Ladies' Auxiliary Book Club: Sunday, August 15, 10:30 AM
We are reading The Marriage of Opposites, by Alice Hoffman.
Growing up on idyllic St. Thomas in the early 1800s, Rachel dreams of life in faraway Paris. Rachel's mother, a pillar of their small refugee community of Jews who escaped the Inquisition, has never forgiven her daughter for being a difficult girl who refuses to live by the rules. When her older husband dies suddenly and his handsome, much younger nephew, Frédérick, arrives from France to settle the estate, Rachel seizes her own life story, beginning a defiant, passionate love affair that sparks a scandal that affects all of her family, including her favorite son, who will become one of the greatest artists of France.
Zoom information will be made available closer to the event. Watch for it in the CAS weekly email.
"Discovering Israel" with Ayelet Tours Led by Rabbi Andrew Bloom, June 12-23, 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.
— Rabbi Andrew Bloom
"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
