Join the Shapell's weekly online Minchas Asher chabura for men.
The topic of this coming Sunday's chabura is: "The Non-Kohen's Role in Birkat Kohanim."
Rav Elazar Azkari zt"l (composer of "Yedid Nefesh" and author of Sefer Charedim on the 613 mitzvot) says that the non-Kohanim are also included in the mitzva of Birkat Kohanim. What does he mean by that? Rav Asher Weiss shlita, in an article in Minchas Asher Bamidbar that is the basis of this coming Sunday's chabura, discusses the answer to this question, as well as a dispute among Acharonim about what a non-Kohen should do if he is in the middle of Shemoneh Esrei and Birkat Kohanim begins.
The video conference will meet this coming Sunday (13 Sivan, June 16th), 7:15-8:00 pm Israel time (IDT), 5:15-6:00 pm in England (BST), 12:15-1:00 pm in NY (EDT), and 9:15-10:00 am in California (PDT).
To join the chabura please contact Rabbi Eliezer Kwass, eliezerkwass@gmail.com.

WITH A GREAT SENSE OF SADNESS AND LOSS
DARCHE NOAM INSTITUTIONS REGRETS TO INFORM ALL OUR ALUMNI AND FRIENDS OF THE PETIRAH OF
HAGAON HARAV NOSSON KAMENETSKY ZT"L ON SHABBAT, EREV SHAVUOT

Rav Nosson z"l was a true friend of Darche Noam/Shapell's for over four decades. In the early 1980's Rav Nosson z"l served as Rosh Yeshiva for several years until he was asked to return to his original position at Yeshivat ITRI. In the ensuing years Rav Nosson z"l continued to be a mentor and friend to the Hanhalla of the Yeshiva. He spoke frequently at special occasions at the Yeshiva, where his Yom HaAtzmaut derashos especially are fondly remembered, and graced us with his presence at all our major celebratory events.

Rav Nosson's legacy is being continued through the unique connection Darche Noam Institutions has with the next generation of the Kamenetsky family. In the earlier years of Shapell's Rav Noson's son Rav Yosef, yibadel l'chaim tovim, was the pillar of our afternoon bekius program. When Rav Yosef shlit"a decided to accept another position he reassured the hanhalla that his brother Rav Reuven shlit"a would be a most suitable replacement. He was right.

For several decades Rav Nosson's nephew, Rav Yitzchak Shurin shlit"a has served as the Rosh Midrasha of Midreshet Rachel v'Chaya. For all of us, Rabbi Shurin has been a precious conduit to the legacy of his grandfather, Hagaon Hagadol Harav Yaakov Kamenetsky zt"l, father of Rav Nosson z"l.

We mourn Rav Nosson's z"l passing and offer condolences to, yibadlu l'chaim tovim, his Rebbetzin and his sons and daughters and the whole extended Kamenetsky mishpacha.
