Were you moved and just a bit grateful for our unprecedented 2020 High Holiday experience?
Did that first glimpse of the Sanctuary with Rabbi Gadi on the bima and Cantor Oded in Jerusalem take your breathe away when you realized that we were back home with new faces from new places?
Then I would like to remind you that if you have not yet contributed to our
High Holiday Matching Gift Campaign, we are waiting for you. Remember, your donation will be matched dollar for dollar. Together we can make this a block buster initiative that will support our ongoing and new programs. But we need you to make that happen.
Carol Seigel, Rebecca Seigel and Chris Browne
invite the congregation
to attend Saturday morning services
on October 17,
at 9:30 AM, on Zoom,
to celebrate the bar mitzvah of Gideon Browne.
Please join the family for this happy occasion.
In honor of the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg,
our Tifereth Israel Sisterhood will be identifying and discussing women of valor in our own lives. We will speak of how these women affected our lives either through personal or indirect contact.
Please join us to give homage to your personal woman of valor.
Zoom with us on Wednesday, October 28, 2020 at noon.
(Why not put it on your calendar today before you forget?)
See you there,
The October meeting of the Book Circle will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at noon, on Zoom. The selection for the month is The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit by Lucette Lagnado.
The Jews of Egypt are portrayed here against the cosmopolitan glamour of Cairo, and what happens when the man who wears the white sharkskin suit loses everything. It is a story of faith, tradition, tragedy and triumph.
The Book Circle meets each month to explore books on Jewish themes and Jewish writers. For more information, call the shul at 631-477-0232 and leave a message for Susan Rosenstreich, coordinator of the group.
The idea for a Lunch and Learn program was an initiative inspired by the shuttering of our synagogue in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The organizers of the program were concerned about helping members maintain a connection to the shul and each other while the doors were locked and everyone was sheltering in place at home. Enter Lunch and Learn.
Every Monday, Lunch and Learners zoom in (via Zoom, a videoconferencing antidote to the shelter-in-place restrictions) for sessions led mostly by our members. Recent offerings included a discussion on changes in the Middle East brought about by the Israel-UAE pact, the making of a golf champion, and the joys and pitfalls of running a B&B.
Each Thursday, Rabbi Gadi fills the noontime slot with probing questions about Judaism, often a follow-up to the theme of the Monday program.
Lunch and Learn will be on hiatus during the High Holiday season — no sessions on Mondays, Sept. 21 through Oct. 12 — and will resume on Monday, Oct. 19.
