  • Mincha Erev Shabbos at 13:30 and 18:05
  • Gala Kiddush on Shabbos morning in honor of our two Chossonim: Rav Zachariash (Chosson Torah) and Shlomo Hollander (Chosson Bereishis).
  • Shabbos Shiurim:
    • The Rav’s shiur on Beis Elokim written by the Mabit takes place this and every Shabbos at about 08:05.
    • The Rav’s Pele Yoetz shiur returns for another season. The shiur meets each Shabbos afternoon 15 minutes before Maariv. It is open to both men and women. This week the shiur meets at 17:20 and will be on the topic of Ger.
  • Bein Hazmainim is over, and the following changes will take place:
    • 09:00 Shacharis will meet for the last time on Monday morning.
    • Mincha is fixed at 13:00 until the clocks change.
    • Maariv at 19:00 and 21:00 in the main Beis Medrash throughout the winter..
  • 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.

Good Shabbos!
