Worship With Us
This Weekend

Join us for this start to Shabbat  with a Pre-Oneg at 5:30pm and services starting at 6:00pm.
We'll be having Shabbat morning services every week from 9:30am - 10:30am. The service is a lovely, meditative, and peaceful way to start the day. Whether we have five or fifty, we'll be mixing traditional chanting with songs both old and new tunes to create a prayerful space for connection.
TORAH STUDY ~10:30am
Torah study with bagels and coffee will begin at 10:30am and go until 11:45ish. We'll look at both modern scholarship, traditional commentary, and considering how these ancient texts can help us explore our own spiritual lives, our values, and what it means to be human.

Mazel Tov to Zach Loiter

On Saturday, June 16, Zach Loiter, son of Aimee and Jeff Loiter, received the designation of Eagle Scout.

Eagle Scout  is the highest  achievement  or rank attainable in the  Boy Scouting  program of the  Boy Scouts of America  (BSA). The designation "Eagle Scout" was founded over one hundred years ago. Only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted this rank after a lengthy review process.  The requirements necessary to achieve this rank take years to fulfill.

We congratulate Zach on this great achievement!
