Please be considerate of others. No politics. Please join on time. Coming late, leaving early, or listening to both, Torah classes and your tv/phone/radio at the same time, is considered as a No-Show. We reserve the right to make changes to our policies, guidelines, stipend, etc at any time. We reserve the right to terminate anyone's participation at any time, if we feel you are interrupting, bothering, harassing or promoting something other than the study of our Holy Torah and connecting to Hashem. Additionally, if we feel someone is not benefiting from this program as much as we would like, or if they simply don't fit in with the group, or if we feel they will benefit more elsewhere, we reserve the right to exclude them from the program at any time. We do take pictures and videos at our events and of our zooms, that we use for promotional purposes for our organization. We do not sell the pictures or give them to other organizations. If you do not want your picture to be used to help our cause, please let us know in advance.
