“Relevant and meaningful insights”
Beit Ahava v Tefillah is a remarkable entity. I cannot find enough superlatives to describe the House of Love and Prayer. First of all this house is a mobile operation with more than one base. It is a Sukkot SHALOM There is the outreach to comfort house, feed, and counsel people from all backgrounds.It is FAITH IN ACTION, a beacon of light for spiritual seekers, and a dynamic place in which to praise God. It is particularly helpful to me that the D’var Torahs are spoken in both Hebrew and English so I can grow my Hebrew and my spirit simultaneously.HOLAP serves many who have limited means and makes the threshold one where everyone can enter. Beit Ahava v Tefillah is a place where it is easy to sense that ” I BELONG.” and a feeling of acceptance.

The “REAL DEAL” is how I’d characterize the House of Love and Prayer. When I think about House Of Love and Prayer and what it means, I think of a place where caring with a capital”C” occurs: a MAKOM. It is action, intelligence and compassion mixed into one package.

Focus is on demonstrating Torah values. Regardless of short supply, all who need it-get a listening ear, a bowl of soup, a Shabbat meal-no excuses. The shear quantity of people and the distances from which they have come is mind-boggling. Holy brother and Holy sister Yaakov and Mirale set an example of selfless love and real understanding that shines forth on all who enter Beit Ahava v’ Tefilah .

I appreciate the way common sense is combined with uncommon cheer and a welcome greeting whenever one enters the Beit Knesset or the Drori home.
