|Tikkun L'eil Shavuot (Late Night Learning)|
Join us tonight for Tikkun L'eil Shavuot, a learning session on the first night of Shavuot, beginning at 10:00 PM.
Several congregants are planning to present, including "The Ten Sins Moshe and Pharoah Did in Common!" by Jordan Lee Wagner at 11 PM, and "Hillel: If Not Now, When?" by Len Berman at 10:30 PM. All congregants are encouraged to bring some ideas to share.
The learning culminates with a shiur by Rabbi Weinberg at 8:30 AM, just before the morning minyan. (The morning services begin at 9:00 AM.)
There will be coffee, tea, and refreshments all night for those who wish to stay for independent and small group study until... whenever.
All are welcome to come for any portion of the evening, night, and/or morning.

|Shavuot Online Learning|
To get you into the swing of Torah learning for Shavuot, here are links to videos and audio recordings of some of our past shiurim about the holiday:
Here's an easy and cost-free way you can help our community grow!
Many people are searching for a shul near Boston via the Internet. When people enter the search phrases that we care about, our own website sometimes comes out near the top of the search results. But just as often, Yelp's page about our shul comes up more prominently.
Yelp is a directory of businesses and institutions. Anyone can post reviews there.
These search results mean that many people's first impression of our shul comes not from our own website but from Yelp's listing.
You can help us attract more visitors and prospective members by visiting The Adams Street Shul's listing at Yelp, and rating us or reviewing us there. So far, there are only two reviews there (both very positive of course).
If there were many positive reviews, written by diverse people sharing their perspectives, that would make our listing in the Yelp directory a valuable aid to our long term growth. It takes just a couple of minutes and is free.

|When is a Door Not a Door?!|
When is a door not a door?
When the wind and rain blow and pour through the cracks.
Being one hundred years old has its downsides as well as its glories. One of them is the poor condition of the front doors of the shul.
Thanks to the generosity of Herbert and Suzanne Spatz, a fund has been started to restore the doors. Thank you to those who have already donated to it. We still need additional matched donations to make the restoration actually happen by this year's high holy days.
In this way, everyone can have a part in the restoration of the historic Adams Street Shul. It's easy; you can donate any amount online now.
