I n this smash hit musical based on the hit songs of ABBA, young Sophie is ready to get married to her fiancĂ©e Sky, except for one thing - she has never met her father and wants him present for the big day. She invites three men that she discovers in her mother's diary and believes to be candidates, but when they all arrive, Sophie's mother Donna becomes distressed. As Sophie, Sky, Donna, her friends, and the three potential fathers prepare for the big day, emotions run high and surprises abound.

Camp Newman Hit by the Fires

It is with much sadness that I share with you that Camp Newman lost most of their facilities in the fire that has destroyed much of Santa Rosa.  No one from camp was injured in the fire (camp was evacuated) along with the Camp Torah scrolls.  While the camp was covered by insurance, funds will needed to help recreate the uniqueness of this Jewish summer home for so many of our children.  While plans are not yet set, already funds have been established to help the rebuilding process. If you want to assist in this process now please go t
With strength we will move forward together to assure our children and their children a place to embrace their Jewish heritage through retreat and summer programming.
Rabbi Bruce D. Greenbaum
