Dear Schomre Israel family,

Lucy and I had the zechus-merit on Tuesday of celebrating the marriage of our first grandchild Chanala, daughter of Shana, to Mordechai Seltzer in Bet Shemesh, Israel.

It is the beginning of a new chapter of our life  and most certainly in the life of the young couple. 

In the Shema,  we say thrice daily, "...and these words which I command you today shall be on your heart..." The rabbis comment in the Talmud, what does it mean today; the commandments were given over 3500 years ago?" The answer is "every day they should seem to you as new, as if they were given afresh today.  This, I believe, is the secret of a happy marriage and a happy life. Each and every day should be a new experience and a fresh start. Every morning we say Moseh Ani L'fanecha - Thank You for returning my soul. Each day is a new gift and we are thankful for each new start.

Rosh Hashana likewise, gives us the opportunity for a new and a fresh beg and fresh. We recall that this is the anniversary of the world, the day of the creation of mankins. Hashem. on His goodness gives of this chance, this reminder, that we start anew. Yom Kippur gives us the gift of wiping the slate clean.

May we all take adavntage of these great gifts, and look at ourselves as newly born with a new world waiting for us.

Shabbat Shalom and Shana Tova to all the family.

Looking forward to greeting you all in Shul.

Eliezer Langer.

 Back to School with the Morse School
The Jewish Social Action Coalition is once again supporting the students at the Morse School.  We are currently collecting backpacks and school supplies for the children. Black and white notebooks with wide lines are very much appreciated as well as other typical school supplies.
Additionally once school is in session in early September, we will be collecting non-perishable food supplies for the food pantry at the school. During the last academic year our congregation was most generous. Please continue this effort this year.  You may also choose to contribute gift cards to various local grocery stores. If you do so, the gift card will be used to shop for needed supplies.   
Any questions or concerns please contact
Sandy Corwin at 845-452- 2436 or Debby  Sullum at 845-705-3656.
