HJC News – Tazria / Hachodesh

Mincha this Friday (4/1) and next Friday (4/8) is at 7:30pm.  Early Shabbos will begin the following Friday, (4/15) for Shabbos Hagadol.

This week at Shalosh Seudos we will discuss Rabbi Sholom Ber Schneersohn, the fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe.

This Sunday April 3rd at 9AM we will have another Ask-The-Rabbi Hot Topics Breakfast.  All topics are welcome and encouraged.  Come prepared with an appetite and a question.  The more controversial the question the better.

Starting Sunday, I will be available, by morning appointment as well as after Maariv for arrangements to sell your Chometz.

This Monday night at 8:30 PM, I will be giving a class entitled “Getting Pesach Right”.  Many halachic and common sense tips will be given to make Pesach and the weeks leading up to it, more optimal, in terms of halacha and quality of life.  Men and women are encouraged to attend.

Rosh Chodesh Nissan is this Tuesday.

Shabbos Hagadol, April 15-16, the Shul will have both Friday Night and Shabbos Day meals, by reservation only. Please call or email the office by this Monday to make your reservations. 

Wine orders: Please contact the office if you wish to order wine for Pesach.

Good Shabbos
Rabbi Davidovich
