HJC News – Nitzavim Vayeilech

Kiddush this Shabbos is sponsored by Sam and Alla Galperin in honor of Sam’s birthday.

At Shalosh Seudos this week we will speak about the Chofetz Chaim, whose Yohrtzeit is 24 Elul.

The Stone Setting for Bill Mintz, Stuart Mintz’s father, will take place at Sinai Cemetery on SOM Center Rd this Sunday September 25 at 10:30AM.

Part Two of “Strategies for Rosh Hashana and the Year Ahead” will take place this Sunday at 8 PM at the Shul.  Part One is available on the Shul’s website.  http://www.hjcs.org/audioclass.php Take a look at the other shiurim available there too.

Please pay close attention to this week’s schedule as it appears in this email. There are a number of changes to the ordinary weekday schedule.  


The Pre-Selichos Drasha will begin tomorrow night at 11:30PM and Selichos will begin at 12AM.

The Shul Office will be open Sunday between 9am and 12noon.


We would appreciate the help of anyone who can help this Sunday morning to set up the shul for Rosh Hashana.  Please see Rob Altshuler to offer some of your time.


If you have not already done so, please contact the office this week to reserve your seats for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.

Childcare is available Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur by pre-paid reservation only.  Please contact the office to reserve. 

Please call or contact the office ASAP to order Lulavim sets for Succos.

The shul will have a Simchas Torah Luncheon on Friday October 21, by reservation only. Please contact the office to make those reservations.

Aliyos for Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur:

The Mishna Berura 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

Good Shabbos
