HJC News – Balak

Refuah Sheleima to Helen Rothman.

Kiddush this Shabbos is sponsored by the Beer family in honor of Lenny’s mother Anna Beer’s special birthday.

This week, the Shabbos afternoon Navi Shiur wraps up Sefer Shmuel and will start Sefer Melachim.  Now is the perfect time to join.

At Shalosh Seudos we will continue to discuss Chapter 5 of Pirkei Avos and the life of Rabbeinu Tam.

Sunday July 17 at 9am, there will be a General Meeting of the Shul Membership. Breakfast will be served. The Nominating Committee will make its recommendations for Officers and Board Members ahead of the October Election. This meeting is the only opportunity for members to make nominations for the Board or officers.  All members of the Shul are encouraged to attend.

The Stone Setting for Sally Steiger will take place next Sunday July 17 at 10:30am at Bet Olam Cemetery, corner Chagrin and Richmond.

A week from this Tuesday, July 19 is Shiva Asar B’Tammuz, a fast day and the beginning of the Three Weeks period when the custom is not to get a haircut.  Barber Shops are closed on Sunday and Monday.  So if you plan on going to the barber, next Friday is the last practical time to do it.

Safety Reminder:  The school year is over and there are many children running and biking and playing all over.  Please drive more carefully than usual, and be especially careful when getting into and out of driveways.   Make sure that your children and grandchildren are especially careful when crossing streets and intersections.

The recordings of the three classes of the recent series “The Phenomenon of Baalei Teshuva – Halacha, Challenges and Successes” are now available online, for listening and download. Email me if you are interested.

Have a Good Shabbos.

Rabbi Davidovich
