*NEW* Hamachi Delivery for Young Professionals!
Thursday, March 19, 6:00 - 7:30 PM
Dear YPs,

We’re working hard to think of ways to make this social distancing less monotonous as well as ways to support the community, our YP community, as well as the larger Jewish community.
As you know, restaurants have been shut down and are only offering delivery and pick-up options. If you’re getting bored at home and looking for a way to spice things up, consider picking up or ordering delivery from Milt’s or another local restaurant. Plan a fun night with friends where you both order and then video-call while you share dinner!
With that said, this Thursday we’re bringing you an extra treat: Hamachi sushi delivery from the YPs!
The plan is:
Call Hamachi today or tomorrow between 12:00 and 8:00 PM (773-293-6904) and say you’d like to place an order under the ASBI YP pickup for Thursday at 5:30 PM. Give them your name and pay over the phone.
Once you've placed your order, let Elana Pentelnik ( elana.pentelnik@gmail.com) know your order and your address and a YP will deliver your order Thursday between 6:00 and 7:30 PM.
We hope this will bring some fun to social distancing!
-ASBI YP Committee

Please note : This delivery opportunity is currently for YPs only.

Daily Mishnah Learning
Everyone is invited to join Rabbi Wolkenfeld at 7:30 AM Monday through Friday and 8:30 AM on Sunday to learn Mishnayot. We will be learning the Mishnayot of Tractate Shabbat, found here. This learning is designed specifically for those who are missing Kaddish due to the cancellation of our Minyanim. The learning will be dedicated to the memory of all the Yahrtzeits in our shul as well as all the people on our daily Kaddish list. Participants will be invited to share names of anyone they are mourning, remembering, or davening for through our joint learning.
