Ohev Men's Club presents annual World Wide Wrap
January 12, 2018
Super Bowl Sunday is just weeks away. That means the annual World Wide Wrap sponsored by the Men’s Club of Congregation Ohev Shalom is just weeks away as well.
Each year, Men’s Clubs from Conservative and Masorti synagogues throughout the United States and beyond present this Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs program to encourage greater participation in the ancient and deeply meaningful ritual of wrapping t’filin.
This year, Ohev Shalom Men’s Club member and Jewish Academy of Orlando Head of School Alan Rusonik will start the morning with a new presentation. As Rusonik explains it, those who attend will have the opportunity to “learn how t’filin is made, examine the inside of the t’filin, and talk about its meaning and significance.”
Following the presentation, Rabbi David Kay will guide participants in the mechanics of wrapping t’filin as an introduction to the Sunday morning minyan service. An elaborate breakfast will be served at the conclusion of the service. Three Men’s Club members will then step forward with a surprise “dramatic” program to get everyone in the mood for the big game later that day.
The program will be held at Congregation Ohev Shalom, 613 Maitland Concourse Parkway South in Maitland, starting at 9 a.m. sharp on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018. Admission is free, but donations at the door are welcome and appreciated.
