Thank You to everyone who joined Rabbi Joel for our Annual Shabbat on the Meditation Steps on Friday, June 24th, In Person & via Zoom.  We were delighted to welcome both long-timers and new-comers, enjoy a beautiful service embracing both traditional elements and news of the moment, and experience a lovely sunset.

We are taking a little Summer Shabbat break from now through early September.



Hope you will join us on Friday September 9th, when services resume, In Person, and via Zoom.
