Minyan Silencer-Turns your phone off & on at scheduled times

Tired of remembering to silence your phone's ringer during prayers, meetings, or classes? And when you do silence it, do you sometimes forget to turn it back on again afterwards? Then you need Minyan Silencer. MinyanSilencer lets you set up multiple schedules when your phone should automatically turn off its ringer, and then later turns it back on. Schedules can be configured either in absolute time, or relative to sunrise or sunset (particularly useful for prayers / minyanim). If your phone doesn't have GPS, you can manually select a city for calculating sunrise & sunset times. An added optional feature (must be turned on in settings) works when you manually silence your phone, and asks you when you would like it to turn back on again.

The Tenement Museum

The Tenement Museum preserves the history of immigration through the personal accounts of those who built lives in the Lower East Side. Visitors can view restored apartments from the 19th and 20th centuries, walk the historic neighborhood, and interact with residents to learn the stories of generations of immigrants who helped shape the American experience. The museum is available by guided tour only. Each tour focuses on a specific theme and takes visitors to different areas of our two historic tenement buildings or neighborhood. <p><span class="exhibit-para second">FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS,</span> the Tenement Museum has told the stories of immigrants who lived at 97 Orchard Street. While the building closed its doors to residents in 1935, the neighborhood continued to welcome newcomers in search of opportunity. In 2017, the Museum will open a new exhibit at 103 Orchard Street, in the same landmarked building that houses the Visitor Center and Museum Shop.</p> <p>Built in 1888, 103 Orchard Street was originally three separate tenements. The building became a corner unit when the north side of the block was demolished in order to create an approach to the newly-built Williamsburg Bridge. In 1913, the front side of the three buildings merged, while the back of the buildings were demolished to make space for a new bank headquarters. Over its 127 years as a residence, 103 Orchard Street housed more than 10,000 people. The new exhibit will tell three families' stories.</p> <h1><img title="Tour" src="" alt="Tour" width="128" height="52" /></h1> <p>View the restored apartments of past residents from different time periods. </p> <h1><img title="Walk" src="" alt="Walk" width="138" height="52" /></h1> <p>Explore the Lower East Side and the American Immigrant Experience. </p> <h1><img title="Meet" src="" alt="Meet" width="130" height="54" /></h1> <p>Visit a costumed interpreter playing a past resident of 97 Orchard Street. </p>
