Heights Jewish Center’s 150th Anniversary Banquet is just a few weeks away, Tuesday May 24 at 6pm. We will be honoring Rabbi Schur’s memory, recognizing Alex Adelman and Lena Katz for their many years of service to the shul, and expressing our gratitude to Rabbis Burnstein, Granatstein and Katz who were of great assistance to the shul after Rabbi Schur’s passing.  In addition, I will be formally installed.  The keynote speaker will be Rabbi Tzvi Schur. We look forward to everyone’s participation.  To RSVP or to be included in the journal, please contact the office at office@hjcs.org or 216-382-1958.

HJC News – Metzora

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

This week at Shalosh Seudos we will discuss Rabbi Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, Rav of Boston and Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva University.

This Sunday April 10, between 10am and 1pm, there will be a Hagolas Keilim (Kashering of Utensils) at the Mosdos Boys Building, 1508 Warrensville Center Road (formerly Warrensville Synagogue). Only metal and wood utensils will be kashered.  “Each item must be thoroughly cleaned and scrubbed beforehand so that no food traces remain, and there should be no hot contact (dishwasher included) in the 24 hours prior to kashering.   Requested donation : $10 to help defray costs.”  

I will be available all next week, by morning appointment as well as after Maariv for arrangements to sell your Chometz.

Good Shabbos
