HJC News – Vayeishev

Please note that Mincha this Friday and next Friday is at 4:30PM, before candle-lighting time. This is done to ensure that the Menorah is lit in shul with enough time to spare before Shabbos begins.  One’s own menorah should be lit before coming to shul, and have enough fuel to last until one half hour past dark.  

Shacharis this coming week is earlier than usual.  Between Monday and Wednesday, it’s at 6:40AM.  On Thursday and Friday, it’s at 6:30AM.  Beginning this Monday and extending through to the end of January, those who attend our shul’s Monday-thru-Friday Shacharis should make their brochos on Tallis and Tefillin after Yishtabach.

Getting a minyan for Mincha- Maariv has been a struggle these past few weeks.  If you are not downtown or overseas, your help in making a timely minyan will be greatly appreciated. 

Part Two of the Chanukah Gelt, Jews and Money Class will take place this Tuesday at 8:00 PM. 

The Shul’s Board installation/Chanukah Luncheon will take place next Shabbos. Please contact the office to make your reservations. 

Good Shabbos and Happy Chanukah
Rabbi Davidovich
