We are happy to hear that the Governor has given permission for 50 people to congregate indoors. Plan is to start Shabbat morning services STARTING JUNE 20, a week from this Saturday. The service will be somewhat shorter, seating will be spaced apart and we’d be asking people to wear masks(immediate family members could sit together). Bima setup will be adapted for spacing during the Torah service. Also, for the time being the Shabbat morning service would be broadcast on zoom. Fridays would be on zoom only for the time being. No Kiddush lunch after services-Kiddush will be made on the bima.

We are approaching all this slowly, but it is all a good sign to moving back.


Shabbat Morning Services

Starting this Saturday and for the next number of weeks, Shabbat morning services will be on zoom only. We will let you know when Shabbat in the sanctuary resumes. Please remember that the Office and Gift Shop will be open every day from 9:00 to 4:30 Monday thru Thursday and till noon on Friday. Please come in to pay your bills, make donations, buy scrip and shop the Gift Shop for all your needs.

Hazzan Notes

The Jewish year 5780 is rapidly becoming history. How different it is from last Rosh Hashanah.

Future generations will probably say that 2020 was a year of dramatic change. An unseen virus has affected the world. Governments are caught between ministries of finance and ministries of health. Effects vary, but nearly all of us have experienced life style changes. Many are faced with serious financial worries. Others have been infected or faced the loss of dear ones. Some are hardly affected at all. There are even those like war profiteers who have made money.
