Shabbat Shalom

We hope everyone experienced a meaningful and uplifting Yom Kippur and thank all of our volunteers and staff for creating such a wonderful environment. God willing, all of our prayers will be answered for the good.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Yom Kippur Appeal. If you have not already done so, you can use the link below.

We will be offering a full array of minyanim this Shabbat - 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00 AM (one in the sanctuary and one in the tent) and youth groups as well. See below for more info.

We are looking forward to God willing a joyous Sukkot in the day ahead.

Lulav Pick up times are Sunday 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM and Monday 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM. There will also be Sukkah decorating on Sunday morning and the annual Sukkah Hop on Tuesday. If you have any questions about lulavim or Sukkot, please reach out to me or Rabbi Kurtz.

We continue to collect food for the Schoke JFS Freedberg Food Pantry and encourage you to drop off more items this coming week. Thank you to Meg and Liam Haron for chairing our High Holiday Food Drive.

Finally, the bridge days between Yom Kippur and Sukkot are some of the holiest days of the year. We celebrate Sukkot in the fall since God restored the clouds of glory for the Jewish people on the day after Yom Kippur. They were removed after the sin of the golden calf, and God in his infinite love forgave the nation and showed us with his Divine protection. These are days of deep joy and our expressions of renewed commitment to God. Reflect on your new commitment for the coming year.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom and Gmar Tov,

Rabbi Daniel Cohen
