There are many opportunities to give back to Ahavat Shalom Synagogue and help us continue to service the community in the capacity that we have been.
Shabbat Services are the perfect opportunity to support Ahavat Shalom Synagogue.
Hagba'a-Raising the Sefer Torah
During Shabbat morning services a member is given the opportunity to raise the Sefer Torah for the entire community to view. This is done once before the start of Torah reading and once at the end.
Petikhat Ha HeKhal-Opening of the Ark
This is an opportunity for a member to open the Hekhal before the taking out of the Sefer Torah and closing the Hekhal once the Sefer Torah is returned to its place.
Hotziat Sefer Torah-Taking out of the Sefer Torah
This is an opportunity for a member to take out the Sefer Torah from the Ark and walk it through the congregation. The same member will return the Sefer Torah to the Ark once Torah reading is completed.
Aliyot- Birchat Torah
There are seven opportunities for sponsorship during Torah reading on Shabbat morning services. Each Aliyah gives a member a chance to rise up to the Torah and recite the Bracha for Torah reading.
Ahavat Shalom Synagogue has provided the community with a full Kiddush on Shabbat mornings. It is a great opportunity for members who wish to commemorate a special occasion or a loved one.
Each Shabbat afternoon, Seudat Shlishit is served after Mincha services. Members of the community use this as an opportunity to commemorate a loved one who has passed away.
