Post 359: Don’t stop Exercising: An evening of divrei chizuk by Rabbi Mendel Kessin Shlita, List of Fish available in Israel, Free Hevron Tour with Shalom Pollack

Don’t stop exercising

Taking a month or two off of regular exercise may not be so benign. A new small study shows that when muscles take a break, they maintain very little muscle memory from the prior exercise.  (As TIME recently reported)

In preparation of Rosh Hashana, this Elul, we are pleased to announce an evening of divrei chizuk by Rabbi Mendel Kessin Shlita.

VENUE: YESHIVAS RABBI AKIVA (For location details)
TIME: 8.00PM for 8.15PM
