Zayin Adar is the yahrtzeit of Moshe Rabeinu and has traditionally been a time where communities gather to raise awareness of the local chevra kadisha. Last year, our Elizabeth/Hillside community introduced the Chesed Shel Emes Fund of Greater Elizabeth. Since that time, our lives have changed dramatically. Our community has suffered terribly with the loss of many friends and family. Our chevra, made of dedicated men and women , had to make tough decisions regarding proper Kavod HaMes while also keeping each other safe. Although we may not safely be able to all come together in person, it is still important to show our sense of community.
This year we will be having our annual Zayin Adar event on Saturday night February 20, 2021 at 8:00 PM via Zoom. We will be welcoming Dr. David Pelcovitz, the Gwendolyn & Joseph Straus Chair in Jewish Education and Professor at Yeshiva University. He will speak about: Kavod Hamays During Covid: Jewish and Psychological Perspectives on Coping with Loss in Unprecedented Times.
