“Nes Gadol Hayah Poh”a great miracle happened here! This timely phrase was recited by President Daniel Lehmann at a Chanukah celebration on December 11th to rededicate the building which houses the Hebrew College in Newton, Massachusetts.
150 members of the Hebrew College financial committee found themselves in serious debt, to the extent that that the school was put up for sale last year. Restructuring efforts paid off with the help of some substantial monetary gifts from generous contributors.
Beaming with joy while affixing mezuzahs on the doorposts of five rooms in the Conference Center in gratitude and thanksgiving, these folks feel that the rededication of their building echoes the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem so many years ago. May the miracles of the past come to life again for us too, one and all!
