The Great American Eclipse

Join fellow Young Israel and community members for a front-row seat to view what has been termed The Great American Eclipse (due to the fact the path of the total eclipse will cross through the US). This will be the first total solar eclipse in the continental US in 38 years. For most of the greater St. Louis area, the last total solar eclipse was in 1442. We will be finalizing details of the outing within the next week or so and make those available to everyone. The plan is to leave from the shul after Shacharit. At this time we are not planning to rent a bus, but rather to car pool to the park that we choose. A couple of the park options that we are looking at may also have a modest entrance fee per person. We will be ordering the correct eclipse glasses and there may be a small cost involved for these glasses. If you have or will be ordering your own glasses, please make sure that they are the correct ones (NASA stresses that eclipse watchers be sure that their glasses are both from an approved manufacturer and have an ISO icon with reference 12312-2.)

Notes on Davening

  • We use the RCA Artscroll Ashekenazi siddur. Our baalei tefilla use either the Sephardic or Ashkenazi havarah, depending on their personal preferences.
  • Our minhagim generally follow the Luach Ezras Torah.
  • For Shabbos/Shabbat candlelighting times and exact times for mincha, please see the bulletin.
  • On days school is not in session (summer and Chol Hamoed) there may be an additional Shacharis/Shacharit Shacharit minyan at 8 am; check the announcements.
  • Legal Holidays are New Year's Day, Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and December 25th.
  • On weekdays when the Torah is read, Shacharis/Shacharit follows the Monday-Thursday schedule.
  • The actual algorithm for weekday mincha is 20 minutes before the earliest sh'kia for that week, rounded up to the next multiple of 5 minutes. The actual algorithm for mincha on erev Shabbos/Shabbat is candlelighting time, rounded down to the previous multiple of 5 minutes.
