Shalom Chaverim,
 
What a month of simcha! After a joyous Purim we were blessed to maintain the exalted level all the way to this week's simcha- the weddimng of Martha Wall to Yehudah Meyers. 
Martha and Yehudah
 
 
Mazel Tov to Martha and Yehudah, and their families and friends, and yashar koach to all the members of the Beit Chaverim family who added so much to the simcha!
 
 
 
 
Please call Patrice if you have not yet reserved for this Sunday's evening of comedy at Westport Town Hall.
 
Second Seder is coming! You work so hard making the first seder- this one's for you! Relax, leave the cooking to us, and have a meaningful and spiritually uplifting second seder at Beit Chaverim. Reserve here.
 
This Sunday we once again welcome the Bridgeport Kollel to join us for Lox 'N Learn. The last one was a great success, please come by for a pre pesach tuneup mit a shmear. All are invited, Shacharit at 8:30AM.
 
We will also focus on Pesach this Wednesday and next at Lunch N' Learn.
 
Sunday March 29 we will be kashering utensils (bring anything from home to be kashered, and do not use for 24 hours prior for Pesach after the 8:30AM service, and getting the shul kitchen kosher for pesach.Volunteers needed! Please drop me a line if you can help out for an hour or two.
 
Finally, we have the equivalent of an NHL Hat Trick- this shabbat we will take out three (count 'em!) Torah scrolls as we begin sefer Vayikra and observe observe Rosh Chodesh. That's two...
 
This Shabbat is also Parashat HaChodesh, one of the special pre Passover maftir readings- Torah scroll number three. Read all about the significance of this special Shabbat  right here.
 
As always, as we approach our Festival of Freedom, we take a moment to reflect on our good fortune, and on our commitment to help others who are less fortunate. Please, please, do not forget about those in our community who cannot even afford the basic necessities to make a seder this Pesach.
Send a check to the shul marked 'Maot Chittim" made out to my discretionary fund, or call or email Patrice in the office, and I will make sure that we can ensure that everyone will be able to have a wonderful Pesach.
 
Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Greg
