S'udah Sh'lishis Sponsors
Herb Leventer is sponsoring this week as a Pinch Hitter.
S'udah Sh'lishis is a great way to commemorate a Yahrzeit or celebrate a Simchah. Even if you don't have an event, joining our Pinch Hitters list helps our Shul when no other sponsors have volunteered. Please contact Geoffrey Landau by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (718-263-5301) to sponsor S'udah Sh'lishis or to add your name to the Pinch Hitters list.
Motza’ei Shabbos Learning Program
Please join us in this tremendously successful program (we’re up to 12 pizzas, and a number of people didn’t eat). This week, the doors will open at 6:55 with pizza served at 7:45. Bring a friend, bring your children, or come alone. (Please be aware of when you ended eating fleishig.) Contact Mark or Barry if you want to sponsor this week and/or future weeks.
SHABBOS M’VORCHIM KIDDUSH
The next Shabbos M’vorchim Kiddush will take place on Shabbas Chanukah I (Parshas VaYeishev, December 12).
Sponsorship is $100. If you are interested in sponsoring, be it for a Simchah or a Yahrzeit, see or call Yoni Platovsky (718-459-2290) or Jay Daitchman (718-263-1688).
