Shabbat keeps us grounded. It helps us mark time, it comforts us, it connects us to our families and generations past, present and future... 
Join us to welcome Shabbat!

This Friday, October 2nd, we will be coming into your homes once again via Zoom beginning at 5:30 pm. These are shorter than usual services featuring Rabbi, Erica and Scott. The Power Point slides will be viewable to you to follow along if you don't have your own copy of Gates of Prayer for Shabbat and Weekdays.
A Zoom link will be sent on Thursday to all congregants and we ask for you to please RSVP to Renee. For our non-members who receive our Connections and wish to join us for Kabbalat Shabbat, please message Renee, for this link.

Josh Hartuv, a licensed Israeli tour guide, was one of the first guides to develop virtual tours when COVID-19 struck. The goal of his virtual experiences is to use the medium of the internet to bring Israel to life in ways that are actually impossible in person.

Josh grew up in Hamilton, Ontario, and made aliya at age 22 to enlist in the Paratroopers as a lone soldier. He loves to show people of all ages and from all over the world his favorite sites and to tell the stories that make this land so fascinating.

Erica and Jared's videos for Shabbat candle lighting, Kiddush and Motzi:

Thank you to Erica and Jared for welcoming us in their home. Erica mentions some of the reasons we have two loaves of challah on Shabbat, to which we add that there are two commandments regarding Shabbat in the Torah: Shamor (Keep Shabbat) and Zachor (Remember Shabbat). We hear these in L'cha Dodi, too, when we learn that these two commandments were given in one breath!
