This evening-- Monday, January 18th -- at 7:30 pm EST, Congregation Machzikei Hadas in Ottawa, Canada will be hosting a Worldwide Prayer Rally for its Rabbi Emeritus, Rabbi Reuven Bulka, who, sadly, has been diagnosed with prostate and liver cancer.
In his over 50 years as Rabbi and, more recently, as Rabbi Emeritus, of the congregation, Rabbi Bulka has served his congregation and congregants with distinction while also becoming a most positive force in the entire community be it the city, the province, the country or globally, There is a reason why 680 News, the 24 hour news radio station in Toronto refers to him as Canada's Rabbi. (See, further, Worldwide virtual prayer rally to be held for 'Canada's rabbi' after cancer diagnosis at https://www.680news.com/2021/01/17/worldwide-virtual-prayer-rally-to-be-held-for-canadas-rabbi-after-cancer-diagnosis-2/ ). His life's efforts have truly been a kiddush Hashem)
