Adams Street Team Walks for Rofeh!

FleischmannBenyomin BallGameDespite our small size, The Adams Street Team was near the top of the fund-raisers ranking in last year's Walk for Rofeh.  This year you can put us on top!

Join your friends, and make new ones, as members of the Adams Street Shul participate in the Third Annual Walk for Rofeh, on Sunday, May 10, at the DCR Chestnut Hill Reservoir.  This event is a 5 km (3.1 mile) family-friendly walk to support Rofeh International. 

Rofeh is a great cause!  People from all around the world and throughout the United States come to Boston’s prestigious medical centers for life saving medical treatment.  These patients and their families are stuck far from home, perhaps for a long time, and are feeling vulnerable in a stressful and unfamiliar environment. 

Horowitz Rabbi Naftoli HorowitzRofeh ensures that the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of patients and their families are met with loving kindness, warmth and dignity.  The Rofeh support system includes medical referrals, food, housing, and social services — all at no charge to those stressed with illness and financial pressures.

Rofeh was founded by the previous Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Levi Yitzchok Horowitz; and is now directed by his youngest son, the current Bostoner Rebbe, Rabbi Naftali Yehuda Horowitz.

Now that Purim is over, please consider signing up for the walk.  Help raise money for this great charity that is doing important work right here in Boston. 

You get a really cool Rofeh T-shirt; and this year we may also produce Team Adams Street hats!

Musicians Wanted

KhanukaevMaestroSergey Sergey Khanukaev, our member and accomplished pianist and musical conductor, would like to organize a professional instrumental ensemble of children ages 9 to 16 to perform a variety of musical pieces focused on Jewish themes. 

After a series of rehearsals and preparations he would launch a series of concerts in Boston. This is a highly innovative idea, since there are currently no children's ensembles that are focused primarily on performing the masterpieces of Jewish music. 

Dr. Khanukaev would very much like to discuss his proposal with prospective parents and students.  Please contact him at 617-669-7778 or at to discuss ways in which you might collaborate.

If You Feed Them, They Will Come
Bert Grand at the Shul Centennial Red Sox OutingWe hope you have enjoyed the pleasant socializing each week after Shabbat morning services. Have you ever wondered how the shul manages to provide the kiddush even on weeks when it has not been sponsored? 

The Grand Family Kiddush Fund sponsors the kiddush whenever no one else has.  Even if you cannot sponsor a kiddush on your own, small donations in any amount are always welcome.  Simply designate that your donation is for The Grand Family Kiddush Fund. 

It's a nice way to honor someone, celebrate a simcha, or memorialize a loved one.  You can donate online now.
