ANNOUNCEMENT: At 4 PM on Thursday 9/30 (1st day of Shmini Atzeres) the one and only TEMIMA SHULMAN will be giving a shiur for women in Simcha Esther's memory! Location: The home of Dr. and Mrs. Gejerman, 69 the Circle, Passaic, NJ. Hope you can make it.
THANK YOU: To Alisa Adler, ASG Realty and Aish HaTorah for sponsoring a shalosh seudos in my sukkah in memory of Simcha Esther. Thirty or so visiting Aishniks participated and we were zoche to inspiring zemiros, words of Torah from Rabbi Harris, and divrei bracha from Alisa A. and Ella K.
Blessing everyone with a piska tova on Hoshana Raba and awesome joy and uplift on Shmini Atzeres, the private after-party, a Day so high it needs no-thing. May we merit to fully receive the ohr mimalei kol olmin (the Light that Fills All Worlds) and may it truly be a Day on which we come to know: Ain Od Milvado (there is nothing but God).

This Shabbos (9/18) is Yom Kippur which is also Simcha Esther (zichrona livracha)'s first yahrtzeit.
Those of you who are saying kaddish please have her in mind.
Also: Tehillim are being arranged for the Yahrtzeit on Yom Kippur. We would like to complete the entire sefer tehillim with your help. Those who were previously part of the Tehillim group during her illness please let us know if you are able to say their portion on Yom Kippur and also anyone else who would like to participate please contact Reva at firstname.lastname@example.org
Blessing everyone with G'mar Chatima Tova - may we all be blessed and sealed for a year of true Life!
Please also note: in Simcha Esther's honor and memory I have started a g'mach (Free Loan Society) which according to tradition is one of the best ways to provide merit and elevation to the souls of the departed. Money given to a g'mach (as opposed to other charities) is used over and over garnering compound merits for you the donor as well as the honoree.
If you would like to contribute, please send a check made out to:
and write: Gmach Zichron Simcha Esther in the memo line.
