Last Channukah, one of the speakers at Rabbi Galperin's community candle lighting was the founder of Kids Kicking Cancer.  I just came across an article in the Jewish Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/kmbtfn2) about Rabbi Goldberg being a finalist for CNN's hero of the year.  I am reproducing the article here.

Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg started Kids Kicking Cancer and has been chosen as one of 10 finalists in this year’s CNN Hero of 2014. Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg started Kids Kicking Cancer and has been chosen as one of 10 finalists in this year’s CNN Hero of 2014.

One day, Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg came upon a child screaming in hospital during a chemotherapy session and spontaneously stepped in to try to help. Extemporizing, Rabbi Goldberg, a black belt in karate, taught the five-year-old a basic tai chi breathing technique, calming him so that the nurses could begin chemotherapy.

“I told him that the pain is a message you don’t have to listen to and I showed him how to breathe in this amazing energy and blow out the pain…and that is how Kids Kicking Cancer (KKC) was born,” Goldberg told VosIzNeias.com.

Goldberg, rabbi emeritus at Young Israel of Southfield, was head counsellor of Camp Simcha at the time, and sadly, would himself lose a daughter to leukemia.

The non-profit’s website says their mission is “to ease the pain of very sick children while empowering them to heal physically, spiritually and emotionally.”

Weekly classes merge modern integrative medicine with traditional martial arts. The program also uses Skype and has spread around the world to hospitals in New York, California, Michigan as well as here in Canada, Israel, and even the Vatican Hospital in Italy.

Rabbi Goldberg is one of 10 finalists (out of thousands of nominations worldwide) eligible to become CNN’s hero of 2014. If you would like to help vote him to the top, visit: http://cnn.it/1pwZrId until Nov. 16.

New Poll - Your thoughts on our website PDF Print E-mail

Our shul's website is celebrating its eighth year online.  During that time, it has been redesigned once (in August 2009).  While the content has been maintained and updated faithfully over the years, the underlying structure is outdated and might be vulnerable to hacking.  Due to the number of articles published over the years, conversion of the site is no trivial matter.  The newest poll addresses your thoughts on whether you would be willing to contribute to the costs of modernizing the website.

 

Edit:

I received notification on May 1, 2014 that the company which hosts the synagogue website will be updating its underlying foundation on May 8th.   They asked that I test this website prior to the conversion to see if the update will go smoothly.  Unfortunately, the synagogue website DOES NOT FUNCTION using the new foundation.  This means that I must temporarily leave the website operating with an outdated and insecure foundation until it can be redesigned. 

 

Up to this point, all costs for creating, hosting and maintaining this website since 2006 have been borne by me, personally.  However, I do not have the funds to convert the website to a new platform.

 

If you are able to help with a financial contribution, please send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and provide details on how you can be contacted.

 

Thank you!
