26 Sep A Torah-study marathon in Chile
In anticipation of the High Holidays, Jewish communities all over the world immerse themselves in studying, praying and preparations for Rosh Hashanah. Bnei Anousim communities of South America are no exception; in particular, the Bnei Anousim of Chile participated in a special Torah study marathon that lasted for 8 hours.
The program included studies and discussions, together with shared meals and workshops for even the youngest members of the community. The lectures for the adults were delivered by Rabbi Avraham Latapiat, Shavei Israel’s emissary in Chile, and his wife, Rabbanit Esther Miriam Latapiat. Special classes on Hebrew and tefilah (prayer) were also organized.
It was an amazing program and the participants reported feeling energized and spiritually prepared for the High Holidays.
