Kiddush is primarily sponsored by the shul. But there are several additional sponsorships:

  • Kiddush enhancements are sponsored by Tali Hochstein & Dov Horowitz in honor of Avinadav Horowitz’s 8th and Mazi Englers 4th birthdays
  • A bottle of scotch is sponsored by Goldie & Zelly Goldberg in celebration of the new addition.
  • Scotch and dessert are provided by Ruth & Elliott Croll in honor of the yahrzeits of Elliott's mother and aunt this week.

We are saddened by the passing of Jacob E. Emanuel z"l, beloved father of Tova and Rabbi Fred Hyman, grandfather of Talya, Raphaela, and Rebecca; husband of Deborah and father of Miriam and Ronnie Moore and Sarah and David Holder.  The funeral took place in London on Thursday.  Tova will be sitting shiva through Wednesday morning, at her mother's home, 11 Leeside Crescent, Golders Green, London, NW11.  The phone number is 011-44-208-455-0176.  Tova expects to return to New Haven on Sunday, July 2.  A memorial service in New Haven is being planned.  Deepest sympathy to the entire family.

Mazal Tov to Goldie & Zelly Goldberg on the birth of a new great-granddaughter, Molly Naomi Mitnick!
