Special Announcements

SIYUM MISHNAYOT:

This Shabbat afternoon between Mincha and Maariv in the Main Sanctuary, David Miner will present a siyum upon the commemoration of the first yahrzeit of his father, Murray Miner z"l followed by to-go refreshments in the Downstairs Social Hall. All are invited to attend.

ZOOM KOL NIDREI:

A special Kol Nidrei service will be broadcast on Zoom at 5:00 p.m. on Erev Yom Kippur, Sunday, September 27 for those who are unable to attend shul that evening. All are welcome to participate by using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/5757628337.

YIZKOR ON YOM KIPPUR:

This year, at all our Yom Kippur minyanim, Yizkor will not be recited at its traditional slot immediately after the Haftarah. Instead, it will be recited at the conclusion of davening, after the final kaddish of Mussaf. Those who will be reciting Yizkor may stay at their seats; those who will not be reciting Yizkor are encouraged to exit and avoid congregating.

MOTZEI SHABBAT SHUVA DRASHA:

The Rabbi's annual Shabbat Shuva Drasha between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur will take place on Zoom on Motzei Shabbat, September 26 at 8:30 p.m. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/5757628337. The Drasha will be sponsored by Jeremy and Tova Renna in memory of his mother, Miriam bat Yitzchak Isaac ז"ל and Yehuda and Faigie Hecht in memory of his father, Moshe Yaakov ben Chaim ז"ל.

THE COVID-FRIENDLY SUKKAH:

Are you interested in constructing a sukkah that allows for more airflow? Let Rabbi Miodownik show you how to build a "covidik sukkah" for 5781. The rabbi will demonstrate some examples of halachic principles that can be used to create walls that breath. Please join him on Sunday morning, September 27, Erev Yom Kippur at 10:30 a.m. on Zoom for this 15-minute primer: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/5757628337.
