Gan Nachshon is Open We want to let everyone know that the playground in our backyard, Gan Nachshon, is open.  Named in memory of Nachshon Eckhardt, z'l, the playground was made possible by a generous donation by Nachshon's great uncle and also by the hard work and efforts of his cousin, Akiva Karan.
Many young families have already made use of this beautiful playground.  May it's use be a boon to our children and families, and be a blessing to the memory of a wonderful young boy who is dearly missed.
We also want to acknowledge the generous funds donated by the estate of Roberta Forman. z'l, which laid the groundwork for the playground and for youth activities in our shul.
The playground is open to our shul members.  There is a sanitizer dispenser at the entrance to the playground attached to the shed. Click Here to "See the Playground being Built"

ASKT’s Shabbat at Home Guide to Davening
 
Davening Schedule for those at home – Please try to Daven at the Same Time as the Community

 NOTE: Page numbers are taken from the Artscroll RCA Siddur
Friday, August 21
One can start Shabbos as early as Plag HaMincha which is at 6:18pm If you want to start Shabbat that early the best is to daven Mincha before 6:18pm 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 7:44pm
 
Mincha (7:00pm) - 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.
 
Shabbat, August 22
We will have an 8:30 am full davening on the patio.
For Those Davening at Home:
Shacharit: daven at 8:30am (Shema should be recited before 9:29am)
Following Shacharit – the parsha of Shoftim can be read from a Chumash.
Following that, one could read the Haftorah for Parshat Shoftim (Isaiah 51:12 - 52:12)
Back to the Siddur – You could now say the mi-Shebeirach for the ill (442) and the mi-Shebeirach for Tzahal (444).  Remember to say the first Yekum Purkan (448) only.   Remember to say the prayers for the government and the State of Israel (450).
 
We say Av HaRachamim (454) and Ashrei (456) which is followed by the Mussaf Amidah (462).
 
I recommend singing Ein Keilokeinu (476), Aleinu (480), (Anim Zemirot is not recited without a minyan) Shir Shel Yom (488), and Adon Olam (12).
 
Kiddush (492) and Festive Shabbat meal (remember to sing and give divrei torah).
 
There is a widespread custom to study Pirkei Avot Shabbat afternoons until Rosh HaShana – this week is Chapter 6.
 
Mincha: (in-person 7:00pm) (502) Ashrei and Uva Litzion.  Followed by Amidah for Mincha Shabbat (514).
Seudah Shelishit – Third Meal
Maariv (256). Remember to add the special insertion in the blessing of binah as part of the Amidah (268).  We say Vihi Noam (p. 594) followed by Aleinu (280)
 
Havdallah (618): at 8:26pm, Say Baruch HaMavdil bein Kodesh Lichol and then you can drive to shul for our 8:55pm minyan.

ReOpening Minyan at ASKT - Message from Rabbi Kalmar
We are continuing weekday minyanim outside starting Sunday morning August 23rd and an outdoor minyan for Shabbat, August 29th. The procedures we are putting in place for all the minyanim are on the shul website. I know that there are very different opinions about what is safe and what is required for this to happen.  I am asking everyone to be tolerant and understanding of other people's points of view as we navigate this re-opening.
 
Gan Nachshon is Open We want to let everyone know that the playground in our backyard, Gan Nachshon, is open.  Named in memory of Nachshon Eckhardt, z'l, the playground was made possible by a generous donation by Nachshon's great uncle and also by the hard work and efforts of his cousin, Akiva Karan.
