We invite you to choose an individual Mishna passage, a chapter, or a tractate (book) of Mishnah, to study in memory of our brothers and sisters from the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh.
To honor the victims of the tragedy on October 27, we ask the Southern New Jersey community to participate in our memorial program, “Torah for the Soul: Mishna Neshama”. Through the mitzvah of Torah study, we will honor our brothers and sisters of blessed memory.
In Jewish tradition, the community completes a unit of Torah, Mishnah, or Talmud study in the days following the death of a beloved family member or friend. At its completion, we hold a communal siyyum (Hebrew: סיום) (“completion”) in tribute and honor of the deceased.
And on Super Sunday, January 27, at 1 pm at the JCC, we will complete our study together and celebrate with a Seudat Mitzvah, a meal to mark the completion of a commandment.
