1) ספר תורה Le'ilui Nishhmas Danny Verdoner ZL

3 weeks ago, our dear friend Danny Verdoner passed away. This was a tremendous shock and caused much sorrow to all of the Kehilloh members. The Kehilloh members at present and those who have moved to other places in the country all came to the Levayoh on מוצאי שבת לך לך. Harav Neimann (Rav of the Ramot neighborhood) spoke first, followed by Moreinu Harav Gans Shlito, then Harav Hamburger spoke, Harav De-Hass, and last spoke Danny's brother, Eddo Verdoner. The Hespeidim given by Rav Gans and Rav Hamburger (in Hebrew) can be seen in our forum at this link.

Danny's family is arranging a ספר תורה to be written by Harav Don Ison Le'ilui Nishmas Danny ZL, which will be used in KAYJ, and will be a continuation to Danny's life, which was dedicated to תורה and מסורה.

2) "Nusach of the Netherlands" project in appreciation of Danny Verdoner ZL

Danny ZL cared very much about the Dutch minhogim and melodies, and many of the Dutch melodies were brought in to KAYJ with his help. In order to appreciate this, and to set aside the many Dutch melodies which were brought into KAYJ, we decided to open a separate section in the Nusach Project called "Nusach of the Netherlands", in which all of the Dutch melodies sung in KAYJ will be found together.

This is a reminder to anyone who took upon himself to learn משניות, to finish by the 11th of Kislev.

3) KAYJ set to mark ninth Anniversary on Parashas Vayishlach

On a more uplifting note - in two weeks time, Shabbos Parashas Vayishlach (16th of Kislev, Dec. 13) will mark the 9th year anniversary of KAYJ. Rav Binyomin Shlomo Hamburger will attend this very special Shabbos in Jerusalem, and will speak and be available for questions and comments. Rav Hamburger in the past has expressed his strong support for KAYJ and has called it one of the greatest successes in the modern-day restoration of Minhag Ashkenaz.
