Women's Tehillim.  All women and girls, please join us this Shabbat in MP1 right after Mincha to say Tehillim together.  We are also going to begin learning the laws of Shmirat HaLashon together.  


The Flame High Holiday Services.  An additional option for the high holidays is the Flame services to be held again this year at 1228 North Avenue, in our former sanctuary.  Flame services are somewhat briefer, explanatory and give time for questions and discussions, but are still run to ensure that all halachic prayer requirements are met.  The services are designed both for our members who want to study the prayers in greater depth and as outreach to the community.  There is no charge for these services, but reservations are suggested.  If you have any questions please contact Rabbi Mathew Hoffman.


Help Needed for Men's Mikvah.  Once again, the mikvah will be open for men on Erev Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  We need boys 13 and older to assist in monitoring the mikvah each of those days.  If you can spare 1-2 hours during the day, please contact Yoni Rawson, Zachary Lent or Brad Scher.  You will be paid for your time plus receive a free pizza lunch during the day.


Men's Mikvah Hours.  Men's mikvah hours on Erev Rosh Hashanah will be from 6:30am to 4:15pm.  Cost is $15 per person. Checks can be made payable to Mikvah of New Rochelle.  Please bring your own towels.


Shofar Blowing for Homebound People.  Once again Brad Scher will be making arrangements for shofar blowing for homebound people.  If you or anyone you know are unable to make it to shul for Tekiat Shofar and would like him to blow shofar for you on either day of Rosh Hashanah, please email Brad or the office.


Selling of Lulav and Etrog Sets.  Lulav and Etrog sets will be for sale in the shul atrium on Sunday, October 5 from 1:00pm to 6:00pm.

(Question: In what sport was Israel's only Olympic Gold Medal?) 

Panoply is an amazingly fun, but competitive multi-media, multi-sensational, fast-paced, trivia game, in which pre-arranged teams of 10 people, seated together at individual tables, will compete against one another!

If you are interested in being a Table Captain, please email ASAP - YINR.Panoply@gmail.com.   Half the Captain spots were taken in the first 24 hours!  Team Captains are responsible for drafting all 10 team members.  The game covers challenging and fun questions on a broad range of topics, in a variety of formats - Geography, Literature, Torah, History (World, American and Jewish), Sports, Art, Pop Culture and much, much more!  Recruit teams of multiple-aged players, with diverse backgrounds.  Or make a table of friends and/or family - the choice is yours!
