A Message from our Cantor

We will read Parshat Noach in October as we usually do. While it always falls in the Hebrew month of Cheshvan, it has been known to come up early in November (the last time was in 2016 and the next time will be in 2019).


At the end of the Parsha, we come across the story of the Tower of Babel.

A Message from our President

I would like to share this from the Accidental Talmudist:

A lovely little boy was holding two apples with both hands. His mother came in and softly asked her little boy with a smile:

My Sweetie, could you give your mom one of your two apples?

The boy looked up at his mom for some seconds, then he suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.

The mom tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.

Then the little boy handed one of his bitten apples to his mom and said: Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgment. Give others the privilege to explain themselves.

What you see may not be the reality.

Never conclude for others.

A Message from our Executive Director

How nice to be able to share the High Holy Days with family and friends at the Jewish Community Center. The auditorium looked warm and welcoming. The flowers in memory of Bernice and Martin Smith were bright and beautiful in the fall colors for Rosh Hashanah, and the Yom Kippur flowers in memory of William Kowalsky were pristine white, both added a feeling of celebration and reverence for observing the two holiest days of our year.
