Rosh Hashana at the Rebbe’s Diamond Daveners – Kol Yakov Yehuda, the junior minyan for boys and girls at the Congregation Levi Yitzchok of Los Angeles, will be welcomed with a new addition.
A brand new paroches curtain that covers the Aron Kodesh containing the Sifrei Torah was unveiled this past Friday by the presidium of the shul – Levi Cohen, Yechezkel Pinson and Mendel Raeburn.
The paroches was dedicated in memory of Chaya Spalter, a young Shlucha and one of the shul’s energetic congregants who tragically passed away this past year at the age of 11.
“Kol Yakov Yehuda cannot start tomorrow without a Chaya,” the shul’s founder Rabbi Mendel Duchman said on Friday during the unavailing in the presence of Chaya’s parents and siblings.
The Spalter family was deeply moved when they were notified that the entire gift –from inception to completion– was handled by the children themselves.
