The High Holidays 5772 – 2021
Prepare for the High Holidays

During the month of Elul, August 9 - September 6, 2021, Jewish tradition instructs us to prepare ourselves spiritually for the High Holidays and begin the work of repentance. In order to enable our entire community to take part in the spiritual work of Elul, we will be sending out the “e-lul” daily email with a text, prayer, or poem to help us get in the right frame of mind for the holidays.

Hope you find them inspirational and thoughtful!

Meet Rabbi Jay, and Continue the Journey
We have begun to plan introductory “Meet and Greets” with Rabbi Jay at the homes of various congregants. 

If you want to host a Meet and Greet, or attend one, please contact one of the three of us. We have been tasked with helping ease the Congregation through this new journey and want and need your input to do so in the best way possible. Please share your thoughts, concerns and ideas with us as to how we can better move forward.

From the Social Action Committee!
We have an opportunity to do a wonderful mitzvah this summer!
Both Camp Pinebrook and Kehillah have food leftover from their lunchtimes each day...We don't want it to go to waste, so we'd like to organize volunteers to pick up the food at temple and drive it over to HOPE at 1:00 pm daily, Monday through Friday.
Can you help? Please click on the link below to take a look at the Sign Up Genius and sign up to help a couple of days this summer.
Thank you and stay cool!😎
