A Message From Rabbi Hollander

Our shul has been in existence since 1989.  We service the Del Cerro  and San Carlos Jewish communities.  We provide many with the  opportunity to fulfill their spiritual needs and to come closer to the  service of G-d whether it be through minyanim, classes or simply  being there when people need us.

 However, we must also look forward and reach out and touch the  lives of so many more people.  Rabbi Frand often points out that  Ya’akov, our forefather, saw a vision of the Angels climbing up and  down on a ladder.  Why did the vision include a ladder?  He  answered that a ladder wasn’t made to be stood on.  Either you go  up or go down on it, so too in Judaism.  We can never be satisfied  with our accomplishments and rest on our laurels.  We must  constantly strive to move forward.

- Rabbi Chaim Hollander
