Parshas Tetzaveh 
Shabbos Zachor 
March 6-7 , 2020
11 Adar, 5780
 Shalom and hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. 

This shabbos is the second of a series of special Torah readings called Zachor , in which we read of our infamous war with Amalek , the archenemy of the Jews, and the generational mitzvah to eliminate this formidable foe. The reading is performed prior to Purim so as to connect the wicked Haman to his ancestral people.

Every man, woman, and child is required to hear parshas zachor read aloud in shul. Please come early shabbos morning as we expect to read zachor at approximately 10:30am. Coffee (for all) and cake (for women and children) will be served before davening. 

As always, enjoy a wonderful hot gala kiddush following davening at approximately 11:15 AM. 

If you would like to sponsor a shabbos kiddush or any shiur either to celebrate a life cycle event or just to be generous and help the shul, please let the office know ASAP.

Thank you and  tiskel l’mitzvos!
