Darchei noam

A modern Orthodox congregation in St. Louis ParkFacebook


Two more scholar-in-residence Shabbatot coming up:  OnJanuary 30-31, we will welcome Nuriel Klinger from YU.  Rabbi Dov Linzer, Dean of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, will join us on March 8.

A couple of months ago, we promised a pizza and movie night to our kids if they completed a puzzle during the Darchei Noam Sukkah Hop.  As expected, the children completed the puzzle with flying colors, so we will have a pizza and movie night for the kids on Saturday night,December 20.  The evening will start at 6:00 pm with Chanuka candle lighting, followed by one movie for the younger kids, and one for the older. Parents, RSVP to Nisso Khabie, nkhabie@aol.com, by Wednesday, December 17.  Each kid can bring a guest.  We are also looking for a few more adult chaperones, so please let Nisso know if you would like to chaperone.
Our next evening to serve dinner to the residents of St. Stephen's Homeless Shelter is Monday, December 29.  We need four cooks (vegetarian lasagna, one dessert enough for 50 people, a vegetable tray, and some fruit), and four servers.  If you can help with this important and rewarding project, please let Lee Snitzer know, jsrulke@aol.com or 952-925-2976.
Save the dates!  The first Darchei Noam Study Group of this winter, Saturday, January 3, will be given by Miriam Charney, on the topic of Mussar.  It will be hosted by the Karasov/Bloomfield family.  Upcoming sessions will be January 24 -Rabbi Hayim Herring on his book Keeping Faith in Rabbis, andFebruary 26 - Shira Krebs on Jewish Conflict Resolution.
