BRUCE HEITLER It started many decades ago when Heitler began hosting a weekly Torah class in his busy real estate office. No matter what was happening, this hour of Torah study became sacrosanct. Well, decades later, the Torah class is still happening, but by now it is but the tip of the iceberg. Heitler is out there virtually every evening teaching one Torah class or another. They reflect his deep dive into Hebrew, the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud over these past decades. The distance he has traveled since the days when he was a beginning student an hour a week in his office is immeasurable. And even this does not include the extensive time he spends studying Torah with his grandchildren -- also a virtually daily endeavor.
One might think that Heitler has nothing else to do. Nothing could be further from the truth. Besides his stewardship of a busy real estate firm, his academic training in philosophy, in the law and in city planning, plus his long experience in real estate, made him a perfect go-to person for the reconfiguration -- the reinvention, really -- of the former Lowry Air Force base into what we now know as the lovely Lowry neighborhood.
Heitler wears many hats, serving a model of Jewish ethics as he interacts with the full variety of types in our fair city.
Dona is at home receiving OT, PT, speech, and nursing care. She is not up to having visitors. How to help? At this point, the answer is meals. Both to provide Dona and Michael with food and take one concern off my mind, this is a massive help. All the details and specifications are listed on the site.
I am hopeful that in the coming weeks we can add in visits as well.

SHABBAT TO HONOR OUR YOUTH
On Saturday, June 1, we will have a special Shabbat to honor our youth. We will feature extra good, kid-friendly food, and hopefully some of our Kohelet kids will participate in the service. Many of our kids are transitioning to a major milestone, and all of them are at least transitioning from one grade to the next, so let's honor them on this occasion.
KOHELET SHABBATON JULY 26-27
Kohelet members have a treat in store this summer! Ellyn Hutt, an amazing Torah teacher, will learn with us at an in-town Shabbaton on July 26-27, sharing her wisdom throughout the weekend. Those of us who know Ellyn highly recommend studying Torah with her. Please put July 26-27 on your calendar for an extraordinary learning experience. Join us! Details to follow.
