menorah at the Devonshire Mall two years ago, and last year's follow-up of a menorah built from cans of food for the unemployed centre's food drive, this year's edition featured a menorah made from lego pieces which were donated to the children's ward at Metropolitan Hospital.

    Below is just one picture, depicting the lighting of the second candle by a group of children and teens who attended the December 21st event.  Once we sort through all the amazing photographs taken at the event, we'll update our online photo gallery.

    Here we are, just coming off the High Holidays, and for some reason, I feel a bit depressed.  I got this cartoon in an email today, and it tickled my funny bone so much, I had to put it online.  I searched for the artist and found Bruce MacKinnon, illustrator with the Chronicle Herald in Halifax.  The comments below the picture are probably attributable to Liam Myers.

  • Come to your census

    It's a bit ironic that this year's Canadian census is taking place during the same time of year when the census of Jews at Mount Sinai was taking place.  This is a reminder that the Canadian Census is NOT OPTIONAL.  You MUST fill out your census form (either the paper form, or the online version).  And, since your census invitation was personalized just for you, the government WILL KNOW if you don't fill it out.  It is a CRIME (really!) not to participate in the census!

    In addition to the standard census, the government sends a National Household Survey (formerly referred to as the "Long Form Census") to one-third of the population of our country.  If you are Jewish and happen to receive one of these Household Surveys, it is very important that you identify yourself as "Jewish".  Census information is kept strictly confidential, so if you're trying to keep your religious affiliation private, you don't need to worry.  But, the social services planned for the Jewish population are, in some measure, dependent on how many Jewish people live in Canada, and it is very critical that every Jewish voice is heard.

    We now return to our regularly scheduled programming....

    There's an election campaign underway in Canada to elect the next government.  I'll leave it to you to research the issues and follow the polls.  What I'd like to know is:  Which party do you think would be the best for Jews and Israel?

    The election is May 2nd, after which point this short-term poll will be mothballed.

  • What if Moses had Facebook

    The people at aish.com have come up with a tongue-in-cheek analysis of how things would have been different if Moses lived in modern times and the events leading to the exodus from Egypt were to occur today.

    I struggled with the idea of placing this piece on our website, but hey, we all need a sense of humour.

    You will really need to keep up (there's lots to read, and it comes at you quickly).  When you're ready, just turn up your speakers, and start the video.  Oh, and if you can't see it very well in the small box, just click the FULL SCREEN icon (at the lower right of the video) and watch the movie full size...

     

  • Time to sell the chometz

    Do any of you remember that old commercial for Dunkin' Donuts, where the store manager says "Time to make the donuts..."?

    Well, it's "Time to sell the chometz".  This year, you need to have your requests submitted by April 14th if you want Rabbi Galperin to arrange for the disposal in time for the holiday.

    Just click on the "Authorization to Sell Chometz" on the main menu, and fill out the permission form.  Your completed form will be sent to the rabbi, and he will contact you to arrange for the disposal.  It's much quicker (and cheaper) than filling out a form and sending it by mail.  So, what are you waiting for?
