Hebrew School Update - Attendance Is Important!
We need your children to attend all classes. Of course, please do not send them to Hebrew school if they are ill. However, please understand that asking to have your child leave early regularly to attend dance or athletic practices disrupts their learning and the learning environment. Please also try to make every effort to drop your child off on time so that we can begin the class on time. For information on Hebrew school closings, please check the Hebrew school calendar at: http://www.simchathalev.org/school-calendar or contact Jenn in the synagogue office at 516-922-42224 ext. 18. We hope the weather will stay this way throughout the school year, but we are realistic. Hebrew school closings: In the event of inclement weather, you will be notified by telephone. Closings will also be posted on Facebook and on News12.com.
Help Us Teach Your Children The Mitzvah of Giving Tzedakah
Simchat HaLev congregants care about each other, the community, and our world. How? By demonstrating kindness with a caring heart, generosity, and helpfulness, by supporting one another as we face life's challenges, and by celebrating important moments. As a community of faith, we reach out to help our neighbors are we are taught: "You shall not oppress the stranger for you know the experience of having yourself been a stranger in the land of Egypt." As a congregation, we partner with G-d to repair our world by getting personally involved. Teach these words to your children. Teach them the mitzvah of giving Tzedakah. Encourage them to save the extra change they have and each week when you are leaving your home, remind them of this mitzvah. Together, both you and your child will be doing a wonderful act of kindness. As a member family, we want to perform the mitzvah of providing financial support to the efforts of Congregation Simchat HaLev. To Donate Now, please click the button donate:

Volunteers are still needed. As we have learned in the Torah, Abraham welcomed the strangers into the tent.

The Ambassador is a volunteer who helps others feel welcome at services, programs and is involved in other forms of outreach. We want everyone to feel welcomed into our sacred tent, we need you to help make that happen. If you are one that attend services regularly and want to help make us a place of welcome, call Jenn today at 516-922-4224 ext. 18 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you interested in participating in the leadership of the service? During every service, there are opportunities for congregants to participate. If you are interested, please contact Jenn at 516-922-4224 ext.18 or email@example.com. Let her know if you would like to read Hebrew, English or have a non-speaking honor. Get involved.
