Religious Affairs - March 2021

As I sit here and write this article I am filled with a degree of optimism that we are are on our way to a more normal life, thanks in great part to the vaccines available to us. We will still have restrictions in our daily lives, but we can plan to enjoy two joyous springtime Jewish holidays, Purim and Passover. The Religious Affairs Committee met last week and along with Rabbi Schonblum have planned the following services.


Purim will be observed in our synagogue on Thursday evening, February 25 at 7PM. The services will be streamed. The Megillah will be read and you will need to provide your own noisemakers, pots and pans and spoons to bang on them,etc when Haman" name is read. We are also looking for 2-3 volunteers who will read the Megillah in English. Call me and let me know you will agree to do a reading.


On to Passover, once again we will stream our holiday services. Join us on Sunday, March 28 at 10 AM, and also Saturday morning April 8 at 10 AM. Yizkor will be said at that time.


We are currently working on a Yom HaShoah program for April 8. Details to follow. If you are a Holocaust survivor or know someone who is, please let me know so you can be included in this special tribute.


Once again, Todah Rabbah to everyone who prepares for and takes part in our weekly Shabbat services. It is a very vital service and helps us all be connected with each other. I am always looking for one volunteer for each service to do a reading. If you would like to participate in this way, please let me know.


Until next month stay well and safe,


Sheila
