Please join us on September 16, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. for an evening that will be spiritual and enlightening as we prepare our Torah scrolls for the High Holy Days.  The evening will include the Havdallah service and a night of reflection and study.  Rabbi David will lead our adults in a discussion around the most central themes of our high holy days and howe these themese speak to the complicated world of today.  

There will be a special youth program (ages 4-9)designed to have them think about the ways that these holy days relate specifically to them.

We will also enjoy a special oneg, the Selichot service, and a changing of the Torah mantles.
