Shabbos Parshas Vayelech - Shomrei Emunah


									      Shomrei Emunah Weekly Bulletin
September 22, 2012           6 of Tishrei 5773                   Shabbos Shuvah, Parshas Vayelech                               Vol. 3 No. 1
       CONGREGATION SHOMREI EMUNAH               6221 GREENSPRING AVENUE BALTIMORE, MD 21209               410-358-8604 FAX 410-358-0664

Message from the President
We hope that you enjoyed the Rosh Hashanah davening and atmosphere as much as we did. So many people ensured that each of the minyanim had a custom
flavor and I will enumerate all of those individuals next week after Yom Kippur. This will give you the opportunity to personally say thank you to them for enabling
our Shul to be a place where we can all feel at home and daven b’achdus.

Once again, we are proud to have had the opportunity to host the Baltimore Jewish community Thursday night for the Rabbi Frand Teshuva Drasha. Over 1,600
people were in attendance and able to be together in our Makom Torah and Tefillah to hear inspiring words from Rabbi Frand. We thank the Baltimore Council of
Orthodox Jewish Congregations together with Eli Schlossberg for arranging for the entire community to participate in this event.

By now, you should all have heard or have in hand, the NEW SHOMREI EMUNAH Membership Directory. It is truly exciting for us and a zechus to have such a large
membership base! I hope you can use this as a quick reference and that it becomes a useful item within your home. In the spirit of the Aseres Yimei Teshuva, this
would be a great tool to use as we invite company for Shabbos or yom tov. Let’s try to invite new Shomrei Emunah members or other members that we do not
necessarily know. In the merit of this commitment, may we be sealed this Yom Kippur in the Book of Life.
I want to take this opportunity to personally wish you and your family a G'mar Chasima Tova.
Have a wonderful Shabbos,
