This week's special guest, Temple member

Lauren moved to Long Beach with her husband, Stuart and her 3 boys, Aaron, Jakob and Nathan, in 2010 from Chicago, IL. She spent a lot of her time hanging out with her boys at the Alpert JCC where Nathan, the youngest, attended the preschool. It was there that she began to build her community. A year later in 2011, her family joined Temple Israel. All the boys became Bar Mitzvahs at Temple Israel.
Lauren is involved in many organizations in Long Beach and the ones nearest and dearest to her are those within the Jewish community. 

Join us for what should be a fun and interesting discussion!
Havdalah, Discussion & Service
This Saturday, September 12 at 7:30 pm
Selichot is the time we formally get ourselves prepared for the High Holy Days (Selichot are defined as the penitential poems and prayer we say as we reflect on the past year and consider what we may need to seek forgiveness for).

Selichot are special prayers for forgiveness, said on fast days and also during the period preceding Yom Kippur. At the Selichot service, worshipers begin to examine their deeds of the past year, seeking forgiveness from God and promising to improve their behavior in the New Year.

This year our Selichot evening will begin with Havdalah at 7:30 pm, and will be followed by a discussion led by Rabbi Fox, and Selichot Service with Rabbi Fox and Cantor Hass, as we welcome the High Holy Days. Please join us via Zoom or Facebook Live (if you would like to participate in the discussion, please use the Zoom link).
