S'udah Sh'lishis Sponsors
Anonymous Pinch Hitter is sponsoring this week.
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 still 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 wish to sponsor.
This week’s sponsor: David & Adina Braverman, in memory of Gershon Ben Avram
