Rabbi Daniel Sherman

It has been a while since we posted a Wednesday Message.  I hope everyone is doing well, having a good summer, and staying dry and safe.

            It was wonderful this past weekend welcoming so many people back to Temple with our Summer Union Shabbat Services.  We will be hosting our community Shabbat services throughout August.  Join us in the auditorium at 6:00pm for our Nosh – our pre-service Oneg Shabbat – and to wish each other a Shabbat Shalom.  Services will begin at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary.  This week is our “Back to School Shabbat” and School Supply Drive.  We are collecting needed school supplies for Kingsley House as we prepare for the beginning of a new school year.  Please stop by Temple this week to drop off donations or bring them with you on Friday evening.  We hope you will support this important drive for our community.

            While it was a feel-good weekend here at Temple, it was a very difficult time for those living in Israel.  Islamic Jihad in Gaza fired over 1000 rockets into Israel.  We pray that the cease-fire will hold and that Israelis will not have to live in fear for their safety and security.  SHAALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM – Let us pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all Israel, and may all of its inhabitants know joy and safety.

            I hope you will consider joining us this evening and on Sunday morning for our “Congregational Conversations,” as we discuss our upcoming clergy search and plans for the future.
