Of Locks and Keys and Security – 2nd Notice

Over the past few months you may have noticed work being done on our building. We have upgraded and added security systems to protect all of us. As part of this process we have rekeyed the exterior locks and the old key no longer works to those locks. In the coming week, we will change the combination of the alley door.

If you find that your key no longer works or that the combination you enter does not unlock the door, do not use force on the lock. The lock is not broken; it is just that you don’t have a current key or combination.

If you need to be able to gain access to the building at times when it is not open to the public, please speak to Rabbi Yosef Posner about getting a new key. If your usual means of entry is via the combination lock, the new combination is ●,●,●,●. If your computer does not have the security clearance to read that encrypted combination, please speak to Rabbi Yosef Posner.

Breakfast and Learning for Men

There will be a breakfast for men at Shul on January 13, 2013, 9:00 a.m.- 10:00 a.m. Rabbi Posner will discuss some interesting Halacha of Business case studies. We thank Hiam Naiditch for being the driving force behind this event, and his committee of Yehuda Leib Burgeman, Evan Loiterman, Rob Phillips, Dr. Berel Polisky, Steve Rosenberg.

More Thank Yous

We thank the following for helping to make the Chanukah Lounge the success that it was:

Tiffany and Shlomi Fedida, Rivkah Kaplan, Aryeh Kitzes, Ellen J. Levine, Chaya Phillips, Mushkie Raices, Ellyn Scheer, Sanford Schwartz, Judi Superstein, Shmuli and Yossi Telsner.

Kiddush Committee News

Thank you to the salad committee of Friedman & Scheer for making our Kiddush salads. This week’s salads are: scrumptious coleslaw, mouthwatering egg salad with pickle relish, enjoyable sweet corn salad with grapes, and everyone's favorite, Israeli salad with olives and pickles. There will also be special Chanukah treats provided by the sponsors.

Kiddush Sponsors

Dave and Gail Goldberg in honor of his father's Yahrzeit and in memory of Manny Scheer, and Marty and Terry Stub in honor of their first anniversary.

Timely Reminders

This Friday is the beginning of the Hebrew month of Teves.

Chanukah continues through Sunday. Friday, we light the Chanuka Menorah before the Shabbos candles. The Chanukah candles have to burn for at least a half hour after dark, which is about an hour and a half in total. Ordinary Chanukah candles will not burn that long. Suggestion: use oil, Shabbos candles, or tea lights. After Shabbos, light the Chanukah candles after Havdalah. For detailed instructions on how to light your menorah and more about Chanukah, read here.

Earliest Tallis: on Mon: 6:17 am - Fri: 6:19 am 
*) The time we are posting is primarily with our weekday 6:30 minyan attendees in mind. If someone must daven earlier, please be aware that there are other opinions of how to calculate this.

Tuesday, the Fifth of Teves, is celebrated by Chasidim as the day on which the federal courts recognized ownership of the Previous Rebbe's library by Agudas Chasidei Chabad and by extension rejected challenges to the authenticity of the Rebbe's leadership. The Rebbe declared that this day is an auspicious time especially to add to one's personal library of Torah books. To read more about Hey Teves, click here.
