Maftir Yonah (East Thornhill YK)

$770.00

  • The third Torah reading continues the theme of the previous two Torah readings.
  • It is customary at the JRCC services that the rabbi receives this Aliyah and reads the hafotrah, the prophetic reading.
  • While every Aliyah is important, this one has special significance. In the prophetic reading, we hear the story of Jonah, who was attempting to flee from G-d.
  • This episode teaches us that sincere repentance can reverse even the harshest heavenly decrees. Reading this haftorah is also a segulah for wealth. In many communities, people contribute the most for this Maftir, since according to your investment, G-d repays us with doubled and redoubled blessing.
  • At JRCC, we give everyone the opportunity to take part in this special aliyah by contributing $770 for each person. All participants will be partners in this special Aliyah and the blessings that come along with it. They will also all be invited to the bimah and will be given a special MiSheberach blessing.
