Rabbi Daniel Sherman

What a nice Chanukah we celebrated this year!  It was wonderful to come together for Chanukah on the Avenue and a special Shabbat of Chanukah service this past Friday evening at Temple.  It felt so good to be together in person outside to light up the Menorah and sing the blessings and Chanukah songs.  The latkes and cookies were a nice additional treat.  Then on Sunday we continued our celebrations with a fun morning for our Chavurah@Sinai students, including a Chanukah Carnival with games and snacks.  We concluded with a special Menorah-lighting ceremony at the St. Louis Cathedral.  I want to thank everyone who participated in our Chanukah events and celebrations this year – and a special TODAH RABBAH (Thank you very much!) goes to our volunteers, staff, and leadership who made everything happen.

            This evening I invite you to join with Cantor Colman for Wednesday Night Live on Zoom at 7:00pm as he explores “Israeli Folk Music & Composers.”  It sounds like a great class that will take place this week and next week (Dec. 8 & 15).  Please join us online to learn more and to hear some beautiful music.

            We are excited to celebrate this Shabbat as Auden Emerson becomes a Bar Mitzvah during our Shabbat Morning Service at 10:30am.  Mazal Tov to Auden and his family!  I also want to remind our Religious School students and families that today is our final Hebrew School afternoon of the semester, and this Sunday will be our last Chavurah@Sinai classes for 2021.

            Please take care and I hope to see you soon!
