Pesach 5783


Pesach is the Yom Tov on which we celebrate our freedom. The greatest manifestation of freedom is the ability to give to and care for another. As we prepare ourselves and our homes for Pesach; as we plan our menus and engage in our pre-Pesach shopping, we must pause and think about those experiencing financial hardship.

Please contribute to the Shul Maos Chitim campaign, and help us help others enjoy and celebrate the Yom Tov of Pesach. Let us use our freedom in the holiest and most meaningful way possible – let’s do what we can to help one another. Contribute online here.

If you would like to contribute by check, please make check payable to SOTC, and please write Maos Chitim in the memo line.

Suburban Orthodox Welcomes You

The Torah in Shemos states: “V’asu Li Mikdash v'shachanti b'sochum; Make for Me a Temple and I will dwell within you.” Although we have not yet merited the Third Temple, we are incredibly fortunate to have a beautiful, holy, and incredibly special מקדש מעט (small Temple) ; our own Suburban Orthodox Congregation Toras Chaim. We are a strong Shul of over 410 families made up of all ages and backgrounds. We are a Shul that takes special pride in creating a meaningful atmosphere for prayer and Torah learning.

We offer multiple opportunities for Shiurim, classes and lectures, social connections as well as extensive youth programming and community chessed. The State of Israel has a special place in our communal heart. We see its miraculous formation just 70 short years ago as the dawn of the Messianic era. Ultimately, we believe that what makes our people unique is the ability to forge a special and unique bond with הקדוש ברוך הוא, and our Shul provides us with multiple opportunities to accomplish this noble objective.

Until the day when we are blessed with the Third Temple, we will continue to use our מקדש מעט as our portal of connection to God and to each other. And, as we embark on building a new home for our holy work, we hope you will join us.

Kol Tuv,
Rabbi Shmuel Silber
