    did i always have it wrong?? i thought it rang 20 minutes before, and 5 minutes before (or when it was time to light)?? did they change it or do they always ring it a little early as a “just in case”?

    Times of candle lighting varies by one or two minutes

    Calendars and newspapers have times that are 1 or 2 minutes earlyer or later
    The timer was always set for 15 min prior to candle lighting 1st alarm ,
    2nd alarm 2 minutes prior to candle lighting .
    A gut Shabbos

    and instead of a air raid siren can it be music? like benny friedman bnei heichala songs?

    to 11

    nevermind music, can it be the sound of the ice cream truck?? i haven’t heard that thing in a while and starting to miss it

    # 11’s suggestion – except that’s it’s probably impractical. An air raid siren that everyone in crown heights can hear is a common enough item. getting music to play loud enough for the entire neighborhood takes expensive speakers, sound system etc. But nice try.
