9 Av

  • The Shul will be dimmed during Eichah reading and candles will be supplied.
  • The benches on the women’s section will be moved out before Shabbos.  Chairs and tables will be moved in. The tables will be taken out on Motzash.
  • The benches on the men’s side will not be moved.

Davening Changes

  • The Vaad decided not to have an 8:45 Shacharis during Bein Hazmanim because of interference with other Shiurim/learning and lack of A/C in Annex.
  • The Vaad decided that the first Maariv will remain at 20:00 and not keep moving back earlier.  After summer time ends, there will be three Maariv Minyanim – 19:00, 20:00, and 21:00.
