We extend our sincerest condolences to Rachel Ashendorf and the Ashendorf family
on the passing of Rachel's beloved father, Mr. Azriel Feiner ‫ז"ל‬.
We are privileged to host Rabbi Dr. Yisrael Rothwachs, Dean of Sinai Schools, at Shalosh Seduos this Shabbos.
He will speak on the topic of "Communal Sensitivity to Families of Children with Special Needs".
Both men and women are invited.
Parent-Child Learning this Motzei Shabbos is at 7:00 PM and is sponsored by the Pfeiffer’s.
The night will begin with learning in the sanctuary, followed by pizza and a raffle in the kiddush room.
All children are encouraged to attend this fun and meaningful event with one or more parent.
Our FINAL Parent-Child Learning will be held in 2 weeks, Motzei Shabbos February 14th, and the Shul is looking for sponsors
for these next 2 weeks.
We have the opportunity to host the well-known singer Shim Craimer on the first Shabbos in the beginning of March. In
addition to leading tefilos, he would lead the singing at a Friday night oneg and at Shalosh Seudos. We are looking for
sponsors who would like to contribute to what we hope will be an inspiring and uplifting Shabbos. Please email Yisroel
Hochberg if you would like to contribute. Thanks.

Our Sisterhood arranges meals for members with new babies. If you are interested in making a meal or would like to have meals
arranged for your family, please contact Rachel Neufeld ([email protected]) or Daffy Yahalom ([email protected]).
To get involved in the sisterhood please email Sarit Glass and Esther Slomnicki at [email protected]
Welcoming Committee: There have been many new faces in our shul over the course of the past few months. In order to make it
easier for new families to be properly welcomed, we have created this new email account. We ask all of you to join in our efforts by
contacting Chavi Satz or Leah Gottlieb at [email protected] if you know of a new family that has moved into the
community. Another initiative that we would like to institute is to ensure that each new BMOB family be welcomed into the home of a
current BMOB family for a shabbos meal. If you would be interested in hosting a new family at any point (this is not a commitment),
please email the welcoming committee to gather your information.
With your help, we look forward to continuing our efforts to establish a warm and welcoming shul.
