The past several weeks were busy for our congregation
and the religious affairs committee. We have just concluded
the festival of Passover. It began with a wonderful Seder
held on the first night of the holiday. Rabbi Schonblum conducted
the seder, involved all of us in singing the traditional
melodies that are unique to this holiday and reading passages
from the Hagaddah. Barbara Senfeld and her committee
did a great job organizing this event that was very
well attended .Everyone loved it. Todah Rabah.
On the concluding day of Passover the Rabbi conducted
services which included the Yizkor prayer in which we
remember our departed family and friends.
This was followed by Yom Hashoa on Thursday, April 28.
The committee, under the guidance and leadership of Merv
Levin put on a program honoring those who survived the
Holocaust and ended with the singing of Hatikvah (which
means Hope). It was very moving and I want to thank
everyone who participated in and attended this event.
Shavuot is the next holiday coming up and you will be notified
soon as to when our services will be held.
Lynda and I thank you for your continued support of our
functions and urge you to attend services and volunteer . It
is great to be a part of a tradition like ours.
Sheila and Lynda
