SHABBOS PARSHAS TETZAVEH; ZACHOR

9 Adar 5778, February 24, 2018

 

This Shabbos is called Shabbos Zachor.  It is very important that everyone comes to shul to hear the Torah reading of the special Maftir, as it is a fulfillment of a Biblical law.  Men have an obligation to fulfill this commandment and it is customary that women try to fulfill this commandment, when possible.

 

Life Cycle Events:

Mazel Tov to Rabbi Yaakov and Aliza Tanenbaum on the birth of a baby girl. The baby naming will take place this Shabbos at shul during Torah reading.

 

Parve Kiddush sponsored by:

BCMH Kiddush Committee. Cookies sponsored by Rabbi Yaakov and Aliza Tanenbaum in honor of their daughter’s baby naming

 

Note: Next week’s Kiddush will be a Meat Kiddush with the Meat Cholent sponsored by Rabbi Yaakov and Aliza Tanenbaum in honor of the birth of their daughter.

BCMH Fund Raising through Amazon

Amazon has a program of giving .5% of your purchase to the charity of your choice. Congregation Bikur Cholim is one of the charities. This is a great way to raise funds for the shul without incurring extra charges or financial burdens.

These are the steps:

  1. Go to Amazon Smile: https://smile.amazon.com/ & sign onto your account.
  2. Choose your charity (Congregation Bikur Cholim-Machzikay Hadath)
  3. In the future, sign on to Smile.Amazon.com to make sure .5% of your purchase goes to the shul. There is no extra charge for doing this; rather, it simply comes off the total you pay to Amazon. NOTE: You must sign on to Smile.Amazon.Com for the donation to be given. If you sign on to Amazon.Com or use your phone, the charity will not receive any credit.
