Summer 2017

Dear Members לאי"ט

Welcome to the BLBH Luach for 5778.

I would like to start by giving a big "Yasher koach" to my co-editor David Rosenthal.  Apart from keeping me sane during the prodcution of this luach, his particularly fine (Yekkish) eye for detail has ensured that there are far fewer mistakes than would otherwise be the case.
I have been asked by a couple of members about the significance where we state  "candle lighting between xx pm and xx pm".  The answer is that candles should not be lit before plag hamincha (one and a quarter halachic hours before sunset), and in the summer evenings when we daven close to plag hamincha, this should be borne in mind.
In addition, the latest time of lighting, is before the kehilla bring in Shabbos by saying "Mizmor Shir L'Yom haShabbos"

I would like to thank all the advertisers, the income of which  pays for the printing of the luach, and helps with the upkeep of the Shul.    As always, I welcome suggestion for future editions.   
On the subject of the upkeep of the Shul, there are still many many mispallelim who use our facilities without making any contribution whatsoever to the costs.  We, just like other shuls, have expenses to meet, and if you are reading this and have not taken up any form of mebership, I urge you to speak to one of the gabboim with a view to making a contribution.

One final point.  Inevitably as the year goes on, there will be some changes to the advertised times.  Please ensure that the secretary has your correct email address, so that you can be informed of any such changes.

With best wishes for a כתיבה וחתימה טובה
