|Announcements: Sassoon Children’s Shloshim Marked with New Book
The entire Jewish world was plunged into shock and grief this past Rosh Chodesh Nissan as the terrible news spread: A horrific house fire in Brooklyn took the lives of seven children of Rabbi Gabriel and Gayle Sassoon, and left Gayle and their fifteen-year-old daughter Siporah critically injured. For the shloshim of these pure korbanos, a new book about the fire and the deeper message of this tragedy has just been released.
Seven Eternal Lights: Messages and Memories from the Sassoon Family Fire was compiled by Rabbi Daniel Yaakov Travis, Rosh Kollel, who put out the book Living On: Messages, Memories and Miracles from the Har Nof Massacre. “In some ways this book is a continuation of the first one,” says Rabbi Travis. “The tzaros are still continuing, showing us that there’s more to be done….
“Unfortunately, since the Har Nof Massacre we’ve been jolted by other wake-up calls,” Rabbi Travis continues. “Four Jews in France were murdered Erev Shabbos in a kosher food store; seven Sassoon children were taken…. Hashem is calling out to us, and we must rouse ourselves and respond.”
Prominent rabbanim whose invaluable perspectives are included in the book include: Rav Moshe Shapira; Rav Shlomo Diamond; Hacham Yosef Harari-Raful; Rav Yitzchak Meir Morgenstern; Rav David Ozeri; Rav Yisroel Reisman; and many others.
The book has four main sections: Focus on Faith, which describes the tragedy of the fire as it unfolded; Memories, about the seven children who perished: Eliane – 16, Rivkah – 13, David – 12, Yehoshua – 10, Moshe – 8, Sarah – 7, and Yaakov – 5; Messages, conveying the incredible faith of the father, and the words of Rabbanim and family members, in a powerful presentation of the Torah outlook on this tragedy; and Kabbalot, detailing specific commitments ordinary people have made to change their lives in meaningful ways in the aftermath of this tragedy.
This book is a tribute to the beautiful, untainted lives of the Sassoon children, and to the mesirus nefesh of their mother and surviving sister, who risked their lives trying to save the others. We marvel at the faith of the father and the extended family, and the meaningful messages they express.
It is clear that Hakadosh Baruch Hu is sending us a strong message, that this tragedy belongs not only to one family or one community, but to all of Klal Yisrael. Together, we learn the true Jewish perspective as we seek to incorporate the lessons of this tragedy into our daily lives.
Seven Eternal Lights helps readers process this traumatic event in positive ways, while giving tzedakah to the only fund that has been approved by the victims’ family. This book was fully sponsored by generous donors, so one hundred percent of the proceeds from its sale will go directly to the Sassoon Children Memorial Education Fund, dedicated to helping families, struggling under the extreme financial burden, to pay for private-school tuition.
Seven Eternal Lights: Messages and Memories from the Sassoon Family Fire is available at Jewish bookstores, or online at Feldheim.com. In Israel, books may be ordered through Kulmus Book Distributors: (072) 244-1670.
Please continue to pray for the injured family members: Gila bas Frances Siporah and Siporah bas Gila.

|Announcements: 4 Weeks to Successful Parenting with Tammy Sassoon M.S.Ed.
I've often heard parents lament, "Wouldn't it be great if children came with an owner's manual?"
I finally decided it was time to create one. My new "4 Weeks to Successful Parenting" is a 4 CD course that presents techniques that every parent wants to know to build strong relationships, have happy children, and a relaxed home life.
Last night I was in the checkout line at Walmart. The poor Mom in front of me had a toddler who was clearly having a very bad day. He howled and demanded, but nothing Mom said could calm him down. She was apologizing to everyone around her.
We've all been in that situation. You can expect a certain amount of bad behavior with very small children. But what happens when older children still have behavior problems, get into trouble frequently, and make your life miserable?
What happens when a child you are extremely proud of still seems distant from you? You have that empty feeling that something is missing in your relationship.
Each of the CDs in the set gives you proven, family tested ideas and strategies for raising happy children, setting strong boundaries, and having a positive home life. This course also shows you how to parent with confidence and get the maximum joy from being a parent.
After all, that's what we all hoped for when we became parents - right?
Rather than setting traditional values aside for some new parenting theory, I combine the best of modern expert thought with solid, traditional family values. I feel this will give you a good, balanced approach that really works.
Let's look at what is inside the CDs:
We start with some wonderful methods to get your child to feel your love. A lot of us have parents who we knew loved us, but they may have had a hard time showing it. These simple strategies make sure your child knows and feels the intense love you have for her or him.
Next we look at the best ways to teach specific values to your child. This conquers the frequent problems that arise when children won't listen or don't value what you're trying to teach them.
I also look at how to extinguish bad behaviors, how to set limits that work, and how to insure progress. I also show you how to give your child the space he or she needs to become a strong, healthy individual.
This CD set is the smart, common sense help you need to create a better family life, wonderful children, and the sense of enjoyment you deserve. Get it today!
