The Rabbi’s Big Lecture
From BnaiDavid.com, Rav Yosef Kanefsky writes his congregants:
This Shabbat afternoon I’ll be sharing my annual Shabbat Hagadol Drasha at 5:30. This is one the two times during the year when we are able to take an idea, develop it fully, and explore its ramifications for the way we live. It is also our opportunity to discover a (hopefully) new religious perspective with which to enter Pesach. This year’s Drasha is entitled:
Ba’avoor Zeh: Because of This
Why is this People Different?
Of course the Shabbat Hagadol drasha isn’t for everyone. It’s only for folks between the ages of 14 and 25 , 26 and 40, and 41 through 97. Attendance will also be limited only to people who do not have children and to those who do. (Childcare provided for those who do.) So if you meet the criteria, I’ll see you on Shabbat!
