   We wish you and your families, both near and far, a very Healthy and Happy 2021.

It was an extraordinary 2020, as well as a highly different second half of 5780 & 

first half of 5781.  


   We cannot thank you enough for your presence, your suggestions, and your support, especially as we went virtual in mid-March.  We continued to offer Shabbat & Havdalah services, observe holidays large & small, enjoy educational activities, be there for your family’s life-cycle events, and much more.   A huge and special Thank You to Rabbi Joel (& his Zoom Team) for leading us this far and for more to come.  


      A reminder that our Shabbat services resume next Friday, January 22 at 6:00 pm, with a special Tween/Teen Schmooze with Rabbi Joel at 5:15 pm.  Updated Zoom information is forthcoming.

      Havdalah continues this Saturday evening at 5:45 pm; details are below.  If you haven’t joined us previously, please give us a try — we are a small, lively group for a little study, a little prayer, and discussion - a short way to end Shabbat & start the new week.


Please take note of our next round of Adult Learning with Rabbi Joel, starting Tuesday, February 2; preliminary details on the Coming Up page.
