Emek Weekend Programming Unites Fathers and Sons in the Valley Community


This past Shabbos, Parshas Ki Seitzei saw over sixty boys with their fathers sitting and learning in the Teichman Family Beis Midrash. The crowd diligently studied the parsha and were well prepared to win extra raffle tickets when Emek’s Rabbi Tropper asked questions. The excitement continued with raffle prizes and a delicious Kiddush generously sponsored by Rabbi and Mrs. Israel Hirsch.

This community wide Father/Son learning program is off to an outstanding start. The program takes place each Shabbos at 10:45 am and includes learning, Divrei Torah from the boys, stories, prizes and treats. Additionally, there is a monthly Kiddush every Shabbos Mevarchim, the Shabbos that precedes Rosh Chodesh.


Additionally, Emek’s Sunday program began this past Sunday and also looks to be a great success with over thirty students in attendance at the first event. Every Sunday morning fathers and sons now gather from different parts of the valley. They daven together, enjoy a delicious breakfast and enjoy the perfect atmosphere that creates a father/son bonding.

After breakfast the program continues with classes for both students and adults given by Rabbi Shifman, Rabbi Majeski, Rabbi Alt and Rabbi Chaiton. This program is a community event and everyone is welcome.
