We wish a Mazal Tov to Arezoo & Sam Jesselson on Arezoo’s appointment to the Board of Directors of SharsheretSharsheret, Hebrew for “chain,” is a national not-for-profit organization supporting young women and their families, of all Jewish backgrounds, facing breast cancer. Their mission is to offer a community of support to women diagnosed with breast cancer or at increased genetic risk, by fostering culturally-relevant individualized connections with networks of peers, health professionals, and related resources.

We wish a Mazal Tov to Daniella Sirotti on being honored at the Jewish Rennaisance Center Annual Dinner on Sunday, February 22.

The weekday Mincha/Maariv minyan has been struggling more and more. As a result, we have no choice but to cease to provide this service for the community, knowing that most times, we're not actually providing the service requested. After March 8, we will no longer offer a weekday Mincha/Maariv minyan. If you need to request a minyan, please check online for times at nearby synagogues, or use our Discussion Board. A separate email will go out soon.

Form a team with up to 4 of your nerdiest friends and see how you stack up! Pizza and beer will be served, and it's $20 per person, which goes to support the shul and community. RSVP required on the website:

Disco Fever... Dynomite! At 10:00 PM we will welcome the University of Purim, who will be hosting an additional party.
