February 11, 2017 Tu B’Shvat – Parshat Beshalach 15 Shvat 5777

WINTER WONDERLAND
As everyone digs out from this past week’s blizzard, please be safe walking to and from shul with the ice and make sure to dress warmly as the temperature drops. Let’s daven for some warmer temperatures and nicer weather to enjoy the trees we celebrate on this Tu B’Shvat. Special thanks to all those who assisted in snow removal from the shul property.

Mazal Tov
Mazal Tov to Rabbi Shmuel and Rebbetzin Chana Rochel Witkin on the birth of a baby girl this past week. The community is invited to Kiddush following davening at KBH. 

Shabbat Kiddush
Kiddush following davening this week is sponsored by Michele and Yossi Tabak in commemoration of the yahrzeit of Yossi’s mother, Shaina Rochell Bat Yosef Mordachai, a”h and Shani and Kenny Feldhamer to honor American Democracy. In addition, Nomi and Asher Gul are also sponsoring for this week’s kiddush with dried fruit in honor of Tu B’shvat and in memory of Asher’s sister, Malca bat Yisroel, a”h and cousin, Ilan Yehuda ben Yoel, a”h.

Following the 8:00 Minyan Kiddush, there will be a chaburah at the Tabak house also in commemoration of the yahrzeit of Yossi’s mother, Shaina Rochell Bat Yosef Mordachai, a”h.
