Dr. Baruch Kaplan
Lechu Neranena community Givat Shmuel

I want to thank, respect and appreciate the initiative of your community “Lechu Neranena”, to work god in both ways, singing and learning Torah, since in your community the voice of songs and prayers is heard in distance and the voice of Torah is also heard by many of our brothers in the “Givat Shmuel” area, who enjoy the lectures by the best Talmidei Hachamim in your place.
It was exciting and heart worming to look at and listen to your singing and praying, how Reb Shlomo conducts the largest chorus in the world (“Ken Yirbu”), in such a pleasant and charming manner. Your community leadership and prayers are well known all over the country.

I bless you from the bottom of my heart that God will help you to recruit many Torah soldiers in your unique way of work. I wish that you will continue to hold the Pasuk “Work God with happiness and joy”, Amen.

Sincerely yours,
Yona Metzger
Chief Rabbi of Israel
