HJC News – Nitzavim Vayeilech

Welcome to Rabbi Hanoch Teller who will be our Scholar-in-Residence this Shabbos and Motzoei Shabbos for Selichos.  All of Rabbi Teller’s talks are open to the entire community. Only the actual luncheon itself is by Reservation only. 

Please pay close attention to this week’s schedule as it appears in this email. There are a number of changes to the ordinary weekday schedule. 

The Shul Office will be open Sunday and Monday, 9am-12noon.

Childcare is available Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur by pre-paid reservation only.  Please contact the office to reserve.  The shul will have babysitting for the younger children, while Aish HaTorah will have a program for the older children.

Aliyos for Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur:

The Mishna Berura (Ch.584:S.K.8) 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.”

In the coming days, representatives of the shul will be offering some of you the opportunity to “purchase” an aliyah for the upcoming Yomim Tovim.  They will not be able to contact everyone.  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
