ASKT Chavrutah Program: Would you like to study Torah with a partner in the ASKT community? If you are interested in learning with someone via phone, zoom or perhaps in person (we will leave that up to you to work out with your learning partner) please email, asktshul@gmail.com and let us know. Also, let us know what you are interested in studying with a partner and how often. Studying Torah (whether it is Tanach (Bible), Halacha (Halacha), Talmud, Mishna, Hashkafa (Jewish thought), Mussar (ethics), or some other area) is edifying, it's interesting, it's challenging, it's life changing, it's a mitzvah and it is what has kept us Jews alive and kicking for so long. This is for men and women of all ages and all skill levels. No learning matches will be made without consulting with all parties first. We will be pairing up men to learn with men and women to learn with women.

NOTE: Page numbers are taken from the Artscroll RCA Siddur
 
Friday, October 16
One can start Shabbos as early as Plag HaMincha which is at 4:57pm If you want to start Shabbat that early the best is to daven Mincha before 4:57pm and start Shabbat after that.  If you want to do a late Shabbat you can light at regular time and daven mincha before sunset at 6:06pm
 
Mincha (5:25pm) - Ashrei (232) Amidah (234) and Aleinu (252)
 
Kabbalat Shabbat (308) at Home.  Make sure to dress up nice and to sing!!  Pick a nice tune or two for Lechah Dodi. (316).
(Those at home) skip Bameh Madlikin (322) and go straight to Maariv (330). (No Barchu is said) We say the paragraph of Vayechulu (346) and then skip the next three paragraphs and say Aleinu (350) and Vayigdal (12)
 
Friday Night Meal – Make sure to sing and give divrei Torah! Shalom Aleichem (354), Aishet Chayil (358), and Kiddush (360) followed by HaMotzi.
