This Shabbat we are honored to welcome Rabbi Yehuda Sarna. Rabbi Sarna is Rabbi/ Executive Director of the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at New York University as well as University Chaplain. He will deliver the sermon at 10:30 AM.

Pesach is less than 4 weeks away. Power of Attorney forms for the sale of Chametz may be found here. Although there is a widespread custom to pay the rabbi who facilitates the sale of chametz, Rabbi Bellino urges that you not do so. Instead, please feel free (but not obligated) to contribute to his Discretionary Fund. The most convenient way to do so is online. Be sure to specify that this is a Pesach donation to the Discretionary Fund.

Another reminder that the weekday Mincha/Maariv minyan has been cancelled due to attendance struggles. If you need to request a minyan, please check online for times at nearby synagogues, or use our Discussion Board.

We are proud to be a member synagogue of The Downtown Va'ad, an Orthodox rabbinic network, founded by Rabbis Sarna & Bellino, intended to advance the welfare and flourishing of the Downtown Jewish community. For more information or to learn about Downtown happenings and collaborative efforts, follow the Va'ad on Facebook.



Foundations will meet this Wednesday at 6:30 PM for Hebrew reading and 7:00 PM to study the laws and thought of Passover. Thought of Maimonides will meet this Wednesday at 8:00 PM and will continue Maimonides' Guide of the Perplexed. Course materials may be downloaded from our website.
