Bukharian Honors For Ancestors

Bukharian Honors For Ancestors

If you haven’t noticed the new Bukharian shtiebel on 77th Drive and 148th Street, please don’t confuse it with the one on 73rd Avenue, or the one on 77th Avenue, or Kehilat Sephardim on 78th Avenue. “We are pleased to announce the grand opening of this new synagogue,” said Simcha Sohibkhorov. “I cannot imagine a better honor for my great-great-uncle-in-law.”

While the ner tamid is eternally lit next to the aron kodesh, there will be an equally eternal samovar in the back offering the hottest and strongest-tasting green tea, along with baklava sticky enough to bind the pages of heavily used siddurim. “When it comes to honoring our ancestors, we have Sefer Toyi (Torah processions) to tie up neighborhood traffic for weeks to come, but that’s not enough. Even a bet knesset built by each family on each block is not enough. The rabbis taught us that the mikvah must come first. I’m purchasing Spa Castle. Our women deserve the best.”
