Masks On! We are carefully monitoring the constantly-changing path of Covid-19 and consulting with our medical advisors. This Shabbat we will continue to wear our masks. We expect everyone present, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth while inside the building. Kiddushes will be held in our Sukkah.


Friday Night Kiddush has been provided by the house.


Shabbat Morning Kiddush has been sponsored by Avi Beluca in gratitude for his Chatan Torah Honor.


Shabbat Afternoon Services are Back! For the foreseeable future, we will be davening Shabbat Mincha and Maariv together with Rabbi Joe Wolfson and his students. Seudah Shelishit will generally be offered, but its availability and location will depend upon local COVID positivity rates and weather. This week's Seudah Shelishit will be served outside.






We wish a Mazal Tov to our Simchat Torah Honorees:

  • Avi Beluca, Chatan Torah
  • Kenny "The Kohen" Canfield, Chatan Beraishit
  • Evan Gasman, Kol HaNearim

We wish a Mazal Tov to Agita & Jonathan Falik upon Ryan's Bar Mitzvah.


With sadness we note the passing of Rabbi Dr. Moshe Dovid Tendler, Rosh Yeshiva and Professor of Biology at Yeshiva University, and Rabbi of the Community Synagogue of Monsey. Rabbi Dr. Tendler was the personification of Torah u'Madda; an outstanding Torah scholar, a devoted student of Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik, and the son-in-law of Rabbi Moshe Feinstein. May his family and students be comforted amongst the mourners of Zion & Jerusalem.


Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah were beautiful and well-attended.

  • We are especially grateful to Cantor Raphael Frieder for his beautiful Tefillat Geshem,
  • our Gabbaim (Elie Yudewitz and Choni Bellino) who effortless organized efficient services, 
  • our Torah Readers (Keshet Bellino, Cori Robinson, Elizabeth Ehrlich, Rachel Pezzlo, Elie Yudewitz, Neil Kitainik, Rabbi Bellino, Choni Bellino, and David Waxman). 
  • Shelly & Elie Yudewitz for sponsoring the Super-Secret Pre-Hakkafot BreakfastAlan "Bubbles" Schwartz for sponsoring the Children's Hakkafa, as well as to Dana Friedman, Dina & Kenny "The Kohein" Canfield, Jason Ackerman, Aaron Senior, and Tali & David Neuhaus for contributing toward the festivities.
