Important Ohel Instructions

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 4:50 pm
Posted by Rabbi Schneur Nejar


Being we have a limited amount to time to spend as a group at the Ohel please abide with the following guidelines.

  1. Friday is when we travel as a group to the Ohel. Each Shlucha is allotted 2 minutes inside the Ohel. If you wish to spend more time at the Ohel you can visit any other time during the weekend. Please be mindful that it is cold for others to wait outside. Be courteous to you fellow Shluchos whether old, young, with babies etc. and don’t prolong your stay in the Ohel.
  2. Please listen to the security people and Vaad members who are there to make a Seder and make sure that everyone gets a chance to read her Pan and say a Kapital Tehillim.
  3. Prepare your Pan before arriving at the Ohel so that you can get a lift back to Crown Heights with the bus. Buses will depart by 11:00 am. Snacks will be on the buses.
  4. Please wear non-leather shoes or boots so we can eliminate a backlog at the entrance/exit of the Ohel.

Friday nights can be cold, your walk to Oholei Torah can be far, you don't want to walk alone at night: We have a solution!

In an effort to facilitate the Shluchos who are hesitant or cannot participate in the Friday night Farbrengen, we will be hosting Farbrengens at various locations throughout Crown Heights. The smaller crowds will provide for more intimate Farbrengens. Join your fellow Shluchos and share your thoughts. Each location will feature a multi generational panel.
