Yizkor & Daily Mishnah Learning
Monday - Friday at 7:30 AM & Sunday at 8:30 AM
Mishnah Learning Includes Yizkor on Tuesday, April 14
Yizkor will be recited tomorrow, April 14 - incorporated into our daily Mishnah learning. All are welcome to join for Yizkor, even if you haven't previously participated in Mishnah Learning. Yizkor can also be recited by individuals on their own on Thursday morning, when it would typically be said in shul. Click here for the text for Yizkor.

Everyone is invited to join Rabbi Wolkenfeld 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 is 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.

Go On an Afikomen Hunt with ASBI!
You're invited to participate in ASBI’s Afikomen Hunt!

For both kids and kids-at-heart, there are nine matza buddies hidden around Lakeview - see if you can find them all! If you hunt during chol hamoed make sure to take pictures and tag ASBI.
The Afikomen Hunt will continue through the rest of Pesach and makes a great Yom Tov activity, as well. Happy Hunting!

The Chesed Committee is sending food to medical providers in the community over Pesach as our way to support them as they support all of us. The Chesed Committee is also working to bring basic supplies to older adults in the community who are not able to shop.

If you'd like to contribute to these efforts, please visit and select "Chesed Fund". If you are able to help with delivery of Chesed meals and food, please email Sara Wolkenfeld at
