I have begun, in the spirit of Elul, to type up some of my Torah thoughts, on a website, called "This Shiur is About You". Anyone who is interested in following my daily write-ups should go to https://thisshiurisaboutyou.wordpress.com/ , and sign up to receive emails of the newest posts.

The Shabbos Project will be held the weekend of October 22-24. Keep your eyes open for all the flyers and emails going around. Think now about someone to invite for the whole Shabbos who might not otherwise show up.

Good Shabbos

Thursday Mincha-Maariv 8:05pm

Mincha-Maariv tonight is at 8:05pm. There will be no mishnayos shiur tonight.We have two minyanim running tonight; one at shul and one at Steve’s house.
And a number of our regulars are still away, at various simchos.
And there is a big event at Green Road Synagogue as Rabbi Granatstein presents a book he recently published.

So we need all hands on deck. Even if you don’t usually come to HJC for weekday Mincha-Maariv, we sure could use you tonight. 8:05pm.

Thank you
Rabbi Davidovich

Perkel Kiddush

As was mentioned in this week’s email, the Perkels will be moving to Baltimore this week. The kiddush this Shabbos is sponsored in their honor, and in honor of the 20 years of friendship they have given to our shul and community.

It saddens me that I will not be there at the Kiddush. We are at a family event in Baltimore and there is no way for me to be in both places at once. But please be certain that I am with you in spirit, and I will miss Chanan and Bobbi tremendously.

Chanan and I have gotten to know each other very well these past years. Most of you may not know this, but Chanan is quite the aficionado of politics and history. (As am I.) He used to tend more to one party, and now tends a bit towards the other one. I won’t tell you which is which, as I do not want to betray any confidences. His experiences and insights in this area have illuminated many areas of learning. As am I. He and Bobbi have been avid listeners of my drashos and shiurim, and they have always shown respect for Torah and Mitzvos, and have given much care and attention to HJC over the years.

I will miss them both terribly, although my repeated trips to Baltimore will ensure that I will still see them on a somewhat regular basis. I wish them a safe trip, enjoyment of and nachas from their grandchildren, and many years of good health.

Good Shabbos
Rabbi Davidovich
