Mark the Date—Elul Program!

The Sarah & Sol Sacks Memorial Elul Program will take place on Shabbos, August 14, iyH. Rabbi David Claman, of Columbus, OH, will deliver two lectures: ‘Using Our “Get out of Jail Free” Card’, and ‘Commodities & Futures: An
Investment Portfolio for 5782’. The Deluxe Kiddush Luncheon will be catered by Keisari Catering, with the first lecture following the luncheon & the second at 7:15 p.m. We thank the Sacks family for helping to sponsor this event. Although this program is substantially underwritten by the Sacks family, it does not cover the entire cost of the program. Therefore, we would respectfully ask that you consider being a sponsor from among the following categories: Gold: $100; Silver: $50; Bronze: $36. The names of the sponsors will be prominently displayed in the Shabbos Announcements & in the Social hall.

We are delighted to announce, that we will be davening this evening in the newly renovated Sanctuary! The Shul has a beautiful new look. See the pictures here: 1, 2, 3, 4.

It was very memorable to see how immediately after Havdalah, at the end of Pesach, we were already transitioning from the old to the new, with the removal of the Siddurim & Chumashim to make way for the new carpeting and seating. It was a remarkable sight to see the impressive coordination; as the last bit of carpeting was being laid, the new seats were already being brought in.

We express our utmost gratitude to all the generous donors, a list of whom can be found below. Also, we thank Simon Katz, Jeremy Hull & Saar Alkobi, for their help in overseeing the project from start to finish. In addition, we thank Saar Alkobi, Rick Bentley, Matt Hildebrand, Jeremy Hull, Israel Keisari, Miles Kerr-Jarrett, Chaim Winter, Shoshi Yaari & Michael Zelikovich for their volunteer efforts.

If you have not yet pledged, it is not too late to become a part of this historical project, as we still owe approximately $40,000. A graph depicting the fundraising project is pictured here.

We hope that the new look & ambiance that has been created will inspire all of us to meaningful services, and that the Almighty will receive favorably all our worthy prayers.
