"Discovering Israel" with Ayelet Tours
Led by Rabbi Andrew Bloom, June 9-20, 2022

I'm excited to announce an upcoming trip to Israel. Please join me for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. For as we are taught, "Sojourn in this land and I will be with you and bless you." (Genesis 26:3)

Israel is a land of connections and reconnections. It is a place that both holds nostalgia and awaits rediscovery. Over the decades, so much in Israel has changed dramatically, yet the essence that draws us remains the same. As we travel, we will bond through our shared experiences and enhance our understanding of culture and archaeology, religion and politics, ancient and modern.

Learn more about the itinerary, prices, what's included, and how to register.

Ladies' Auxiliary Book Club: Sunday, Dec. 19, 10:30 AM

Join the Ladies' Auxiliary on Sunday, Dec. 19 as they discuss The Matzah Ball by Jean Meltzer.

Rachel Rubenstein-Goldblatt is a nice Jewish girl with a shameful secret: she loves Christmas. For a decade she's hidden her career as a Christmas romance novelist from her family. Her talent has made her a bestseller even as her chronic illness has always kept the kind of love she writes about out of reach.But when her diversity-conscious publisher insists she write a Hanukkah romance, her well of inspiration suddenly runs dry. Then she runs into her summer camp archenemy.

"Every assembly whose purpose is to serve God will in the end be established" (Pirkei Avot 4:14)

Our synagogue is dedicated to warm, personal and moving worship, as well as innovative and integrative educational classes and activities for both adults and children.

We further are committed to integrating all of our members into a warm and caring community based around the philosophy of "all Israel (in this case our community) being responsible one for each other." (Babylonian Talmud, Shavuot 39a)

I have no doubt that you will quickly feel at home within our social, religious, educational and communal activities.
— Rabbi Andrew Bloom
