Shabbat P’ Behar Bechukotai

May 15 - May 21, 2020

Shabbat Shalom!

Please let us all try to keep the Shabbat on the highest level possible!


Shabbat Schedule

During the summer months we usually make early Shabbat and pray Mincha at 7:00pm followed by Kabbalat Shabbat, Shir HaShirim and Arvit.

Candle Lighting may be anytime from 6:34pm ‑ 7:45pm

Friday Afternoon Mincha ‑ 7:00pm

Shacharit followed by Torah reading and Musaf ‑ 8:40am

(It is praiseworthy to pray the Shemona Esrei of Shacharit at sunrise which this Shabbat is 5:29am, if you can.)

It is a good idea to read the parsha of the week from a Chumash.

In the Artscroll Stone Chumashim it is page 696-722.

The Haftara is found on page 1179.

Earliest time for Mincha on Shabbat is 1:30pm

Start eating Seudat Shelishit before 8:06pm

Havdala: 8:56pm



Pirkei Avot

B’Ezrat Hashem we will continue our Pirkei Avot Class this coming Wednesday Evening at 7:15pm.

We will send out a link before the Class. (It is the same link as usual.)

Daf Yomi Shiur

If anyone would like to join our daily Zoom Daf Yomi Shiur please let Rabbi Hamaoui know.

We also have new early morning class from 6:20am - 7:00am. We are studying Gemara Berachot and Chumash with Rashi on Parshat Hashavua.

Refuah Sheleima List:

If you have a name of a person that needs a refuah sheleima, you may reply to this email with the name of the person.

Iyar is a month of Refuah - אייר = א'ה'ר' - "אני ה' רופאך"

Let us pray that all those that are sick, especially from COVID -19, should have a recovery and all those that are healthy should remain healthy.

May Hashem bring a swift end to this plague.
