As one of the most prominent Torah education power couples in the Jewish community, Rabbi Steven Weil, senior managing director at the Orthodox Union, will present an OU Community Weekend together with his wife Rebbetzin Yael Weil, at the Irving Place Minyan in Woodmere from Friday, March 6 through Saturday, March 7, Shabbat Parshat Ki Tisa.
The OU member synagogue is located at 111 Irving Place.
On Friday evening at 8 p.m. there will be an oneg at a private home where Rebbetzin Weil will deliver her presentation on “The New World Order: 100 Years of Sykes-Picot Overturned in 18 Months.”
Shabbat morning, Rabbi Weil will deliver his sermon after the Mussaf service on the topic, “In The Aftermath of the Apocalypse.” Later in the afternoon at a private home Rebbetzin Weil will discuss “How Perfect Must A Woman Be? In Search Of The Real Eishet Chayil (Woman of Valor),” at 4 p.m.
During seudat shlishit, Rabbi Weil will culminate the weekend of inspiration with “The Golden Calf is Alive and Well in the 21st Century.”
Rabbi Ariel Rackovsky said, “Purim is the holiday in which we focus on the plight of Jews as a collective and as individuals, and affirm our commitment to the Torah. Through their actions and advocacy for our causes, Rabbi and Rebbetzin Weil are an embodiment of these Purim values. I can think of no better couple than they to address our congregation the Shabbat after Purim, and keep up the spirit of the day.”
