This Week at Ohel Shalom

Thank You and Welcome!
For over four years, our office and many events have been ably managed by our office manager, Mrs. Ayelet Sror. Now Mrs. Sror will BE”H be moving to a position elsewhere. Mrs. Sror has been a real asset to our Kehilla and we will miss her in the office. We wish her much success in her new position. BiHatzlacha!

As well, we welcome our new office manager, Mrs. Devora Stern. Mrs. Stern comes to us with many years experience as an office manager in Kehillot similar to ours. We look forward to working with her BE”H.

Please bear with us during this transition phase, as Mrs. Stern learns the ropes from Mrs. Sror. Your patience and understanding will be appreciated.

Kiddush Sponsorship

This week’s Kiddush is co-sponsored by Ms. Alize Frechette in honor of her son Caliel Zachai’s 3rd birthday, and Shimon and Devorah Ben Abu in honor of the Sheloshim of Devorah’s sister,¬†Rachel Sarah Seidman a”h. May her Neshama merit an Aliyah.

The Kehillah thanks the sponsors for their generosity.

Shabbat Groups

Please note that there will NOT be groups on Shavuot, June 9-10. Groups WILL BE”H be meeting this Shabbat, Parashat Bamidbar.

Shavuot THIS Motzaei Shabbat

Due to the fact that Shavu’ot begins on Motza’ai Shabbat, the Mincha for Shabbat will be earlier, at 2 pm. As well, there will be NO Se’udah Shilisheet in the Beit HaKinesset this week.

Do NOT light candles for the First Night of Shavu’ot (or make Yom Tov preparations) until Shabbat ends – meaning NO earlier than 9:15pm.

Please see “Upcoming Events” regarding the special learning sessions taking place over Shavu’ot as well as the Tefillah schedule. Please note that there is only one early Minyan for Shacharit on the first day of Shavu’ot.

As well, BE”H we will also hold a communal reading of the entire Sefer Tehillim on the second day at 5 pm. BE”H refreshments will be served. Please note that the Tehillim reading will be held in the Bet HaMedrash because the Sha’are Ezra Main Sanctuary will hold the women’s Shiur from Rabbi Raccah at 7 pm.
