Correction: Last week`s Shabbos Shorts was sponsored by Rochelle Dimont in honor of Daniel Ginsburg`s Bar Mitzvah. We apologize for omitting the listing.

The Coat Room / Coat Racks are not for long-term storage – Members are leaving coats, sweaters, etc., around the Shul. We don`t have room to keep them here. Please take home your clothes, books, bags, etc. by Monday, July 7. Items still in Shul then will be removed.

We welcome the young children of our members, but strollers should be left outside alongside the shul. If bad weather requires you to bring your stroller inside, please fold it up to minimize the amount of space required. Thank you for your cooperation.

Nine is Not Enough – There have been evenings recently when getting a Minyan for Mincha/Maariv at University Blvd. has been difficult… and that is a major problem for daveners there who have to say Kaddish. If you have the time and are going to daven anyway, head for University Blvd. some evenings and help keep the Minyan going.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Shul members and the community for their tremendous outpouring of love, reverence and sympathy you showed on the passing of my husband and our father, Rabbi Gedaliah Anemer z"l. Every thought, word and anecdote served as a tremendous nechama to us. It was heartwarming to see how Rabbi Anemer z"l was appreciated in his lifetime and mourned in his passing. May we share only simchas together, and may his memory serve as a bracha to all of Klal Yisrael.
