First Night of Sukkos - Halachic Rain Advisory

First Night of Sukkos - Halachic Rain Advisory

From Rabbi Welcher

For people who are not eating alone.

If it rains tonight on the first night of Succos:

- Wait 20 minutes from when you're ready to go into the Sukkah.

- If it doesn't stop raining, make kiddush, wash and eat a kezayis in the Sukkah without a L'eshev B'Sukkah and eat your meal in your house.

- If it stops raining at some point, go out and eat a kezayis with a L'eshev B'Sukkah and the meal can be finished inside the house.

- You can bentsch inside your house if you ate your meal inside your house.

- It is stops raining after you've bentsched, you should eat a kezayis with a L'eshev B'Sukkah at some point in the night.

Also note that on Shabbos you should start Shalosh Seudos by 3:40 PM.

Congratulations to the Junior Division Little League Team B on capturing the JCLL Tier B Championship


Congratulations to the Junior Division Little League Team B on capturing the JCLL Tier B Championship this past Sunday with a solid 6-1 win over the extremely mentschlich Young Israel of Plainview!

Mazel tov to team members Dovid Abramovitz, Yaakov Biderman, Ari Glaser, Chaim Yosef Halberstam, Boruch Herskowitz, Yehuda Inslicht, Aryeh Linn, Yehuda Mittel, Binyomin Musheyev, Yosef Naiman, Moshe Septimus and Yosef Chaim Septimus. A special mazal tov goes to game-ball winners Boruch Herskowitz and Yosef Chaim Septimus.

The team played and looked every bit like champs with a superlative pitching performance by Boruch Herskowitz, who pitched a brilliant complete game striking out more than 10 batters while scattering several hits and surrendering only one run.

Behind Herskowitz was an impressive and outstanding defense by both the infield and outfield. Of course, the team received quality at-bats earning many walks and very timely hitting by Yosef Chaim Septimus, Aryeh Linn and Dovid Abramowitz. Combined with a picture-perfect bunt with two on by Yehuda Inslicht, who then reached safely, and a long RBI sac-fly by Yaakov Biderman, AY-B put the game safely out of reach by the fifth inning.

A tremendous Yasher Koach goes to the team’s co-managers, Chayim Herskowitz and David Linn, for all their patience and skill in coaching these boys over the past several years, and to their assistant coach, Aryeh Goldschein.
