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.
A Message from our President
As we start this new year, I would like to thank everyone that has supported temple this past year whether it was by volunteering, attending services and events or monetarily. As I reached out for advice or assistance, no one declined my plea. .
A Message from our Executive Director
As I write this the High Holy Days are exactly one week away, it is a very busy time at all Temples and in all kitchens.
