Join our Virtual Community!
We have suspended all in person services and shul activities until further notice and that is very hard.

But the lights have not gone out in our communal heart and we have started to use technology extensively to bring our community together. It can be a little fiddly at first, but we urge you to try and use it and to help others to do so as well. It really keeps us all connected!

These are the initiatives that we have launched so far.

WhatsApp Groups:

HPHC info is our primary means of communication about shul activities and other important communal information. Please make sure you are on it.

HeatonParkSocial is a group for mutual support, ideas and company.

HPHC Shiurim is for posting classes and shiurim.

If you would like to join any of these groups, please message Rabbi Walker.

Live Virtual Programming:

Every weekday davening, Children’s and Youth’s Activities and Shiurim will be streamed on Zoom. Please email for the links.

Recordings will also be made available.

Our Facebook page and website and email lists will also be active.

Please do virtually join us!

Omit the the order of opening of the Ark, the second YekumPurkan, Mi Sheberach, and Av Ha-Rachamim (since it is the month of Nissan).

It's appropriate to read the Parsha (Vayikra 1:1- 5:26) (p544-566 in the Stone Chumash) from a Chumash as well as the haftorah (p1165). No brachos should be said on the leining or haftorah.
