Shul Info: April 27 – May 4.

Hello everyone,

The schedule for the coming week follows the announcements. Please read the announcements. It’s not just the usual.

  • Early Friday evening davening begins this week. Mincha this Friday is at 6:45pm sharp. Please remember to count sefira at home after dark.
  • Mincha-Maariv throughout the week will be at 8:05PM, preceded by Daf Yomi at 7:20PM. We would love to see you there. Why daven elsewhere?

  • The shul is having a Lag B’Omer picnic this year, on Sunday May 6 from noon to 3pm, at Purvis Park behind the shul. Please, please, PLEASE leave a message at the shul office at 382-1958 or email the office at to make your reservations. Invite a friend too. The people who are preparing everything need a tally by Monday April 30 to get a sense of what they need to buy. Great food for sale and music, activities and games for the kids.

  • The shul’s website is up and running, with information updated constantly by the shul’s webmaster, Neil Parks.

  • Halachic good news: Since Lag B’Omer is on Sunday this year, one may get a haircut on Friday May 4; two days earlier, L’Kovod Shabbos. (SA OC 493:2 Rama)

  • Thinking ahead to Shavuos: Of course, the shul is open Shavuos night for learning. I would love to hear from anyone who has ideas for topics for Shiurim. Please email me any suggestions you may have.

Have a Good Shabbos,

Rabbi Davidovich

First real post

Welcome one and all to HJC’s new blog. It will be a mixture of shul announcements and personal thoughts, the occasional dvar Torah and insight on whatever interests me. Thanks to Neil Parks, the shul’s webmaster, for his work on the website and this new blog. Your comments are welcome at
