On behalf of Rabbi Lebowitz and the entire BKNW kehillah, we would like to extend a hearty mazel tov to Eliezer Herschberg and his parents Daniel and Etty upon Eliezer becoming a Bar Mitzvah.  May Daniel and Etty have continued nachas from Eliezer, Dov, Tamar, Yehudis, Shmuel.  The kehillah is invited to a kiddush in honor of Eliezer's Bar Mitzvah upon the conclusion of the main minyan.
This week's post main minyan Tanya chaburah will be given by Reb Elisha HaKohen Graff.  All are welcome to attend.
Shabbos morning youth groups for all age groups will begin at 9:15am. Junior Congregation will take place in the tent.  Pickup for all groups, including Junior Congregation will be at the annex, following the raffles and kiddush. As a friendly reminder to parents, if your child/children or anyone else in the household is sick, please do not bring your children to groups.  
Father-Child Learning in Shul this coming Shabbos will meet at 5:35pm in the main shul. There will be a story, amazing shteiging, yummy treats, a door prize for every child, and incredible prizes!

For those making a simcha and in need of Siddurim and Chumashim, please contact the Frogel family ( to rent beautiful Artscroll-Koren Siddurim/Chumashim. All proceeds go to benefit BKNW. Thank you to the Frogel family for undertaking this beautiful initiative.
We're excited to announce the launch of AirBKNW, a new initiative that alleviates the stress of finding housing for our members' shabbos simchas. BH there are many simchas in the shul and finding appropriate accommodations for family and friends can sometimes be a challenge for the ba'alei simcha. AirBKNW, a hachnasas orchim registry, will now serve as a centralized database for anyone hosting a shabbos simchas in the community. This registry will hopefully make the process of finding housing smoother and less "awkward."
- To add yourself as a host, fill out the linked form. Hosts may be called upon for housing, but of course, you are not committed to host every time you are asked; if something isn't a good fit, simply tell the ba'al simcha it's not a good week for you to host.
- To request housing, contact Estie Rose at 917-863-5257 or She will suggest potential hosts based on your housing needs.
We are hoping that many families can volunteer their homes so as to make the housing options robust.
Baruch Hashem, the BKNW family continues to grow at an exponential rate. We would like to make sure that our members' Simchas are appropriately recognized in a timely fashion. However, in order to do so, we ask the following of all members: If you are celebrating a birth, bar or bat mitzvah, engagement, wedding, or other joyous occasion, please contact Tani Sussman ( during the week of your Simcha so that it can be included in the announcements. It would also be helpful to list in your email the name and (correct) spelling of your spouse, children and family names, as appropriate, for inclusion in the announcements so that mistakes are not made. Thank you for your help in keeping us in the loop concerning your simcha!
