Rabbi's Message
Parshat Korach
Korach is about leadership and those who challenge chosen leaders of a community.  Every person has a role to play in the community, but not every person can be THE leader.  
During this season of graduations, we think about how far we have come and what is still ahead to accomplish.
When I look at the graduates, I see greatness in the future.  Many of our young men and women will take on major leadership roles, while others will serve behind the scenes. 
Let us hope each and every one of us can find our respective places where we can serve our community best.

Shabbat Shalom 
Where in Livingston is Yoni?? 

We're bringing back 

Each Friday afternoon for the first three weeks in June at approximately 3:00pm,  the Shul will be posting/sending out 
a selfie of Yoni in a local establishment. 

The first 4 kids to figure out where Yoni is & show up there win prizes from that place of business and tickets for the year-end raffle!
