HJC Announcements and Schedule

The schedule follows the announcements.


Condolences to Ricky Prizant on the passing of his mother Clayre Prizant.  Ricky is sitting Shiva at his mother’s home, 3869 Bushnell Road, till Wednesday morning.

Refuah Sheleima to Rob Altshuler.


Sof Zman Krias Shema is 9:44 AM.

 

Mincha-Maariv this upcoming week is at 4:50PM.  Please make a point of boosting the minyan if you can. 

The post-Maariv Shiur has completed the sections of the Rambam Hilchos Ishus that cover the topics discussed in Kesubos, the current Daf Yomi masechta.  Starting next week the shiur will return to the Gemara, starting at the beginning.  We plan to spend the next five weeks learning Kesubos and endeavor to finish the masechta together with the Daf Yomi cycle on December 23.  This might seem unreasonable at first.  But since we have covered all of the halachos of Kesubos, we are starting way ahead. 

The third Shiur on the Halachos of and Insights into Tefillah will take place this Monday at 8PM at the shul.  People are welcome to attend even if they did not attend the first two shiurim.

Deena’s Eishes Chayil Group meets on Tuesday at 2PM at the shul.

Shacharis this Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, is at 8AM.

The shul is looking to enhance its Kiddush menus on the non-Cholent weeks.  Please send your ideas and suggestions to the office at office@hjcs.org or this address.

Have a Gut Shabbos,

Rabbi Davidovich

HJC Schedule and Announcements

Hello everyone,

Part One of the Halakhic Kitchen series was very well attended.  Part Two is this coming Wednesday at 8PM at the Shul.  Even if you didn’t attend the first one, it still pays to attend the other shiurim.  The first class should be posted to the website shortly. 

Deena will be starting a group for women discussing ‘Eishes Chayil’ at the shul on Tuesdays at 2PM.  It starts this coming Tuesday October 16.  Please call Deena at 397-1404 or email her at deenarm@gmail.com if you are interested in babysitting. 

OTHER REMINDERS:
Monday through Friday at 6:15AM, before Shacharis, I give a shiur in Gemara Sanhedrin. 
Sunday through Thursday right after Maariv, I give a shiur in Rambam that covers the topics of the Daf Yomi cycle. 
Shabbos morning at 8:30AM there is a Parsha Shiur.
Shabbos afternoon one half-hour before Mincha there is a shiur in Novi, where we are currently exploring Sefer Shoftim.

A gutn Chodesh and Gut Shabbos

HJC Announcements

Hello everyone,

  • Refuah Sheleima to Ted Bennett and Lou Weinstock.
  • We are planning to send out another email before Rosh Hashana.  In case something happens to prevent that, this email includes all the times through Tzom Gedalia. 
  • Mincha tonight is at 7:15PM.
  • The Pre-Selichos Drasha begins at 12:45AM on Saturday night.  Selichos begins at 1:15AM.
  • Remember to make an Eiruv Tavshilin on Wednesday before Yom-Tov starts.
  • The Thursday Night Men’s Chabura will resume after the Yomim Tovim.
  • The Daf Yomi shiur is now a Daf Yomi Companion Shiur.  What this means is that instead of doing a Daf a day, the shiur is learning the Rambam, Hilchos Ishus Ch.10 through 25, the section related to Masechta Kesubos.  While we are trying out this method, the Sunday morning catch-up shiur is being canceled. 

Have a Gut Shabbos,
Rabbi Davidovich
