A LOOK BACK ON ROSH HASHANAH AT THE JCC OF LBI...
It can be safely said it was a Yontif not to be forgotten. The sanctuary looked beautiful, Rabbi Jay hit the mark with his sermons and our Hazzan Sarah Geller was "stellar." It was inspring; it was haimish; it was the JCC of LBI at his very best. And Rabbi's interview with
G-d (aka Don Prispstein) was a highlight of a wonderful service.

On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi took us on a wind-swept walk with Zoom from the Bay to the Ocean to say Taschlich and throw stones (not bread) into the ocean (the sea gulls were very disappointed.)


Yasher Koach to the Ritual Committee and the High Holiday Contingency Committee for all their hard work to put this all together.

Once upon a time, there was a Rabbi. He loved the Shabbat, he loved his congregation and he loved the beach. All was good in the land by the sea until a great plaque came upon the people. An edict was decreed that the people could not gather together in the synagogues and churches. They could not visit with their families. It was a frightening time for the people of the land.

The Rabbi knew that his people needed to come together for comfort and to be spiritually uplifted. But how to do this. They could not come to the beautiful synagogue building. He knew there were new ways to bring the people together but they were so different from how he had lived his life. But, he knew from the history of his people that this question had also been put before the Rabbis of old.

What to do... He spoke to others for advice. And so, after pondering this for many days and weeks, the Rabbi decided to put aside his ways at this time for the benefit of his people. The new ways were used to bring the people together for worship. And the Rabbi mastered these new ways. When the yearly festivals approached, the Rabbi with his advisors created joy throughout the land and the kingdom was grateful.

WAX PRESENTS
"THE SUSAN" OF SUSAN AND FRIENDS, Thursday, October 1st
7:45 PM

Susan will be interviewed by Sondra Helene (author of the novel "Appearances") about her Susan's new publication "A Palm Beach Scandal."
Veronica and Simon Cutler and their dazzling adult daughters, Elodie and Aubrey, strike an enviable pose, the ultimate Palm Beach family. In a town where social aspirations, wealth and charm prevail – they are transcendent. While the sisters are polar opposites, they are fiercely loyal to one another.
And then one stupefying secret, meant to be buried forever, is unearthed and no one in the Cutler clan is able to turn back. As the family is shaken to their core, Aubrey and Elodie must realize their places in the world and the lives they want to lead.
In the midst of the unforgiving opulence of Palm Beach, A Palm Beach Scandal is a story for our times. A captivating tale of discovery, sisterhood and love for others where you least expect it.

Dr. Jessica McCall completed her Ph.D. with a specialization in early modern studies and graphic novels under Dr. Evelyn Gajowski at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in May 2011. Dr. McCall's research interests focus specifically on representations of warrior women from Spenser's Radigund through the DC Comics character Wonder Woman. Dr. McCall takes a presentist approach to early modern literature examining modern resonances and myth across time.
