[09/29/20]   Dear Congregants,

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Rabbi Ezran (Eliahu Shalom Ezran ben Abigail, Z”L) who was our dear Rabbi for more than 20 years and devoted so much time and effort to Magain David.

He passed away at the end of Yom Kippur. His funerals will be held in Israel.

Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Baruch Dayan Ha'emet
May his memory be a blessing
