Jewish Star Calendar


Achiezer wants good readers.

Achiezer’s Krias Program is back for another year!

Last year, volunteers in the Five Towns and Far Rockaway performed more than 45 lainings and enhanced the Purim celebration for many in our community.

If you are a baal koreh and can lain the Megilah on Purim for our elderly, disabled or home-bound neighbors who are unable to attend shul, please sign up today. Additionally, if you or anyone you know requires this service, please contact Achiezer.

In both cases, call (516) 791-4444 or email and Achiezer  will make the necessary arrangements for you. Purim falls on 14 Adar, which this year corresponds with motzei Shabbat, March 15, and Sunday, March 16.
