Torah Treasure Presents: Parsha Time - Vayerah

A fun sing along DVD that makes learning the Parsha a joy for kids and parents alike! When deciding what content to create next, Producer Chaim Hershkowitz knew that it would have to be about the Parshios. “I knew it was time to create something that was new, fresh and upbeat.” With that goal, Chaim’s first choice was Chanaleh Fellig-Harrel; who has written songs for him in the past. He asked her to come up with new songs for each Parsha.

“What she did, was bring every Parsha to life, with 12 original and amazing songs” Each scene brings a colorful array of props, backgrounds and the realistic costumes to give the kids a feeling of what went on in that time. With the vivid images and amazing lyrics in the songs, the children will literally sing their way through each Parsha, essentially covering thousands of years of History- in minutes! “We also got very lucky, with the very talented YBC soloist Nati Broyde singing and starring in this Parsha Time DVD.”

For the first time ever, Parsha Time includes a separate Karaoke Version so that the kids will be able to sing along with their favorite songs! Although it was released a week ago, the feedback has been tremendously positive. One parent commented “Every Friday since it came out, when I ask my children which video they want to watch, they say Parsha Time because they love the songs and video so much.”

Parsha Time can be ordered on Amazon Nigun music or at your local Judaica store.

Measles Outbreak in Williamsburg, Rockland County

Six children below the age of 5 were diagnosed with measles in Brooklyn, health officials said Wednesday.

The initial case started after a child traveled to Brooklyn from Israel, where a large outbreak is occurring.

Five of the children were not vaccinated.

“Although measles is preventable, too many families are choosing to not vaccinate or delay vaccination, putting their children and other children at risk” said Acting Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot. “It is also important to make sure the entire family is protected before traveling internationally, because outbreaks of measles are occurring in Israel and throughout Europe. If your child develops a fever and rash, contact their health care provider and keep your children home from school or daycare.”

There are also 11 confirmed measles cases in Rockland County.

Anyone who suspects an exposure is urged to call a health care provider before going to a medical office or emergency department.

Measles symptoms include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes. It can cause serious complications such as pneumonia and encephalitis (swelling of the brain). Measles infection in a pregnant woman can lead to miscarriage, premature birth or a low-birth-weight baby. Measles is easily spread through the air when someone coughs or sneezes. People can also get sick when they come in contact with mucus or saliva from an infected person.

Mosdos Kever Rachel Imeinu

To Donate Click Here

For thousands of years, Jews have unburdened their hearts to Rachel Imeinu - and had their prayers answerd.

The Barren were blessed with children,
The sick were cured,
The single found shiduchim
And the broken-hearted found solace and peace.

In late 2000 and often during 2001 and early 2002, there were shooting incidents near the tomb that closed the site for much of that time, once again bringing Jewish visitation to a trickle.

The tomb was reopened in about 2003, and a security wall was constructed around its periphery, but few at first made the journey.

Then a Jewish Israeli couple, Rabbi Moshe M. and Mrs. Bluma Kluger, personally intervened. They founded Rachel's Tomb Institute (Mosdos Kever Rachel), a group consisting of the Klugers, and a few volunteers, that has facilitated tens of thousands of visits to the tomb.

Rabbi Kluger engaged in a fund-raising campaign and also took out personal loans to fund five private, bullet-proof buses per weekday that make stops throughout Jerusalem for those wanting to pray at the tomb.

The buses have been running since!, and bring in approximately 100,000 visitors each year. The Israeli public-transportation system restarted service to the area, but many feel more comfortable in bullet-proof busing. (NOTE: Because of today's security improvement, bullet proof buses are no longer needed)

Mosdos Kever Rachel also renewed learning at Rachel's Tomb by helping to establish a Yeshiva, which offers daily classes and leads prayer services in the afternoons and evenings.

Cafe Owner Scares off Burglar While Away

A cafe owner scared off a burglar while on holiday 4,000 miles away - by screaming through a CCTV device on his phone.

Jamie Foster, 34, was on a coach on his way to the airport in the Dominican Republic when he terrified the raider by screaming at his mobile screen. The businessman watched aghast from another continent as the cameras were activated in his cafe and he saw the intruder rifling through the till. But his cries startled the criminal, causing him to flee the Lillies Cafe in Wickford, Essex, with £50 in his hand.

Peretz Chein - Debut Single - Baruch Hashem - Lyric Video

In 2017 Peretz suffered a sudden spinal cord injury.

After an emergency surgery he remained partially paralyzed. The Doctors’ prognosis was “Go home and pray”.  While undergoing rigorous rehabilitation, Peretz was moved to release this song.

Under the circumstance a ballad may have made more sense. Yet Peretz felt drawn to more upbeat notes and chose "Boruch Hashem", a song of praise and gratitude. 

Today, while still in the process of healing, Peretz is happy to be performing again. A rising star in the world of Jewish music, he can be seen performing at weddings and events. So enjoy "Boruch Hashem"! And, whether you begin listening to the song while sitting or standing... be prepared to end up dancing!

Yahrzeit Of Rav Meir Shapiro - Founder of Daf Yomi

Rav Yehuda Meir Shapiro, Rav of Lublin, revolutionized Klal Yisroel’s limud haTorah.

For the budding talmid chacham, he created the Chachmei Lublin Yeshiva, the first yeshiva in Poland to provide bachurim with physical as well as spiritual nourishment, forming Am Yisroel’s next generation of gedolei haTorah.

But for Klal Yisroel as a whole, he also developed a revolutionary program that has turned thousands of simple Jews into talmidei chachamim knowledgeable in all of Shas: the Daf Hayomi.

Rav Yehuda Meir Shapiro was born on March 3, 1887, in the city of Shatz, Romania. Reb Meir’s father, Reb Yaakov Shimshon, was a prominent talmid chacham who once served as the Rav and Av Beis Din of Shatz.

Reb Meir was descended from a long line of renowned Rebbes. Reb Yaakov Shimon was a great-grandson of the well-known chassidic rebbe Reb Pinchas of Koretz. Reb Meir’s mother, Rebbetzin Margulya, was a daughter of the Manestritcher Rebbe, Reb Shmuel Shorr, who himself was a direct descendant of two famous halachic commentators, the Bach and the Taz.

Oh Beer!

A truck driver has been caught on camera spilling an entire truckload of beer crates onto the road while trying to make a three-point-turn during a delivery in Cape Town, South Africa.

Video footage shows the trucker attempting to reverse a lorry marked with a banner reading 'REGRET NOTHING' down the side.

As he maneuvers the lorry across the road, the load starts to shift, and soon the tarmac is covered in crates, bottles and beer.

The video shows the driver continuing to move his vehicle, despite beer crates spilling out onto the road. Withing seconds, the entire trailer is seen tilting sharply and half his load crashes into the road.

Many of the beer bottles from South African Breweries smashes into a frothy foaming sea of ale blocking the road and leaving the driver suffering a very unhappy hour.

It is believed that between 150 and 200 crates of beer fell out of the beer lorry.
