Survey – High Holy Days
Kindly submit all responses as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, July 24.

The Ritual Committee is hard at work planning for this year's High Holy Days following the announcement that these events will be primarily virtual. Because this year's High Holy Days will look different than prior years, we are interested in hearing from you as to what it is important. Please take a few moments to complete the brief survey (contact the synagogue office for the link) . Each adult member of your family may separately respond to the survey.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts! If you have any questions or want to offer more detailed comments, please contact Jeff Beenstock .

Recipe Deadline:
Monday, August 10

These historic times have brought out the best in so many of us, especially as we struggle to make our days productive, creative and meaningful. No doubt many new and innovative recipes have come about as a result, along with those tried and true dishes our families love. We are gathering all these dishes into a new cookbook to be available in the fall.

Our SignUpGenius will help us coordinate your delicious recipes. If a category is full, kindly submit recipes in other categories. Once you sign up, please send your recipe (and a short story and/or photo to go with it, optional) via email to Ellen Zinn and copy to Marsha Seader . Please submit your recipes by August 10.

Mining the Prayer Book:
Living a Life of Meaning
Led by Rabbi Richard Address
Wednesdays, July 22 & 29 and August 5, 10:30 am

We rarely look at the prayer book as a curriculum for seeking meaning. Yet the prayer book can provide a guide to the challenges of life and a foundation for meaning – from health to social justice, from love to legacy. We will explore some of these ideas and the prayers that speak to them.

Click HERE to register. There is no cost for congregants. $10/person per session for non-members. Zoom information will be emailed upon receiving your registration.
Women & Spirituality: Summer Book Club
Thursday, August 6, 7:00 pm ( RSVP for Zoom information.)

We will discuss Inheritance by Dani Shapiro , a memoir that discusses the author's reaction to finding out through a DNA test that she is not an Orthodox Jew, and describes her psychological and spiritual journey. It reveals the liberation of her true nature and physical being as well as how she evolves as a wife, mother, and human being.
