Shabbat Shalom!

It's August. Time to start thinking about the High Holy Days.

Take a moment to contact me to reserve for yourself and your family at our High Holy Day services at The Mansion in Voorhees. This will be my 23rd year as a cantor, and 7th officiating our South Jersey "Synagogue without Walls" services. Here are the details, please share with friends:  http://cantorborsky.com/?page_id=881


I'm so very proud of my
 b'nai mitzvah students!!! 

I'm so very proud I am of my awesome b'nai mitzvah students. Their hearts and souls are tremendous as they are making a difference in our community. The most important part about becoming a bar or bat mitzvah (son or daughter of the Commandments) is making your the world a better place because of your mitzvot. My tremendous students are certainly making our world a better place. I wanted to share just some of the blessings that my current students are giving us. The following is just a very partial list of some current charities, organizations and causes that these young men and women are helping:

- Helping children learn to read

- Winter clothing drive

- Toy collection for CHOP

- Book drive for Camden elementary school library

- Volunteering in local library

- Collecting gently used sports equipment for the needy

- Volunteering at local animal shelter

- Volunteering at animal refuge

- Soup kitchen

- MS Society

- Local Yellow Ribbon

- Pencils of Promise


If you're interested in helping or learning further about any of these mitzvah projects of my current students, please contact me.

B'shalom, Scott


If you've not finalized any decisions about religious training for your child, I'd be honored if you'd consider attending our Synagogue without Walls Judaica classes in September.
Do your children need more flexible Hebrew school classes because of their many wonderful weekend and after school activities? Your solution is our South Jersey Synagogue without Walls. YOU pick your schedule, one-to-one or small classes, weekday or Sunday.  Classes resume Sunday, September 10th.

I encourage you to contact me for various reasons, should you need the power of praying together.

1) Every Thursday I write 
my "list of healing" for the upcoming Shabbat. If you, any member of your family or any friends should need to prayer of "refuah sh'leima" (prayer of healing of mind, body or soul) please contact me. I will certainly add their names to my mishebeirach list.   

2) Every Friday morning I write my kaddish list. If you are saying kaddish for a loved one, but unable to attend a service on Shabbat, please contact me with the name and I will say the name at my service. Either private message me on Facebook or cantorscott@comcast.net.
3) Throughout the week, I do chaplaincy prayer or social visits in the Cherry Hill area. If you have a relative who is ill in a local hospital, hospice, nursing home or confined to your home, please contact me.
Just private message me on Facebook, Twitter, or at scott@cantorborsky.com. B'shalom, Scott

Thinking about a destination ceremony? Another state, another country, cruise ship?

What makes a service special, unique, holy and loving has nothing to do with the location, because, as we know, God is everywhere. What makes a service special, unique, holy and loving has everything to do with who is there - friends, family and loved ones. This is what makes a service special. Therefore, services can be held anywhere that is conducive and can accommodate the needs of the service.

Please contact me to discuss.
