Mollie Wertheim is leaving the Utica area at the age of 104 amazing years. She isMollie looking forward to getting settled in her new home in New Jersey. She is so excited about the wonderful advantages she will have at her new home. Kosher meals will be available as well as a Rabbi and a whole new circle of friends for her to get to know. She said her heart will always belong to Utica and Temple Beth El but at 104 she is excited to experience a new challenge. She promises to keep in touch with us all. What an amazing woman.

She will be missed.


A Message from our Cantor

It's easy to get psyched up for the big game. Coaches know this; so do managers. When there is a special event, it is easier to attract people's interest and to get them to kick up their game. Facing a big challenge and accomplishing the assigned task can bring a feeling of exhilaration so strong that those involved will make all-but-unbelievable efforts to experience it again.


In their own way, the High Holidays are similar. After months of preparation, we spend a few days in an elevated state of holiness and communion with God. The intense self-appraisal of Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur, followed by the joy of Sukkot and Shmini Atzeret/Simchat Torah Is designed to leave us in a heightened state of spiritual awareness, if not ecstasy.
