Religious Affairs Committee - August 2022

It is that time of year again, when this committee, Rabbi Schonblum and Merv begin thinking about the High Holidays

and the services for them. Once again, we encourage your participation in this endeavor. There are several ways to do this. You can open and close the ark, do a reading, request a Torah honor (aliyah), carry or hold a Torah, light candles, etc. In another part of this newsletter you will find a form for you to fill out stating your preferences. They are also available in the Temple. Please fill it out and return it to the Temple.


This year, the holiday schedule is as follows: Erev Rosh Hashanah is Sunday eve, September 25, First and Second Days are Monday and Tuesday, September 26 and 27 and Erev Yom Kippur (Kol Nidre) is Tuesday October 4 and Wednesday October 5. More detailed information will be forthcoming.


On Sunday, June 19 Rabbi Schonblum led a very interesting and stimulating discussion centered on numerology. We are all looking forward to the next one. I am happy to say that attendance at services has increased and it is nice to meet up with each other in this way.

Stay well and safe,


Sheila and Lynda
