This Shabbos and Sunday is Rosh Chodesh Elul. That means Rosh Hashana is one month away.

The shul is making a wine order. Please place your order with Esther by September 19th at noon.

Please call the office to reserve your seats, place names of loved ones in the Yizkor Book, and reserve babysitting. Children who are not enrolled in babysitting ahead of time will not be able to use the service.

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)…

"[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 contact the office office, or Martin Lipman at Martin.Lipman

Starting this Sunday, in the spirit of Elul, I will once again type up some of my Torah thoughts on a website, called "This Shiur is About You". Anyone who is interested in following my posts should go to, and sign up to receive emails of the newest posts.
