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. This week, the doors will open at 8:00 pm with pizza served at 8:50 pm. Bring a friend, bring your children, or come alone. Contact Mark or Barry if you wish to sponsor.
The Leaning Program is sponsored this week by Simcha & Adina Shapiro.
NEXT SHABBOS M’VORCHIM KIDDUSH
The next Shabbos M’vorchim Kiddush is scheduled to take place on Shabbos, Parshas Toldos (Nov. 6). 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 Barry Simanowitz (718-263-1816).
