Aish Kodesh Dinner 2019: A Historic Event


Mishloach Manos - Deadline Extended 

Dear Members and Friends:


Purim is rapidly approaching and it's time to think of the mitzvah of Mishloach Manos.  We are excited to launch our annual campaign, focused on increasing the personal connection between members while providing an effortless way to send Mishloach Manos.  We want to encourage all shul members, even those who have not participated in the past, to join.  It is our hope that this campaign will create camaraderie amongst our kehila while also acting as a major fundraiser for the shul. 


Here is how it works...


Members can participate in the mishloach manos campaign by visiting


After you have logged in to the site, you will have an opportunity to choose the names of the members to whom you wish to send shalach manos.  Everyone who has been selected by a participant in the shul's campaign will receive a package.  


Don't want to be embarrassed by forgetting someone?  No problem.  Choose the reciprocal option and a package from you will automatically be sent to anyone who has sent to you. 


Participants who generously choose to be a sponsor will automatically send packages to all other participants. 


Prior to package pick-up, each participant will receive a roster of the Members and Sponsors with whom you have exchanged Mishloach Manos.


Package pick up is in the shul after Megillah reading both on Purim night and Purim morning.  You must pick up your own packages - we do not deliver. We will email you in advance to let you know if you have received a package.


Deadline for orders: Monday, March 11, 2019


The shul encourages all members to participate by visiting the shul's website.  NOTE:  You must log-in to the site before placing your order.

For those unable to order online, please call a committee member and we will be happy to place your order for you.


A Freylichen Purim!

Rav Weinberger's Shiurim Catalog

With thanks to Hashem, after months of hard work we are excited to share that we are near the completion of organizing all of Rav Weinberger's shiurim of the past 30 years 1988-2018.

A catalog of all Shiurim can be downloaded here:

In order to complete the treasure of Rebbe's shiurim, we'd like to ask the help of the public:

Do you have any additional shiurim that is still on cassette or on digital format and has not been shared with public?

Do you have or know of any missing Shiurim? (see highlighted notes in the catalog)
Do you notice any mistakes in the catalog or elsewhere?

As well if you have general comments about the past or present shiurim. 

Please reach out to us via email:
