Further to the decision of the Va’ad, the permanent seats in shul will be reserved as follows:
On Friday night, until the end of “Yedid Nefesh”, this means that as of “Lechu Neranena” the seats are no longer reserved and are open for anybody.
On Shabbat morning until “Barachu”, so immediately after “Barachu” the seats are no longer reserved and are open for anybody.
The Gabbaim will make every effort to direct other members and visitors to vacant seats.
After these times, the seats will be available to all.
If a member who has a permanent seat is late, or arrives on time and for any reason finds someone sitting in his permanent seat, and has difficulties, or is unable to sit elsewhere, he should please contact: Darren Platzky, David Hoppenstein, Michael Goodman or Noam Eshkoli.
Under no circumstances should anyone be asked to move seats without coordinating with the people mentioned above.
I hope this will help make everyone comfortable in our shul.
Especially during the Bein HaZmanim, it’s important that we make an effort to strengthen the harmony and “brother and sister-hood” in our community.
There are still a limited number of seats available to be allocated.
If you are interested please contact me or Michael Goodman.
Shabbat Shalom. Darren Platzky
