Homepage HTML Version Forward Rav Nati Nettan Adler ZT”L Baruch Dayan HaEmes. Monday, 17 Cheshvan 5778, 6-Nov 2017, Rabbi Nati Netta Adler ZT”L passed away at the young age of 44 years old, leaving a wife and ten children (none of whom are yet married). A foundation stone for Ayelet HaShachar, for the past seventeen years, Rav Adler ZT”L almost singlehandedly built AH’s community in Tivon. We are silenced and bowed in our sorrow. The Jewish world has lost a diamond. He was the epitome of a true Oved Hashem (a servant of G-d), a tremendous Talmud scholar, humble and modest to a fault. ). One morning after he had just returned from Shacharis he received a telephone call informing him of the fatal diagnosis. After the conversation, he stood up and said “Baruch Dayan HaEmes,” took his jacket, briefcase and went to the Kollel to teach. Throughout the illness, not once did he complain. He always had a smile and kind word for everyone. He taught with the greatest passion until the end of his life. AH is now an orphan without a father. םוירושלי המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון .עוד לדאבה תוסיפו ולא May Hashem comfort his family among the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim and may they know no more sorrow. May Rav Adler ZT”L continue to be our מליץ יושר “melitz yoshar.” Tishrei-Could Hardly Catch Our Breath! Remember we used to ask “what did you do during summer vacation”? Now it’s what did AH do during Tishrei? AH celebrated 27 minyanim on Rosh Hashanah and 56 minyanim on Yom Kippur. We even had the honor to celebrate a Bar Mitzvah on Yom Kippur. On Chol HaMoed Succos AH sponsored 32 Simchas Beis Shoevah and we held a special davening in Modiin, dedicated Beis Medrash in the name Shlomo Baruch and Chaya Kest from Los Angeles, the parents of Michael Kest from Los Angeles. We also held over 30 Simchas Torah minyanim where we gave Aliyot HaTorah to boys/men from ages 13 to age 86! Also on Chol HaMoed Together with the Chief Ashkenazic Rabbi, Rav Dovid Lau we were privileged to visit many Kibbutzim on the border with Gaza. Finally, we were invited to visit, speak and learn with two of several Kibbutzim’s central high school: Ein Absor and Yad Mordechai. Schmitta Why Did a Farmer Demolish His Entire Watermelon Crop? Under the guidance and supervision of HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky, Schlit’a we have continued teaching the laws of Shmitta to Israeli farmers specifically focusing on the negative commandment, Kilayim (forbidden mixtures). In the case of agriculture: the prohibition extends to not planting different types of plant species together. We have emphasized this important mitzvah because most farmers in Israel not aware it. One of the farmers who participated in these seminars upon checking his 2000 dunams/494 acres of watermelons, he discovered Kilayim. Thereupon, he demolished his entire crop—that was his entire livelihood. He is the true “Ish Gibor Chayil” a spiritual. hero. AH to the rescue after Palestinians Destroy Jewish Farm Another one of the farmers who was part of the Shmitta seminars and our Chavruta project, kept Shmittah meticulously. His farm sits at the outskirts of Hevron. On Bais Cheshvan, 70 Palestinians stole his entire crop, destroyed the hot houses and all the pipes carrying water into the farm and hot houses. They laid waste to the entire farm. Apparently during that time the farmer was not on the farm, and so he only discovered it upon his return 48 hours later. Thereafter, police located the produce in a nearby Arab Market and managed to round up and arrest all 70 Palestinians. But, the farmer is financially devastated. Now, AH chevrusos are raising funds to the farmer help him get back on his feet. SAVE THE DATES: (1) Rosh Chodesh Kislev and (2) Rosh Chodesh Teves!
