 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, July 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. Fast begins at 4:17 am and ends 9:01 pm


The program is open to the entire community and is a wonderful way to harness the spirit of the three weeks to develop Jewish community and nurture personal development.
