May Hashem console the entire Ellis family among those that mourn for Zion and Jerusalem.

Thank you: to the Hashkama Minyan for sponsoring Seudah Shlishit this week in gratitude to the Lebovitz family for all they have contributed to the community. The Leibovitz family will be returning to Israel this summer and we wish them Tzeeitchem l’shalom and all the best.

Shabbat Afternoon Shiur: Rabbi Segal will give a Shabbat afternoon shiur at 7:00pm on “The Kashrut of Wine and Alcoholic Beverages and the nature of Rabbinic Decrees to Avoid Intermarriage.”

Beth El Ambucycle News Update: The ambucycle which our community has graciously donated, has been put into service in Jerusalem and has been assigned to medic Yossi Polishuk, the United Hatzalah regional director of the North Jerusalem neighborhood of Neve Yaakov. United Hatzaloh is providing ongoing updates as to the activities of our ambucycle. Please see back for their latest update and pictures.

The Three Weeks: We are currently observing the three weeks which will last until the morning of July 23rd. Weddings, parties and other festive events are not scheduled nor participated in. Haircutting is also restricted during this period.

The Nine Days will begin this Thursday evening, July 12th after sunset (first day of Av) and will extend until the morning of July 23rd. During this period, the following restrictions apply:

1. No meat may be eaten nor wine consumed, except on Shabbat.

2. Recreational (as opposed to instructional) swimming and bathing for pleasure (as opposed to hygiene) should not take place.

3. No laundry should be washed except children's clothing. (This restriction is lifted on the evening of July 22nd)

Summer Seudah Shlishiet: With the long summer days already here, what better way to spend a late Shabbat afternoon than in the company of good friends and with words of Torah. To become a sponsor  or for more information, contact Bruce Gillers at
