This Week and Upcoming

Dear Ohev Tzedek Congregants and Friends:

Shabbat services (Torah portion: Miketz) will begin at 9:45 am. This Saturday, the Kiddush will be sponsored in honor of Caitlyn Ryan’s last day as Office Manager.

Join us Monday, December 25, at 11 am for the Ohev Tzedek tradition of a typical Jewish December 25: movies and Chinese food!  We will again be showing two movies: A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum, featuring Jewish comedians in two lead roles (Zero Mostel and Phil Silvers), and The Nutty Professor, to honor the passing of comedy legend Jerry Lewis. Stick around between showings for a special lunch of house-made Chinese, prepared by our own Chef Art Einzig. Lunch will be served at 12:30 pm. Movie admission is free, but a minimal fee will be charged for the meal (menu and price TBD). Please RSVP to the office by Monday, December 18.

Shabbat services on December 30 will be held at Heritage Manor at 9:30 am; there will be no services at Ohev Tzedek.

Dear Ohev Tzedek Congregants and Friends:

Please note that tomorrow is the last day to RSVP for the community Not-Quite-Hanukkah Hanukkah celebration on Sunday, December 10 at 5:30 pm. The celebration will be held at Congregation Rodef Sholom (1119 Elm St. at the corner of Elm and Woodbine). The party will include a gourmet salad bar and latkes, pizza and chips for the kids, sufganiyot and ice cream for dessert, musical entertainment, and a children’s program led by our Israeli schlichim, Gon and Shai Erez. The party will feature human dreidel, latke throw, jam jam, donut decorating, Hanukkah arts and crafts, and, of course, the now famous World Series of Dreidel! We will also be joined by MSJS students! If you call the Ohev Tzedek office, we will RSVP for everyone from the shul all at once.

This Week and Upcoming

Dear Ohev Tzedek Congregants and Friends:

It has been a real pleasure to see how many congregants have stepped forward during this time of transition to lead our services. Many people have expressed an interest in learning to lead various parts of the Shabbat morning service including:

  • Birkot Hashachar & P’sukei d’zimrah (early morning service)
  • Shacharit
  • Torah service
  • Torah reading
  • Haftorah reading
  • Musaf

Please email Sandy Kessler (sjkes@aol.com) to let him know if you are interested in pursuing this and, if so, which of the parts you would like to learn. We’ll then arrange an organizational meeting time to work out the time details.
