Religious Affairs Committee January 2021



I love being Jewish! Want to know why? Every year we get two chances to wish our friends and relatives good wishes for the upcoming year. The first time is at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and the second time is now, for the secular new year.

Also, at this time of year we celebrate the festival of Chanukah which is a fun and joyous

occasion. We eat latkes, donuts, exchange gifts, and realize that sometimes miracles do happen!

I think we all agree that this year, in particular, a miracle would be very welcome.

With that in mind, I want to thank all the people who keep our religious services ongoing. Thank you Rabbi Schonblum for leading the services, your phone calls for our wellbeing and your inspirational messages. Thank you Merv for all you do for this congregation every day.

Our services could not be streamed without Manny, Larry, and Steve. You keep us connected. I also want to thank the members who have agreed to attend a streaming service, when asked and volunteer to do some English readings. A special thank you to Malka for volunteering her services as our cantorial soloist.

Let’s hope 2021 will be a good and healthy and spiritually fulfilling new year.
