Jewish Pride – Day camp kids learn about their heritage

By Michael Cronk – The Sunnyvale Sun

Like any group of youngsters their age, the children at Camp Gan Israel were out to have a good time. And they did.

“We want to give them a good time,” said counselor Mussi Levin, 17.

A Melava Malkah with Talmidim HaShluchim

Perhaps the most impressive event of a spectacular weekend took place Motzoei Shabbos after many hours of intense farbrenging. Rabbi Shloime Zarchi’s inspirational words carried over to a stirring Melave Malke hosted in the Mirador Resort. Rabbi Avraham Korf was dramatically introduced by emcee Meir Simcha Rubashkin Shliach to the Yeshiva in Morristown N.J., who continued to humor and entertain throughout the evening. As the Talmidim HaShluchim partook in the delicious dinner, Rabbi Yosef Denburg Shliach to Coral Springs Florida, followed by Rabbi Shai Amar Shliach to Golden Beach Florida, captivated the Shluchim telling compelling stories and thought provoking ideas.

Another Daytime Burglary in Crown Heights

The incident took place this past Wednesday at around 3:30 in the afternoon, one of the residents of the house on Carroll St between Schenectady and Utica entered the house and encountered the thief who pulled a knife on him and fled out the back door through the kitchen.

He described the perp as a Male Black around the age of 15 or 16 with a medium build. He had already been through the house and had stuffed various items in his backpack. The items ranged from silver candlesticks that were on the dining room table, wallets and some jewelry. The perp knew what he was looking for avoiding the things that weren’t of significant value, such as a knockoff watch and some real looking jewelry.
