A Note from the Rabbi on Tevilat Keilim
We need to reserve the mikveh for essential use only for women.
If you buy new pots or utensils (made of glass or metal) that would normally require toiveling in a mikvah, Rabbi Finkelstein will advise you how to use a special loophole for this year, so you won't have to take them to the mikveh.
Call Rabbi Finkelstein directly to find out how at 901-490-9854.
Reminder about the
Sale of Chametz
No Jew should own any chametz after Wednesday, April 8th, 2020 11:45 a.m.

It would be preferable to appoint the Rabbi in person as your agent, however, this year, due to social distancing practices, we ask that you simply click the button below and fill out the form online to appoint Rabbi Yona Reiss of the CRC to facilitate the sale.

If you experience any problems with this online form you may download the form & send it to the shul office.
