    Mazel Tov!!

    This is a sample of what my husband put up in our building when our son was born.


    מתוך שבח והודי' להית"ש על כל טוב שגמלני הנני להודיע שהשלו' זכר
    ___________ עבור בני שנולד במזל טוב יתקיים ב"ה בליל ש"ק

    Fill in the details

    Just phone round the local shuls and tell them to announce it after davening on friday night! If you really need a text...

    With Grateful Thanks to H-shem Yisborach, we are delighted to invite you to a Sholom Zochor upon the birth of our son at ___________,
    Looking forward to seeing you. Mr & Mrs Simon Cohen or just Shimon Cohen.

    Mazel Tov!

    I despise the people who send out those texts and write "I would like to personally invite you to a shalom Zachor"....

    Really? Personally? A mass text to 750 people is "personal"??

    I refuse to go to any simcha that invites me via text.

    Disgusting thing to do.

    Pick up a phone and make a phone call.

    I personally would call, but if you want to ALSO post a "flyer" at Shul, I did the following:

    With grateful hearts filled with much joy
    We're blessed with a new baby boy.
    To celebrate our great delight
    Please join with us on Friday night
    As we welcome our new little bochur
    At the _____ Mishpacha's Sholom Zochor.

    (give address and time)

    My wording was a little different, but you get the idea...
    mazel tov and much nachas as you are zocheh l'gadlo l'Torah, l'chuppah, ul'maasim tovim.

    from your attitude I assume were you never involved in the hassle,stress, tears and drama when a baby is born especially a boy and the preparations it requires.
    People are emotionally are on their last string, no time for thinking to much about how others feel with a "personal invite via mass texting / emailing"
    So people don't care you the one losing out not going and enjoying cakes and goodies after your friday night meal.......
