Sarytchev Twins

Mazel Tov to Rabbi Nachum Sarytchev and his wife, Nurit, on the birth of twins.  On the morning of Sunday, August 15, 2010 (5 Elul, תש“ס), Nurit gave birth to twin baby boys.  Everyone is doing fine.  Nurit is recovering normally.  The twins are healthy.  As is often the case with twins, they were born a little earlier than normal term and are a little low in weight.  The mohel suggested that they wait until the children gain a bit more weight before the brit milah (bris) so it will be delayed.  The congregation and community wish, with the help of Hashem, the parents much nachas with their new children.

Update: The brit milah ("bris") will be on Sunday, September 5, at 2 PM at 935 Eastern Parkway, in Crown Heights (Brooklyn).

Hyman Patchin (1916-2010)

The people of Beit Aharon mourn the passing of out longtime member Hyman Patchin, known by his fellow congregants as Chaim.  Chaim had been participating in services at Beit Aharon for many years and came almost every Shabbat, including his very last Shabbat.  Baruch Hashem for his having been blessed with relatively good health until the end, walking a mile to shul and back every Shabbat, well into his 90's, even in bad weather.

Chaim passed away on Thursday, July 8 (26 Tammuz), apparently in his sleep and of natural causes.  He was 94 years old.
