2. We will study Daf Yomi mesechta eiruvin this shabbos afternoon between mincha and maariv. This shabbos, the very first on calendar year 5781, we are especially encouraged to study Torah. Let’s accumulate all the merit of limud Torah b’rabim before the yom hadin.
3. We are completely SOLD OUT for yom kippur in our amazing outdoor tent minyan! I am pleased to announce that close to 250 people have reserved seats and during the neilah service, we will swell to over 300 people at Congregation Ohav Sholom.
4. Thanks to the genius of board member Jeremy Sanders, each participant will be safely distanced 6 feet from each other and spread throughout the street, under tents and canopies, or protected by scaffolding. Our minyan will now safely extend eastward towards Broadway.
5. It is now safe to say that Ohav Sholom enjoyed the most amazing rosh hashanah davening in New York City! What an incredible and inspiring experience for hundreds of seated and adjoining and proud Jewish onlookers. It is my goal to exceed this with our upcoming yom kippur mega event.
