Rav Chaim Shmuelevitz, the Mirrer Rosh Yeshiva, once stood before a Holocaust survivor, a living testament to the atrocities of the past. "How did you hold out?" he asked. "How did you find the strength to not give up?" 


The survivor replied, "In the camps, we were stripped of everything. We were denied the ability to fulfill any Mitzvos. Lulav, Sukkah, Chanukah, all were beyond our reach. But there was one Mitzvah we clung to, even at the cost of our lives. At night, we’d leave the barracks to perform it, determined to press on.”


Update from the Search Committee

Dear Congregants,

The Ahavas Sholom search committee is excited to announce the details for our upcoming weekends with our Rabbinic candidates. There will be a variety of opportunities to meet them and their families, to interact with them, and to consider their candidacy as our next Rabbi. 


On February 3rd, Rabbi Shmuel Lemann will be joining us in Columbus. His wife, Sarah, is expecting their 3rd child imminently, and while she will be unable to join him for the trip, we will have opportunities for you to meet her via zoom. We wish them a Besha'a Tova at this exciting time. 


On February 9th, we will welcome Rabbi Sammy Bergman and his family to Columbus, and on the weekend of February 17th, we will welcome Rabbi Shlomo Eisenberg, and his wife Liba for his probeh weekend.


The Rabbis will attend Ahavas Sholom minyanim while they are in town and will visit our schools and other institutions to get a better feel for the community. Please make every effort to attend shul on Shabbat mornings, where each candidate will deliver the Shabbos drasha. 


There will also be an interactive shiur given by Shalosh Seudos on all three shabbosim, and special Shabbos women’s programs on February 11 and 18. Additionally, we invite all shul members to join us for davening followed by brunch, on Sunday mornings (2/5, 2/12 and 2/19) when congregants will have the opportunity to engage in a Q & A session with the Rabbanim. Babysitting will be provided at the shul.


Thank you for your continued patience as we endeavor to bring our search process to a successful end. More details regarding the voting process are forthcoming. 


Shabbat shalom.
