Young Israel of Toco Hills was selected as one of 70 communities across the country to partner with the Religious Zionists of America and host a scholar in residence to mark the 70th anniversary of the birth of the state of Israel. Over this Shabbat Parshat Shemini, April 13-14th YITH is honored to welcome Rabbi Jeffrey Saks, founding director of ATID–The Academy of Torah Initiatives and Directions in Jewish Education, and its program, and Associate Editor of the journal, Tradition, Series Editor of the S.Y.
