A Message from Rabbi Daniel Cohen
Values of Agudath Sholom -For the Three Weeks and Beyond
During the three weeks, we will explore three core values of CAS.
These ethical principles underscore the development of a sacred,
inviting and healthy organization. The curriculum will consist of the three dimensions: Shabbat Divrei Torah in shul for adult and youth, home based discussion material, and an interactive workshop on Shabbat afternoon. The three themes will be:
1. Shabbat, July 14th - Greet Everyone with a Smile
2. Shabbat, Jul 21st - Speaking Positively
3. Shabbat, July 28th - Judging People Favorably
The Core Values program will be launched on Sunday morning, July 8th at Agudath Sholom, the fast of the 17th of Tamuz at a symposium at 9:15 - 10:00 AM dedicated to the themes.
The program is open to the entire community and a wonderful way to harness the spirit of the three weeks to develop Jewish community and nurture personal development.
