A Letter from India

Our town, Moreh is a remote town situated 116 kilometres away from Imphal-South East along the border with Myanmar.

We celebrate the Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur and Sucot in our small town. Jews from surrounding villages also join us on all occassions. We enjoy dwelling in the Sukkah though rain may disturb us at midnight or other times of night.

We do not have school building but I usually tutor them in my home. They are all young children of 10 to 15 years old. I have about 35 children who can attend regular class. I taught them Ivrit, songs, stories from the bible and common and important Halachos given on the siddur but due to lack of book for text. I have to collect some available book and references to continue the school.

…I do like to request for Midrash and Shulchan Aruch as we usually sermon on the Shabbat and festival—due to lack of text we have only few knowledge about these.

May your kindness and love for us, your children in Moreh be always remembered.
