The Flame High
Holiday Services. One 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
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 Mat Hoffman for
Ruach. Please join Ruach on Wednesday,
August 6 for “Stories from the Clinton White House,”
presented by Stephen Neuwirth, Associate White House Counsel for
President Clinton (1993-1996). There will be a light lunch at
