1) Welcome Guests

Our guest ba’al tephilla this Friday night is Naftali Abramson. Additionally, a delegation of high level U.S. politicians will be visiting Shir Hadash for Friday night services. All are encourag…ed to attend and help make our minyan as inspiring, welcoming and meaningful as possible, which in turn will help strengthen the connection of these leaders to the people of Israel. Following services, a brief sushi social open to all will be held to allow congregants to personally welcome and interact with the honored guests. Former residents of the following U.S. States are particularly encouraged to attend, as the politicians are from there: Missouri, Washington, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Utah, Nebraska, and Peurto Rico.

4) Children’s Programming Update

We continue to develop a program to better enhance the Shabbat experience of our children (which, of course, also helps to improve the Shabbat tephillot of our adults as well). A donor has come forward to pay for a babysitter for young children; now we need the babysitter. Please let your teenagers know about this opportunity. Additionally, we’ve received offers from parents to volunteer to help run a kid’s service for older children. If you would like to join the rotation, please e-mail
