MACHON MEIR YESHIVA JERUSALEM
Machon Meir is a Center for Jewish Studies that is located in the heart of Jerusalem, Israel in the neighborhood of Kiryat Moshe. It was established by Rabbi Dov Bigon shortly after the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Rabbi Bigon was a commander in the Israeli Defense Force that helped liberate Jerusalem and the Western Wall from the Jordanian Legion. After the war he began to contemplate the meaning of the Jewish Nation and decided to enroll himself in the Merkaz HaRav Kook Yeshiva in Jerusalem.

Machon Meir for over the last 35 years has been a place for all of Am Yisrael to come and learn more about their Jewish roots. It is a place to get a deeper understanding of what it means to be part of the Nation of Israel and the importance of living in the Land of Israel. Since its inception it has grown to become more than just a center for Jewish learning. It now has expanded into a facility that has over 600 students with classes in Hebrew, English, Russian, French and Spanish. Its main student body is made up of Israelis, which is great for the student from abroad to be able to get a first hand feel of what the Israeli Religious culture is like. It also has thousands of Alumni who frequently visit Machon Meir and stay in personal contact with their Rabbis.
It has also opened up a Religious Zionist seminary for women speakers of Hebrew, Spanish and Russian called Machon Ora. If you would like to visit their website go to ttp://mora.machonmeir.net/heb/
Machon Meir is also the only place in Jerusalem which offers Kosher, Torani Ulpan classes for men only to learn Hebrew. These classes take place during the afternoon hours Sunday-Wednesday. If you would like to visit their website go to ttp://ulpan-ivrit.co.il/
Machon Meir has become known throughout Israel as the place to go to learn more and grow as a Jewish person and member of Am Yisrael. It has also become the landing point for many new immigrants from all the countries in the Diaspora because of its value on full integration into Israeli society and the encouragement to be a part of the Israeli Defense Force.

Living with the Parshah: Finders Keepers?
Rafi swung down his tennis racquet. “Okay, game’s over. I have to go home.”
He picked up his racquet and waved goodbye to his friend Daniel. He decided to walk through the park to go home. As Rafi walked, he noticed something lying in the path. He walked over and picked it up. It was an old brown leather wallet. He stood up and looked about him — there was nobody around to whom it could belong. He opened the wallet, and his eyes lit up. There was money inside, quite a bit actually. There were no cards, though, just a photograph of two small children, a girl and a boy.
Now, he remembered learning about this in school. Returning lost articles is a topic in the Torah. If there is no name, no way to return it, he can keep it. Well, he definitely had what to spend it on. It looked as though there was almost $100 inside there. He could buy a new tennis racquet, as his was getting really old, or he could get a camera, as he had always wanted one, or… His mind was still busy thinking of ways to spend the money when he arrived home. He went upstairs and showed the wallet to his sister Rina.
“What do you think of that? No name, no identification. It’s mine!” Rina looked a bit doubtful.
“If I lost that, I would be pretty miserable,” Rina pointed out. “And anyway, there is some sort of identification. There’s a photograph.”
“Well, I don’t know who the children are,” Rafi argued. “It would be virtually impossible to find out who they are.”
“One moment,” Rina said, “they are wearing school uniforms. Who has a green uniform? One moment, don’t the Rosen children wear uniforms like that?” The Rosens were the Cohens neighbors. Rina insisted on going to ask the Rosens if they knew the children in the photograph. Rafi followed, not looking very happy. Michael Rosen said that yes, he knew them. They were called Joel and Rachel, but he couldn’t remember their surname. Perhaps his brother David would remember their surname. David was coming home at 7:30. Rafi and Rina went home and waited for David to phone.
At 7:30, the phone rang. Rafi closed his eyes and answered the phone. It was for his father. The phone rang again five minutes later. It was David Rosen; the children’s surname was Rabinow. David gave Rafi the Rabinows’ phone number. He phoned the number, and a woman with a squeaky voice answered the phone. “Yes! You found it!” It was actually her mother-in-law, the children’s grandmother, who had lost the wallet, but she was extremely grateful to Rafi for being so honest — and for working so hard to find the owner.
Later that evening, Rafi’s father came over to him. “Rina told me about this wallet business, Rafi. I’m very proud of you for working it out. It must have been quite difficult to give it up. Actually, the commandment of returning lost objects to their rightful owner is mentioned in this week’s Torah portion. So it’s quite a timely good deed!”
Rafi tried not to think of the tennis racquet and the camera. After all, it feels good to do a good deed. And he did feel happy for the grandmother who got back her wallet.

It is a time when we look back at the year that has passed and make decisions about how we want to improve going forward.Did you know that during the month of Elul, it is a custom to sound the shofar each weekday morning? The sound of the shofar reminds us that Rosh Hashanah is coming.Learn more about the meaning of the Shofar in “Fire and Faith,” an audio story from Chaim the Storyteller.Our feature film this week is an excerpt of “Young Abraham,” the famous story from the Midrash about how Abraham destroyed the idols in his father’s shop.Fans of “The Shpy” will love this installment, where the Shpy reminisces about his childhood and what it was like growing up in a Shpy family.
