Enjoy Delicious Food. Support Local Business. Support Kollel


In these trying times, everyone is suffering. You can help support whoever’s making the food in your home with some time off. Help support a local catering company whose business has greatly fallen. Last but not least, when you order this menu, Kollel will get 10%. It’s a win-win-win for everyone.

Halachot of Davening B’yichidut

It is important to remember that even though we are not able to be in shul, we need to be dressed properly for davening and for Shabbat.

When davening at home it is best to choose an indoor location which is relatively quiet. If possible, in front of a wall, and not in front of a mirror. One should choose a set place to daven all his tefilot.
For Shacharit the best is to daven netz (6:58 Amidah, start approximately an hour before to make sure you have enough time to say everything), however only if it will not ruin one’s day. It is important to say korbanot and especially the parsha of ketoret.
Musaf should be davened before the seventh hour (approx. 2:00)
For Mincha we will try to daven together even though we are physically separate. First Mincha at 1:45 second at 6:15. From mincha k’tana (5:15) one should not begin eating a meal, unless one designates a shomer or already davened Mincha. Try to wash at least a few minutes before shkia (7:09) for seuda shelishit. We will daven Arvit at 8:00.
Friday night after the Amida one may say Vayechulu even alone. Preferably it should be said with another person, even one’s wife. One does not say the bracha of Magen Avot.
This week is Shabbat Mevarchim – one may say Birkat Hachodesh even when alone. Rosh Chodesh Nissan is on Thursday. The Molad will be Tuesday, 2;53 am and 11 chalakim.
Reading the Torah is a Chovat Hatzibur, only required in a minyan – However, one should certainly read the Parsha and Haftorah themselves Shabbat morning. The Maftir is Hachodesh which can be found in Shemot 12:1-20. The haftarah is Hachodesh in Yechezkel 45:18-46:18 for Sephardim. The brachot for the Torah and haftorah are not to be recited.
Shabbat Mincha – one should be saying Va’Ani Tefilati even though one would not be reading the Torah, and also Tzidkatcha.
We should take extra care to have proper kavanah even though we aren’t in shul.
May Hashem accept all of our tefilot and bring salvation quickly.

Shabbat Shalom & Chodesh Tov

Matanot L’Evyonim – Gifts to the Poor

On Purim there is a special Mitzvah to give to the poor. This should generally be the value of two meals which will be given out on Purim day. A portion of the money is sent on your behalf to Eretz Yisrael as well as those in need in the Great Neck community. The suggested donation per person is $18 per עני, and the Mitzvah is for two poor people so $36 in total.

Zecher Mahatzit Hashekel

In the times of the Bet Hamikdash, there was an annual collection for the communal korbanot. Each Jew would give a half Shekel. The custom is to give the value of 3 half shekels because is says the word “Terumah” 3 times in Parshat Shekalim. A half Shekel weighs 9.6 grams of silver which currently has the value of around $5.90. The total would be $17.70 per person. If one cannot afford that they can give it as half the value of the local currency which would be $1.50 per person. The best time to give it is on Ta’anit Esther before Mincha.

You can fulfill these Mitzvot online at https://greatneckkollel.org/donate/ Please specify if your payment is for Matanot L’evyonim or Mahatzit Hashekel so that the money can be appropriately distributed.
