AHAVAS ACHIM SIMCHA AND YOUTH GROUP LEADER HAKARAT HATOV KIDDUSH: Join the Group Leader Hakarat HaTov & Simcha Kiddush on Shabbat, June 1. Many of AA's youth participated in the many youth activities that went on this year at AA—through our Morning Shabbat Groups, Teen Minyan, Hot Teen Minyan Kiddush, Toddler Jumping Jellybeans, Pre-Yom Tov Events, Purim Party, and more. The success of our Youth Department is due to our incredible Group Leaders who provide love and dedication to our children—and now you have an opportunity to thank them! To participate in the Simcha kiddush, be sure to forward your Simcha information: (date, honoree, occasion) to Kivi and Chani at We all have much to be grateful for and to celebrate! Share it with your Ahavas Achim family: birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, new business, retirement, acceptance to university, awards, births, engagements, marriages, etc. All profits will benefit the AA Youth Department! Checks should be made out to Ahavas Achim with a designation of “Youth Kiddush” in the memo. The Hakarat Hatov/Simcha Kiddush posting deadline is Monday, May 27.

SHAVUOT SIYUM AND KIDDUSH 5779: MONDAY, JUNE 10, 2019—THE POWER OF TEFILLAH AND BEIT KNESSET: This year, we are excited to invite you to join a very different learning experience as together we study identical texts on the critical themes of the Sanctity of the Beit Knesset and the Power of Public Prayer in the Beit Knesset. This will be a fitting way for us to honor the memory of the wonderful men and women who were taken from us this year and inspire us to appreciate our relationship with our shul. We highly encourage you to join together with your fellow shul members—even if you have not participated in the past—in this important expression of love for shul and community. We will celebrate the completion of this communal learning on the second day of Shavuot before our Gala Shavuot Kiddush. To register for the siyum, please visit:
