Thank You
Ron Teichman and his family thanks the Ohr Torah community and, in fact, the entire West Orange Jewish community for the wishes, prayers and support they received upon the passing of Ron's mom. Those who came to the house to make a Minyan and those that worked the phones to ensure that there was a Minyan each day are especially appreciated. It is one of the special features of the West Orange Jewish community that when needed the members of Ohr Torah, The Lubavitch Shul and AABJ&D come together to help each other.
A special thanks to Rabbi Spivak for being there and for handling a difficult situation with tact and grace, even on a day that he was supposed to be at his 'other job.'

Mazal Tov
Mazel Tov to Susan and David Lando on the birth of a grandson.

The parents are J.J. Lando and his wife Laurie Siegel Lando of NYC.
Mazel Tov also to aunts and uncles Debra and Dov Lando, Betty and Zvi Lando and Tali and Alex Aronoff and their families.
