Shabbos Nacham
Friday, August 16–Saturday, August 17

For more than a decade, Rabbi Yosef Friedman was the rabbi of B’nai Israel Congregation, shaping the community and its Torah institutions into the vibrant organizations they are today. He returns for an inspiring and uplifting Shabbos Nachamu as B’nai Israel’s Scholar-in-Residence.

Since leaving Norfolk, Rabbi Friedman completed law school and served as a chaplain for the Air National Guard. Today, he is the spiritual leader of the DAT community in Denver, Col.

Rabbi Friedman will speak on Friday, August 16 at B’nai Israel Congregation and again at an Oneg Shabbat in Ghent. He will address the congregation and give the Drasha on Shabbos morning.

During Shabbos afternoon, Rabbi Friedman will address the congregation and guests at 5 pm with the topic, ‘Is Prayer Ever Futile?” After Shabbos, music and a Kumzitz style Malva Malka is planned.

The community is invited to all of these events. For more information or a schedule, contact Bnai Israel Congregation at 757‑627-7358 or office@bnaiisrael.org or Shira Itzhak at shiralowitzhak@gmail.com.
