We all know that HaShem has His protective hand over us.

In these difficult times, He wants us 

to rely on Him but also partner with Him

as we protect our congregation.

We thank Sal, our security guard, for his

good advice to enhance safety.


Mazel Tov to Doug Verill and Ilene Diamond

on tying the knot yesterday evening.

They are coming from Palmdale.

Ilene started out at Aviv Judea 40 years ago

while we were meeting in the Davis family living room in Norwalk.

We all wish them a happy life together 

filled with Yeshua their Messiah.
