Mazel Tov to Steve and Beth Baker on the engagement of their son Jeremy to Kara Zelman of Cleveland.

With the change in the clocks, it has become more challenging to maintain our weekday Mincha-Maariv minyan. It is important for all of us that HJC continue to be a full service shul, with all minyanim available and reliable. If you are not at work during this time, please consider making attendance at Mincha-Maariv a part of your routine. It’s good for you, materially and spiritually, as the prayers said together with a community are guaranteed to be accepted, good for your families, and ensures the continued strength of the Kehilla.

This Thursday, at 8pm, I will be giving my weekly Shiur on Hashkafa and Parsha at the Beachwood-University Heights Kollel. All men in the community are welcome to attend. Spread the word; among our members and also among people who you think would benefit but who don’t come to our Shul.

I want to thank you for your visits, your expressions of concern, and calls and texts and emails over the past few weeks. I have missed you all and missed being in Shul. I look forward to seeing you this Shabbos.

With a considerable amount of trepidation, and in a move unusual for us in the Shul, I will be addressing this past week’s presidential election this Shabbos during the Drasha.
