  • Israel returns to Standard Time on Motza’ei Shabbos at 02:00. Remember to set your clocks back one hour before going to sleep! The change in time will result several changes in the schedule including
    • Weekday Mincha at 12:45
    • Erev Shabbos Mincha at 12:30
    • Shabbos Day Mincha at 13:00
    • See the announcement in the newsletter for further information.
  • What will YOU do with YOUR extra HOUR on Motza’ei Shabbos? Why not spending it learning a mesechta with your kehilla, followed by a siyum. The program begins at 21:45. Siyum at 22:45!
  • Mi Shebeirach for Cholim: Did you send in your names to Mrs. Zakoo, the Ahavas Shalom Administrative Assistant? Each Thursday she will assemble the names into a typed list (Mrs. Zakoo does not work on Fridays). Remember, on Shabbos day, we ask that you do NOT approach the gabbai and whisper names in his ear – unless it is for a person whose illness began after the above deadline.
  • American Friends of Ahavas Shalom Inc. (a 501c3 Corporation in New York State) is now up and running. Donations are deductible as per the USA Tax Law. See for details about donations.
  • Contact Mrs. Miriam Zakoo, the Ahavas Shalom Administrative Secretary, to pay your membership dues or make a donation to the Kehilla.
