Subject: Rabbi can visit you this summer free of charge

Dear Rabbi Katz

Thank you for such a Mitzvah of helping jews world wide have some contact with a Rabbi.
I think our new Rabbi for Korea will be here this summer, so we should be preparing for his arrival.
meantime again my prayers and thoughts that you and Aleph Instiute should continue your work doing great Deeds for us all over the world

as always
Be Well

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race”

Dear Chaplain, Lay Leader or Jewish member of the United States Armed Forces,

During the summer months many young Rabbis from Merkos L'Inyonei Chinuch and the Aleph Institute volunteer their time to travel around the country and around the world to meet Jewish men and women that do not live in large active Jewish communities. The purpose of these visits is to enable those separated from larger Jewish communities to interact with a Rabbi, ask questions or share warm Jewish experiences. Many of these young rabbis have contacted Aleph and offered to visit Jewish military personnel and their families throughout the United States  and throughout the world. Unless you are a in a combat zone, chances are there are rabbis coming to your neck of the woods. Almost every single country is visited, big or small.  Many of these Rabbis will be traveling to your area regardless. If you are interested in having one of these rabbis visit you , your family or your entire Jewish military community at your base, post or installation, Please email us at military@aleph-institute.org .

We may also be able to arrange for a Rabbi  to  come in and give a lecture on a specific Jewish topic to groups of military  personnel and their families. The following is a listing of some of the subjects you may want to  hear about :

          "Separation of Church and State”
                   One of the most famous debates throughout history? Does it make sense to have morals and ethics without belief ?
          Woman's role in Judaism - Are women equal to men in Judaism?
                   Does it make sense for any religion which preaches love to make any person second class?
          Judaism - on the road to extinction?
                  Is Judaism propelling forward or is it imploding with its constant clinging to the past? Why does Judaism cling to the past? How can an old age religion survive and grow in a modern world?
          What is life? & its purpose?
                    What were we created for? Are we here to enjoy our time and make life one big party? Is there a specific reason for each and every one of us to be here ? If yes, what is our specific job?

On this Memorial Day we want to  remember and honor all those who  gave their lives serving our great nation.
