    • The Rav will give his Pirkei Avos shiur on Shabbos afternoon immediately after the 17:35 Mincha (approximately 18:05). The Ezras Nashim will be open for women starting with Mincha at 17:40 through the end of the shiur.
    • SHABBOS SHMOOZE with Rabbi Moshe Dovid Cohen. This week’s shiur: Pitching and Partition Policies. The shiur is open to men and women and meets in the new room beginning at 17:05. This is the last shiur of the season.

    •  Tishrei 5779 Schedule is now available. Either download a copy from here or find a copy on the bima. There are many changes in davening due to Rosh Hashanah, Selichos, sunset, etc.
  • Mi Shebeirach for Cholim: Did you send in your names to Mrs. Zakoo, the Ahavas Shalom Administrative Assistant? Each week she will assemble the names into a typed list. If you didn’t make the deadline, please write this week to by Friday 11AM – we’ll extend the deadline this first week and have someone else add the names to the 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.
  • There are many new shiurim at Bet Zvi. See this week’s newsletter for details on two of them!
  • 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.
