HJC Alliyos for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

Dear Friend,

 

Once again we are conducting a silent auction via email for alliyos on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  The alliyos available are listed below.  Bidding starts at $36 per alliyah.  We may move your bid to a different alliyah (with your permission) in order to balance them out.  As the Rabbi has reminded us in prior years:

 

The Mishna Berura (Ch.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.”

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@symphonyiri.com

 

The alliyos are:

 

Rosh Hashanah, First Day

Cohen

Levi

Shlishi

Rivi’i

Chamishi

Maftir

 

Rosh Hashanah, Second Day

Shlishi

HJC News – Re’ei

Kiddush this Shabbos is sponsored by Rabbi and Deena Davidovich in honor of their daughter Shalva’s Bas-Mitzvah. 

This week at Shalosh Seudos we will discuss Rav Kook. 


Rosh Chodesh Elul is this Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Wednesday evening at 8 PM, Heights Jewish Center will host another  “The Power of an Hour” event for the women and girls of our community.  The speakers will be Rabbi Davidovich and Rabbi Notis.

Our next Hot Topics Breakfast is Sunday September 4 at 9am.  The opening talk is entitled “Halacha, Ethics and the Frightening Future of Orthodox Judaism”, followed by Q & A on this and any other topic.

Rosh Hashana is only five weeks away. Once again, the Shul is fortunate to have Rabbi Simcha Mann as our Chazan for the Yomim Noraim.  Please call the office to reserve your seats.


The Shul will be preparing a Yizkor Booklet for Yom Kippur as well.  Please call or come into the office between 8:30AM and 12:30PM to submit names and make donations for the booklet.  Details are available in the office.


Good Shabbos

Fwd: JFSA Critical Needs

At JFSA we currently have two critical needs that we are looking to fill. If you can be of any help in letting the community know we would be grateful.

 


1) Our food pantry is extremely low with many requests pouring in. If you could let congregants know, perhaps they could drop off foodstuff during the week.  The address is 

JFSA – Drost Family Center

24075 Commerce Park Rd

Beachwood, OH  44122


We would be happy to come by and pick up the goods if no one is able to deliver them to the JFSA Food Pantry in Commerce Park.  They need canned EVERYTHING (fruit, vegetables, soups, peanut butter, jelly, sauces, beans, +++)  tuna, hot and cold cereals and rice (not pasta).
 
2) We are looking for volunteers to deliver in our Home Delivered Meals Program.  On Tuesday and /or Thursday mornings volunteers pick up the meals at Myers Apartments and deliver to the elderly and housebound in the eastern suburbs.  Volunteers should allow approximately 2.5 hours to deliver meals, friendly greetings and smiles!
 
Thank you so much for any help that you can give us.
 
Please contact:  Sandra Lusher-Waterhouse, Manager of Volunteers, Jewish Family Service Association 216-378-3475 or slusher@jfsa-cleveland.org
