HJC Rosh Hashana-Yom Kippur

The Mishna Berura (Ch. תקפ”ח 584:S.K.8) quotes the great compendium on all Yomim Noraim matters, the Mateh Ephraim, as follows: 

“It is appropriate for every G-d fearing man to make an effort to get an Aliyah on the Yomim Noraim (Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur). Even in places where the Aliyos are usually auctioned off [to the wealthy], one should “purchase” an Aliya for that time of year for as much as his means allow. 

“[And lest one think that there is something degrading about purchasing an Aliyah at such a holy time of year, the truth is] just the opposite: There is greater spiritual advantage in a Mitzvah that comes one’s way through monetary expenditure than in a Mitzvah that has come one’s way free of charge.”

In the coming weeks, representatives of the shul will be offering some of you the opportunity to “purchase” an aliyah for the upcoming Yomim Tovim.  They will not be able to contact everyone.  If you are interested in taking the initiative in acquiring this merit for yourself or someone else and investing in our Kehilla at the same time, please call the office (216-382-1958), or contact Martin Lipman at Martin.Lipman@infores.com.

Starting this Tuesday at 8:25PM, September 1, and continuing on September 8 and 15 after Maariv:
  A 3-part special class following Maariv:
      “Enhance Your Yamim Noraim”.  The short class, less than 45 minutes long, will explore the Rambam’s 13 Ikrei Emunah, Principles of Faith, to prepare us for a more meaningful Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Heights Jewish Center is holding a  “Spruce up the Shul in Elul” event on Sunday September 13th. From 9am to 3pm, our doors will be open and members of our community are invited to pitch in and help us tackle small projects designed to maintain or repair our building. You don’t need to know how to swing a hammer or lift heavy objects:  there are projects to organize, clean and repair things so that our Shul is sparkling for the holidays.

[To prepare for the cleaning and organizing, we ask that you take a moment to peruse the cloakroom and remove any belongings. On that Sunday the 13th, all coats, scarves, shoes, hats, and any other clothing, which is hanging in our coat rooms and has not been claimed or otherwise marked as belonging to YOU, will be declared Hefker, and will be donated to a Gemach, or otherwise disposed of.  ]


As you know, in Elul we increase our mitzvos, including the giving of tzedakah. Tzedakah can be your time as well as money. We ask that you join us, even if you only have an hour or two, have the opportunity to get to know the other members and contribute to our shul in a meaningful way. If you are unable to attend but would like to make a donation, the money will be used to purchase the supplies to clean and repair on that day.


Good Shabbos
Rabbi Davidovich
