Reaffirmation of Our Traditions (Takana) - Shabbat, June 9th at our Synagogues

As we do every year, there will be a special reading of the 'Takana' and commemorating the “Allahdadi Incident” in all Three Synagogues on Shabbat June 9. This Special Day has already become a Mashadi community Institution to remind us every year of our traditions (per the UMJCA by-laws) regarding intermarriage. Intermarriage poses the greatest threat to Jews in the USA and it is important to keep this Takana fresh in our minds. Special Programs are being organized at our Synagogues to remember this Historic Day. For more information please contact, Jonny Hazghian, Ephraim Aminoff or Arezou Tolou Hakimian.
