  • Heights Jewish Center is holding a  “Spruce up the Shul in Elul” event on Sunday September 13th. From 9am to 3pm, our doors will be open and members of our community are invited to pitch in and help us tackle small projects designed to maintain or repair our building. You don’t need to know how to swing a hammer or lift heavy objects:  there are projects to organize, clean and repair things so that our Shul is sparkling for the holidays.

[To prepare for the cleaning and organizing, we ask that you take a moment to peruse the cloakroom and remove any belongings. On that Sunday the 13th, all coats, scarves, shoes, hats, and any other clothing, which is hanging in our coat rooms and has not been claimed or otherwise marked as belonging to YOU, will be declared Hefker, and will be donated to a Gemach, or otherwise disposed of.  ]

As you know, in Elul we increase our mitzvos, including the giving of tzedakah. Tzedakah can be your time as well as money. We ask that you join us, even if you only have an hour or two, have the opportunity to get to know the other members and contribute to our shul in a meaningful way. If you are unable to attend but would like to make a donation, the money will be used to purchase the supplies to clean and repair on that day.

  • This Tuesday at 8:15PM, September 15, after Maariv, we will have the third of the 3-part special class:  “Enhance Your Yamim Noraim”, less than 45 minutes long.  We will explore the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur davening and their connection to our Emunah, especially the Rambam’s 13 Ikrei Emunah.

Good Shabbos
Rabbi Davidovich
