The Annual Scholarship Brunch will now be honoring a deserving member who regularly goes above and beyond in terms of volunteering their time for Agudas Achim.
The individual being honored will receive the Shem Tov Award, which literally means an award for somebody who has a “good name” in the community because of their good works.
This year’s honoree is Steve Shkolnik! Watch your mailboxes for the Shem Tov Award Scholarship Brunch invitations!
Proceeds from the Scholarship Brunch are used for scholarships for Agudas Achim youth to participate in Jewish summer experiences and educational programs for all ages at Agudas Achim. Host committee, sponsorship and individual seats are available. Contact Bobbie for more information at 614-237-2747 x22, or email@example.com. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Beginning February 9th from 9:15-10:00 am in the conference room (and continuing every 2nd Shabbat of the month until June)
Leah Weintraub is teaching this class about davenning and the service. The goal is to help people feel more comfortable in services in general and the Shabbat service in particular. The class will focus on the Shabbat morning service, because it is the most familiar service. The class will discuss the structure of the service, the meanings of some key prayers, choreography, and halacha vs. minhag. The class will compare the Shabbat morning service to other services (Shabbat mincha, Yom Tov morning, weekday).
Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary.
