On Shabbat of September 6-7, Congregation Ohr Torah of Edison will host Rabbi Ephraim Shapiro as its scholar-in-residence.

Rabbi Shapiro is the rav at Congregation Shaarey Tefilah in North Miami Beach and is known for his daily shiurim for the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation. Many of his Torah classes can be found on TorahAnytime, among other places on the internet. Rabbi Shapiro is also heavily involved in speaking on behalf of SHUVU, BMG and a number of other organizations.

On Friday night he will speak at 9:30 p.m. in the social hall on the topic, “Don’t Overcharge and Don’t Underpay: The Power of Speech.”

On Shabbat morning he will present a drasha (at approximately 11:00 a.m.) entitled “Three on a Motorcycle: Living a Life of Kiddush Hashem.”

On Shabbat afternoon he will talk at 6:00 p.m. in the main sanctuary on “Utilizing the Gift of Elul.”

Between Mincha at 6:45 p.m. and Maariv (after a quick seuda shelishit) he will discuss “Removing the Darkness—One Act at Time.”

This Shabbat scholar-in-residence weekend has been generously sponsored by the Zinkin, Gerszberg and Ornstein families.
