Shalom and hello ! I hope you are healthy and doing well.

Thanks to all who participated at Ohav Sholom’s Shemini Atzeres/Simchas Torah 5781 extravaganza!

After a successful succos, enjoying our brand new wood succah, and complemented with a delicious hot kiddush every day yom tov, the bar was raised pretty high for the second days yom tov.

I am here to inform you that we enjoyed lively hakafos, spirited dancing, ice cream and cake during aliyos, gala hot kiddush/luncheon after davening, and much more!

A big yasher koach to our distinguished chassanim, baal koreh, gaba’aim, and everyone who made Simchas Torah 5781 a huge success!
This shabbos is parshas Bereshis!
Join Ohav Sholom as we start the reading the Torah anew. Also enjoy a wonderful kiddush complete with individually wrapped black and whites, danishes and cakes! 
This week is shabbos mevorchim chodesh (mar) cheshvan and rosh chodesh is Sunday and Monday. Sunday shacharis is 8:30 AM and Monday 7:00 AM.
Have a wonderful Shabbos!
