A Short Summer Vort
Perhaps one of the most famous Jewish songs is the "Bentching" song. At some point in our lives we pick up the familiar tune. Interestingly enough, there is no other tune for this. Parshat Eikev teaches us the importance of the Mitzvah to "Bentch." We give thanks both before and after we eat. It is a very Jewish thing.

As we near the end of the lazy summer months and prepare for back-to-school and the Yomim Tovim, let us not forget to give proper thanks for what was a pleasant and relaxing summer. We sure gave thanks when it started, so we must make sure to have all our thank you obligations covered.

Shabbat Shalom
Kiddush this Shabbat is being sponsored by the Etz Chaim community

Please return it by email, mail, or drop it at the office as soon as possible, but no later than September 16th , so that we can have an accurate count and prepare properly for the holiday. If you will be out of town and not coming at all, please let us know. It is important we hear from everyone in some way.
