Some additional information for our congregants.

First, in case you missed today’s synagogue email, the main driveway is being rebuilt this week, so the 13 Mile Road driveway is not accessible.  Please do not try to drive in or out of that access.

Park in the East parking lot (the one backing to the nursing home) and use the entrance at the end of the long walkway (with the powered doors).

 

Second, I’ve been asked to pass along that Dubin Cleaners offers free dry-cleaning of your tallit throughout the year.  Dubin Cleaners is located on the west side of Orchard Lake Rd, north of 13 Mile.  Please tell them you received word of this through your membership at Adat Shalom.

 

Third, we are now making use of our texting system when we need help with our daily minyanim.  If you live mearby and can help our occasionally on very short notice, please add your name to our list.  If you need instructions on signing up, please call Caren Harwood and she’ll walk you through the process.  You will need the ability to send and receive “text” messages on your mobile phone.

 

Fourth, while summer draws to a close and our Saturday afternoon minyan begins earlier (8:15 p.m. this week), we can still use assistance with minyan on Saturday afternoon (evening).  We hope you can join us (and for the third Sabbath meal, too!).

Remember – please refrain from turning on your cell phones in the Synagogue on Shabbat and Yom Tov.

Please help us with our weekday and Saturday evening  minyanim.  In the summer, Saturday evening services begin at 9:00 p.m. almost every week, and we can use a great deal of assistance in order to provide a minyan for those saying Kaddish.  If you have no plans on a particular Saturday evening, please join us for services (and for the meal an hour earlier).

There are many upcoming opportunities to read Haftarah on a Shabbat beginning in June and throughout the summer. The next open Shabbat is August 23 (Re’eh).   In addition, with our move to a triennial reading cycle, shorter readings are available this summer for those who would like to read Torah.  If you are interested in a particular date, please contact me.

Check out other pages on the blog for information about tefilah.  New pages have been posted, including recordings of both the weekday Mincha and Ma’ariv services.

Would you like to sponsor weekday breakfast  Seudah Shelishit in the future?  Call Denise in the synagogue office to inquire about available dates.

Tisha b’Av 5774 (beginning Monday evening)

Leave a comment

We begin our observance of the black fast of 9 Av on Monday night.  Tisha b’Av is a 25 hour fast beginning at sundown.  We observe the same “mourning” rituals as on Yom Kippur.  Tisha b’Av marks the anniversary of the destruction of both temples in Jerusalem, as well as other tragic events in Jewish history

There will be no afternoon/evening service here on Monday.  We encourage everyone to attend the conservative community service at Congregation B’nai Moshe (Drake s of Maple) at 8:45 p.m. (service will include both Mincha and Ma’ariv).  The service is scheduled to last about 2 hours.  Asher Tilchin will represent Adat Shalom by serving as the shliach tzibbur for the Ma’ariv service.

Services on Tuesday at Adat Shalom will be at our regular times (7:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.).

Please remember that we DO NOT put on tallit and tefillin at the morning service; bring them with you for the afternoon service.

If you will be attending the afternoon service on Tuesday, and you plan to fast from sundown on Monday evening until that service, please let me know by Tuesday morning.  With a prescribed minimum of fasters present, we will prepare the additional prayers and services for the fast day.

Odds and Ends

Leave a comment

First, Hazzan Gross shared this great YouTube video from a synagogue in England that summarizes the Shabbat experience the way it should be.  Here’s the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvEHJpsBCIg

Second, tomorrow morning (Tuesday), the Tamarack traffic control and buses will be here to pick up the kids for second session.  Be careful when you arrive and when you leave; I suggest that you not leave via the 13 Mile exit because the buses enter there.  If there on the same schedule as first session, they’ll get here right around when we finish services.

Wednesday evening, I encourage everyone to attend the community program at Shaarey Zedek in Southfield, where we will show solidarity in support of Israel during this trying time.  There will be a speaker from the Israeli consul’s office.  No reservations are necessary, and the program begins at 7:30 p.m.  I look forward to seeing you there.
