Erev Shabbat HaGadol Message from Rabbi Segal: This afternoon at 5pm, Rabbi Segal will deliver an Erev Shabbat HaGadol message over Zoom. The link to sign in is https://zoom.us/j/873974808?pwd=Zm5VT3pkRVpkUUNWaWVva2FzWE92UT09.
Mazal Tov: It is with great joy that we share with you the birth of a baby girl to Beth and Josh Sydney. Mazel tov to the entire Sydney family. May they raise her to Torah, Chupah and Ma'asim Tovim.
Covid Chesed Intervention Committee: Beth El has established a chesed committee to help those who are more susceptible with shopping and other needs. This week the committee was in full gear with Pesach almost here. We coordinated a communal Butcherie order for people who had small orders and our volunteers delivered to those that ordered. We appreciate and would like to thank all the volunteers for their help. If you would like to become a volunteer or if you would like to request help, please contact the shul office at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are contacted by a member of the committee and offered help, please do not hesitate to accept it. If you have not been contacted and could benefit from some help with grocery shopping etc. please contact the shul office.
Mechirat Chametz: The selling of one’s chametz is usually done in person. However, due to the public health crises this year, you may appoint Rabbi Segal as your agent to sell your chametz online by completing the form at https://forms.gle/Lh9LqNLLxKXhrJ777. All forms must be completed and submitted no later than Monday, April 6th at 11:30pm.
Maot Chittim: It is customary to contribute to Maot Chittim in the weeks leading up to Pesach in order to help those in need in making Pesach. This year, the need is even greater due to the economic loss many families have incurred due to the Coronavirus. Please donate at https://pesachdonate.bethelnewton.org/.
Semichat Chaver: There will be no Semichat Chaver chaburah this week, however, there will be a virtual Semichat Chaver chaburah on Monday evening of chol hamoed Pesach, April 13th at 8:00pm. A link to the zoom session will be sent out by email. We are learning Hilchot Shabbat this semester. For more information please contact Rabbi Segal at email@example.com.
