Would you like to help enhance ACI's kiddush table on Shabbat mornings (when there is not a sponsored lunch or other special event scheduled)?   If you would like to occasionally donate and bring some bagels, some shmears, a nosh of this or that (kosher of course, and dairy or pareve) for the congregation to enjoy following services, please be in touch with Dayvin Sterling (email KiddushBrigade@astoriacenter.com)  who is organizing this new initiative.

A new Ba'alat Mitzvah Class for women who did not have a bat mitzvah as a youngster or who want to maturely deepen their relationship with mitzvah is tentatively being formed.  Students participate in a fascinating course of study with the Rabbi, meeting every other week for about an hour, following Shabbat services (there is "no homework"!).  Sessions continue until late Spring 2017, when there will be a "Ba'alat Mitzvahceremony" at Shabbat services for the 'graduates'.
