Shavua tov! Looking forward to Shabbat Ha’azinu – and to Yom Kippur.

Dear Congregation Beth Israel members and friends,

Shavua tov / a good week to all!

Join us this Tuesday and Wednesday for Yom Kippur. Here’s a note about some of our customs of Yom Kippur; you’ll find a schedule of the services and experiences we’re offering at the end of that post.

Join us also this coming Saturday morning for Shabbat morning services led by Rabbi Jarah Greenfield, where we’ll read from parashat Ha’azinu.

Many thanks to our shamashim, the members who host our Shabbat services each week. If you would like to join that group, please contact the office.

G’mar chatimah tovah — may we all be sealed for good in the year to come. See you on Yom Kippur.
