Friday Night Minyan at 5:15pm Through the Winter (Plus Mishnah Shiur at 4:45pm)

We’re starting a new Winter tradition: Kabbalat Shabbat services will begin Friday night at 5:15pm every week through the Winter months, until otherwise announced, and Rabbi Bodner will be giving an informal mishnah shiur before services, beginning at 4:45pm each Friday. Join us for mishna learning, followed by a lively davening, with good people, words of Torah from Rabbi Bodner, and a Scotch kiddush after services to wash it all down.

(Please daven Mincha before coming to shul.)

If you would like to sponsor food for a Friday night kiddush, please email Penina Seidman at If you would like to sponsor liquid refreshments, bring a bottle or two of your choice!

Rabbi’s Weekly Shiur: Wednesdays at 7:30pm

Please join us tonight and every Wednesday at 7:30pm at the shul for Rabbi Bodner’s weekly class. We begin on Wednesday, Nov. 26, with the first installment in a series on Chanukah.
