Shavua tov — a good new week to you.
Join us on Shabbat morning at 9:30am for Shabbat services led by Rabbi Pam Wax.This week we’re reading from parashat Balak.
This week we are particularly trying to ensure a minyan so that Rabbi Pam can say kaddish for her brother Howard z”l. Please join us for Shabbat morning services and help to constitute a minyan for Rabbi Pam. Also if you plan to be present this week please let her know by Thursday; there will be a luncheon following services, during which she will offer a teaching about her brother.
