Shabbat Rocks!

Friday, May 19 * 7 pm

Bring your families to this wonderful evening, with a live band playing some of today's most upbeat Jewish music. You will find yourself tapping your toes, clapping your hands and dancing to these contemporary melodies. Multiple musical genres are woven through the service, highlighting text from each of the Psalms, which creates an energizing and engaging service. A special prayer book has been created to offer Hebrew, transliteration and English to make this service user friendly. Listen to and download tracks from our website. Services will be held in the Linden Family Courtyard, weather permitting. 

The April oneg is sponsored by Phyllis & Sidney Reisman. 

Future dates: June 16, July 21, August 18.

More than 300 congregants, friends and community members walked the red carpet on Sunday, October 30th at our Sesquicentennial Gala Premiere, as we raised a remarkable $270,000 for our Ensuring the Future endowment campaign, through commemorative ads, sponsorships, auction bids and donations.  It's not every day that a synagogue celebrates 150 years, especially a history as rich as ours!  As we wrap up our year-long anniversary celebration, we hope you agree that this has been an amazing year of "honoring the past, celebrating the present and ensuring the future."
