A Message from our Cantor

On the first Shabbat of February, we will be reading from Parshat Yitro, which means we will be reading the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments are generally acknowledged, both among Jews and among others, to be among the greatest sets of precepts for how to live a proper life. Their wide acceptance has provided a sort of ethical lingua franca. Even those who profess no faith at all will generally stipulate the majority of the ten (those concerning God and the Shabbat being the outsiders).

A Message from our President

With all that is happening in our world, I decided to join friends at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. observance at St. John's Baptist Church. There were attendees from all faiths, backgrounds and cultures and yet everyone had the same inspiration Dr. King emulated in his speech, "I Have A Dream." The gathering brought a true sense of community with the goal of getting along, acceptance of differences, understanding, and making the world a better place. Our community has its share of undesirable issues it has to face, but does that mean we need to allow it to continue? It has to start somewhere, so why not here? Let us, as a community, start building bridges, be more accepting of others, and continue to educate our community so that more understanding of each other can prevail.

A Message from our Executive Director

Dear Friends,

Let's go back in time and review some interesting facts about Purim.


Purim, the feast of Esther, is a holiday designed for and around a woman. Esther is the heroine, it is a story of loyalty, faith and courage. This story assures us that despite oppression and anti-Semitism, the prevailing tyrant, Haman will ultimately be over thrown.
