Moatza'ei Shabbos Learning Program Delays World Series

Close to 60 people joined together to make the first Moatza'ei Shabbos Learning a smashing success. In fact the tremendous Mesiras Nefesh resulted in Game 3 of the World Series being delayed by rain until the learning was over.


Yasher Koach to all who joined and please join us in the weeks to come.


This picture shows that Torah and Kemach are a winning combination.

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.
