We have Two Anonymous sponsors this Shabbos: as an expression of Hakaras HaTov to the Rav, and as a זכות that Klal Yisrael should very soon be able to be m’kayeim the mitzvos of תרומות and מעשרות in Eretz Yisrael.
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 (email@example.com) or by phone (718-263-5301) to sponsor S'udah Sh'lishis or to add your name to the Pinch Hitters list.
