Rabbi Daniel Sherman

            Shalom from Temple Sinai!  I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy.  This is an exciting time here in New Orleans.  The countdown is on.  People are preparing floats, costumes and especially MASKS.  Laissez les bon temps rouler – because Purim is exactly one month away!

            Purim and Mardi Gras actually have a lot in common.  The worst part of the winter is behind us, spring is not that far off – it is time to celebrate and have fun, which is an important part of both holidays and observances.  So mark your calendars: we will be celebrating Purim at Temple on Wednesday evening, March 16 at 6:00pm and on Sunday morning March 20 with our Chavurah@Sinai students and families.  Stay tuned for information on community celebrations, including the JCC’s annual ADLOYADAH on Sunday, March 13.

            In the meantime, I hope that everyone enjoys the parades and festivities of this time of year in New Orleans.  Please stay safe and be careful!

            A reminder that our Shabbat Services this Friday evening will begin at 6pm and are available both in-person and online.  Our Vocal Ensemble will help to lead the music this week.  I look forward to seeing you at Temple.
