According to Rabbi Ephraim Epstein, rabbi of Congregation Sons of Israel, “Every generation faces its own unique challenges. In 5771 /2010, one of the primary challenges we are up against is building and fortifying strong Jewish homes that will not only weather the myriad of powerful external forces that exist, but thrive as well. The Torah provides a wealth of rich insights how to bolster one’s home with joy, love and harmony in good times and tougher times. Rabbi Twerski is uniquely qualified to address this timely matter and to provide vital wisdom and inspiration to properly arm Jewish families today. The Vaad Harabbonim of Cherry Hill and the Cherry Hill community is honored to work together with the OU and host Rabbi Twerski for this important event.”
Frank Buchweitz, Director of the OU Department of Community Services, declared, “There are so many challenges facing our families and our homes, whether they be external influences, time together, financial unrest within this economy, or the high cost of tuitions, that we must pull together and communicate important values that secure and fortify our Jewish homes and lifestyle.”
The event is produced in conjunction with the Vaad Ha’Rabanim of Greater Cherry Hill. It is co-sponsored by Congregation Sons of Israel, Chabad of Camden and Burlington Counties, Cherry Hill Community Kollel, Torah Links of Cherry Hills, The Politz Day School, Mesivta Beis Dovid, Congregation Keter Torah and Young Israel of Cherry Hill.
