Yom Kippur Kol Nidre Appeal  2020

This year, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, our custom of a Kol Nidre appeal during the service will not happen. Ahavas Sholom cares about your health, so a shorter Kol NIdre service with social distancing is planned.  Please donate online instead!

Our Kol Nidre Appeal helps fund the programs that benefit you, the shul and the entire Columbus Jewish community.  Tzedakah is a cornerstone of these days of awe:

תשובה ותפלה וצדקה מעבירין את רועה הגזירה
Repentance, Prayer and Charity avert the severity of the decree

 

Please give generously.  May you and your loved ones be judged favorably for a happy, healthy and productive new year.

Wishing everyone a sweet new year of health and success!

Kesiva v'Chasima Tova - May we all merit to be inscribed in the Book of Life!

 

 

ROSH HASHANA MESSAGE FROM RABBI CLAMAN

 

Rosh Hashana 5781

 

SEATING PROCEDURE

 

Many people will back in shul for the first time in months and the changed davening setup may be disorienting. For Yom Kippur davening, enter through the main entrance with the large wooden doors, where there will be security coverage. As you enter the lobby, please look for your name on the assigned seating chart. An Artscroll machzor and hand sanitizer will be set at each seat.

 

Thank you to all the dedicated members who were instrumental in ensuring a safe and uplifting davening experience at Ahavas Sholom. We couldn't have done it without you!

KOL NIDREI APPEAL

 

 

Dear Friends,

 

This year, due of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ahavas Sholom custom of a Kol Nidrei appeal during the service will not happen. Having a shorter Kol Nidrei service with social distancing is important to protect your health. Please donate online instead!

 

Teshuva, Tefila and Tzedaka (Repentance, Prayer and Charity) are the three paths to forgiveness and a decree for a good year. Ahavas Sholom offers an opportunity for Tzedaka with one of our most important fundraisers of the year, our Kol Nidrei Appeal.

 

We urge 100% participation from our members and encourage friends of the shul to donate as well. Click HERE to submit your donation online. Wishing you a k'siva v'chasima tova, a year of good health and prosperity!
