Rabbi’s Message & YIGC Announcements for 10/19/19
I hope everyone is having a meaningful and enjoyable yom tov. As we prepare for Shabbos Chol Hamoed and Shmini Atzeres and Simchas Torah, I want to remind everyone about two new innovations that will be taking place in our shule over yom tov.
1. This year we are introducing a new special hakafos for our children. It will take place on Monday afternoon (Shmini Atzeres), at 5:00 PM. The program will be designed for the children, and candy will be given out then as well. This is a first for us and we are very excited about it. Thank you to the chairs of this event, Ari and Tamar Lasky.
2. In order to get to our hakafos on Simchas Torah night at an earlier time than in the past, we are moving our bidding for the honors we traditionally sell on Simchas Torah to between Mincha and Maariv, rather than after Maariv, as in the past. This will allow us to start the actual hakafos earlier, which will enable our children to participate in our regular hakafos as well. If you would like to participate in the bidding for the various honors that are sold for Simchas Torah, please make sure that you are present in shule between Mincha and Maariv on Momday night. Mincha will be at 6:15 PM, and the bidding will take place at the conclusion of Mincha.
Wishing everyone a great Shabbos and a Chag Someach. I look forward to seeing you.
