The Flame High Holiday Services.  The Flame services will be held again this year at 1228 North Avenue in the Social Hall. Flame services are somewhat briefer, explanatory, and give time for questions and discussions, but are still conducted in a manner that ensures 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 suggested. If you can read the Torah or blow shofar for us, we are  looking for help.  Please contact Rabbi Mat Hoffman for more information.  rabbimat@gmail.com

Ruach. Ruach will meet on Wednesday, July 28 at 12:30pm for an In-Person lunch and program, entitled, “The 1964–65 World’s Fair, presented by Susan and Art Zuckerman, Licensed New York City Tour Guides.
The 1964–65 World’s Fair held in Flushing Meadows, Queens was the place where you could view Michelangelo’s Pieta, a scale model of New York City, exhibits of the best things from countries, states and industries, and then sample foods from all over
the nation and the world. The brainchild of Robert Moses, this World’s Fair was Walt Disney’s testing ground for ideas for Disneyland and the yet-to-come Disney World. This enjoyable multimedia presentation brings back memories and creates new ones.
