Updating Youth Lists - Names of Children Entering 3 Year Old Nursery Needed!  We are currently updating the youth lists. Your child automatically graduates to the next grade (for example, 3 year old nursery becomes 4 year old nursery).  Please email drawson2@verizon.net with any additional changes and the names of any children entering 3 year old nursery.


The Flame High Holiday Services.  An additional option for the high holidays is the Flame services to be held again this year at 1228 North Avenue, in our former sanctuary.  Flame services are somewhat briefer, explanatory and give time for questions and discussions, but are still run to ensure that all halachic prayer requirements are met.  The services are designed both for our members who want to study the prayers in greater depth and as outreach to the community.  There is no charge for these services, but reservations are required.  If you can read the Torah for any of these services or help out as a chazzan, we have a few open slots and could really use your help.  Please contact Rabbi Matthew Hoffman for more information.
