We need your support to ensure we offer both a welcoming experience
and maintain the decorum, dignity and safety of our services on the High Holidays. We are grateful to Elisheva Kilner for organizing the ushers but she is in serious need of your participation.
An usher's responsibilities includes greeting people as they enter into the sanctuary, answering any questions, assisting those in need of special help, and standing by the door to minimize interruptions at critical times of the davening so that people can focus on the Tefillah.
One hour of your time will help ensure that all this happens.
Erev Rosh Hashana (Wednesday, September 4) from 6 am - 5 pm. Please bring your own towel.
The fee for usage is $10.00.
I am still standing after all of these years....The words may remind you of Elton John but are actually rooted in the beginning of the week's Torah portion Nitzavim. The juxtaposition of last week's parsha concluding with the curses and this week's of reassurance of Moshe to the Jewish people that they are still standing before G-d offers a timely and timeless message. Rav Tzadok Hakohen explains that naturally the Jews would feel disheartened by the possible curses and therefore Moshe reminds people of the forthcoming blessings and innate sanctity of every member of the nation.
This is the last Shabbat of the year. Looking back we have experienced joy and sorrow, hope and despair. As we approach Rosh Hashana, this week's Torah portion possesses a spirit of reassurance that G-d willing, we will merit a year of blessings for all.
that was forwarded to me this week. It captures a very meaningful message about tuning off technology to create the sacred space afforded to us every week by Shabbat to connect with G-d, our family and community. Wishing you and your families a Ketivah VeChatimah Tovah and a happy and healthy new year,
This Saturday night, Sylvia's will be open pre-Selichot, 8:30-9:30 pm. We carry unique Rosh Hashana cards!
