Please call or contact the office ASAP to order Lulavim sets for Succos.

Aliyos for Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur:

The Mishna Berura quotes the great compendium on all Yomim Noraim matters, the Mateh Ephraim, as follows:  

“It is appropriate for every G-d fearing man to make an effort to get an Aliyah on the Yomim Noraim (Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur). Even in places where the Aliyos are usually auctioned off [to the wealthy], one should “purchase” an Aliya for that time of year for as much as his means allow.  

“[And lest one think that there is something degrading about purchasing an Aliyah at such a holy time of year, the truth is] just the opposite: There is greater spiritual advantage in a Mitzvah that comes one’s way through monetary expenditure than in a Mitzvah that has come one’s way free of charge.”

If you are interested in taking the initiative in acquiring this merit for yourself or someone else and investing in our Kehilla at the same time, please call the office (216-382-1958), or contact Martin Lipman at
