Policy for Children at the Minyan
We ask that parents please keep their children inside the shul on Friday nights and not congregate on Wetherly Drive. For Shabbat day we have hired an aide to monitor the children from 10am-12:30pm. Before and after these hours, we ask that children please stay inside the shul. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

House & Restroom Policy
We are tremendously grateful to the Fried family for allowing us to gather, eat, drink, dance, sing, learn, celebrate and pray in their peaceful and private backyard. We ask that everyone please respect their request to not enter the home. Happy Minyan provides a portable restroom delivered fresh and new each week, located on the front driveway.

Parshas Zachor, Deuteronomy 25:17–19
This being the Shabbat before Purim, on which we celebrate the foiling of Haman the Amalekite’s plot to destroy the Jewish people, the weekly Parshah is supplemented with the “Zachor” reading (Deuteronomy 25:17–19) in which we are commanded to remember the evil of Amalek and to eradicate it from the face of the earth.

Remember what Amalek did to you on the road, on your way out of Egypt. That he encountered you on the way and cut off those lagging to your rear, when you were tired and exhausted; he did not fear G‑d. And it shall come to pass, when the L‑rd your G‑dhas given you rest from all your enemies round about, in the land which the L‑rd your G‑d is giving you for an inheritance to possess it, that you shall obliterate the memory of Amalek from under the heavens. Do not forget.

Reb Shlomo Carlebach zt"l 
Parsha Vayikra & Purim
(Via Stuie Wax)

'And the Lord called unto Moses, and spoke unto him out of the tent of meeting, saying.'
The Medrish asks, why is the letter Alef in Vayikra smaller than the other letters? The reason, our Sages teach, is because Moshe was extremely humble and wanted to write the word without an Alef so that it would read Vayaker - the same word which was used when Hashem appeared to Balaam, and one which implies a purely chance event. Hashem insisted that the word be Vayikra "And he called" to show Hashem's love of Moshe. Moshe felt uncomfortable, so a compromise was reached and Moshe wrote it with a little Alef.

Reb Simcha Bunim of Pshischa teaches that even though Moshe attained the greatest heights, he was unmoved by that and remained as humble as ever. When a person stands at the top of a mountain, he doesn't boast about how tall he is because it is the mountain which makes him tall. Moshe felt that whatever he had accomplished was due to Hashem, and he had no reason to feel proud of his achievements.

Good Shabbos!

 On Purim, we do not send shelach manos ( humble gifts) face to face because we are telling each other "even behind your back, I will not speak evil about you."

You know, when I want to send a gift to the Queen of England, I cannot
send an apple or a piece of cake. Why? Because we are not close
enough. But on Purim, I am sending you an apple or a piece of cake
because it coming from the deepest depths of me to the deepest
depths of you. It shows how close we really are. All the Rebbes said
that Shalach Manos can be more healing than the blessings of the biggest Rebbes, depending on how much love you are sending with it. On Purim we are fixing the world.
Good Purim!
