March 31 – April 1, 2023 – 10 Nissan 5783 – Parshas Tzav/Shabbos Hagadol

Light Candles by 7:12 – Havdalah 8:12

The Shabbos Shorts is sponsored by Laurie Bassan Cohen & Stuart Cohen in honor of Dr. Ken Jacobson receiving the E.B. Hershberg Award for Important Discoveries in Medicinally Active Substances from the American Chemical Society
and by Nechama & Ted and Eli Goodman, who are grateful for the Zechut of living in Eretz Hakodesh and remain grateful to Rabbi Dovid & Rebbetzin Atara Rosenbaum and the YISE community for their Gemilut Chassadim and Oskim B'Tzarchay Tzibur over the many years they were part of the community, 2007 – June 2021, and even earlier when their Bechor attended the Yeshiva as an out-of-towner, 1996 – 2000. Regrettably, they didn't get to say a proper Shalom to many people. They hope to see everyone again in Israel soon. Leshanah Hazeh B'Yerushalayim Habenuyah!
