Rabbi's Message
So here we are - it's the last Shabbat of the year. Whereas in many other arenas we would be looking at this time as the end and closing of something, we are fully engaged in the beginning of the next phase. Rosh Hashanah is here and we must be ready.

This Shabbat is a time for sincere introspection as we look back at all the Shabbatot of the past year. Have we observed and honored Shabbat as we should have? Did we share our Shabbat experiences with those who needed it? Did we maximize this special time "Off" and spend it properly and meaningfully with our family and loved ones?

No matter what the answer may be, there is still one Shabbat to show Hashem that we want to always do the right thing. We want to start 5780 off on the right foot and this is the perfect opportunity to do exactly that!

Shabbat Shalom and Shanah Tovah
