Important Message about Rabbi Katz’s Upcoming Lecture Series

The annual Motzai Shabbos winter lecture-series on 20th century Jewish History continues this year IY”H starting October 16, 2021 (see the schedule of dates on the poster below). The plan is for the lectures to be given in person at Cong. Shomrei Emunah, as in the past at 8:45 PM until the clock changes, then at 8:00 PM. We feel this in the best format for delivering the lectures, and many people prefer being in a live audience.

At the same time, there are many others who do not wish to attend live events, out of Covid-caution, which is certainly understandable. To facilitate both “audiences,” we are making the following arrangements: Each lecture will be delivered before a live audience at Shomrei. The lecture will be videoed and edited over the course of the following week. The edited video will then be put online the following Saturday night at 8:00 PM on Rabbi Katz’s YouTube channel (Google “Jewish History with Rabbi Dr. Dovid Katz”). Thus, the lecture will be available for the “home audience” one week after it is delivered live at Shomrei. So the plan is for the first lecture to be delivered live at Shomrei on October 16, and for that lecture to be available online on October 23.

These are our tentative plans. Obviously, we live in medically “volatile” times, and it may be necessary to modify this schedule. To keep abreast of possible changes, go to the websites of: a.) the Where What When (, b.) “Hertzberg’s” ( or c.) Shomrei Emunah (

May we all stay safe.

Outdoor minyanim are continuing as long as weather permits.
