Rabbi Daniel Sherman

            Somehow we are already halfway through September, and there is already a lot going on at Temple Sinai.  It was wonderful welcoming all of our students back for the first day of Chavurah@Sinai this past Sunday.  We are excited about another wonderful year of learning here at Temple for our kids.

            This evening I will wrap up our first Adult Education Class of the season as part of Wednesday Night Live.  We will continue our discussion about preparing for this year’s High Holy Days.  Please consider joining us at 7:00pm this evening on Zoom.

            Rosh HaShanah is less than two weeks away, so it is really time to get ready.  I hope that everyone will take some time to reflect on this past year (5782) in order to help us prepare for the New Year (5783).  We have two special services this week to help us get ready for our High Holy Days.  Plan on joining us on Friday, September 16 for our Musical Shabbat Service.  This week we will feature our wonderful choir and organ and begin to introduce the melodies of the Days of Awe.  Services are at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary, with our pre-service nosh beginning at 6:00pm in the auditorium.

            This Saturday evening, Sept. 17, we will hold our Selichot Service.  The purpose of this special evening is to help get us in the mood for the High Holy Days and to introduce us to the music, prayers, and themes of these Days of Awe.  We will begin with a dessert reception in the auditorium at 7:30pm, followed by our Selichot Service at 8:00pm in the Sanctuary.  Don’t let Rosh HaShanah sneak up on you – now is the time to prepare.  Our Selichot Service is a wonderful way to help prepare.

            I hope that you will check the Temple Sinai website, our weekly email messages, and the September bulletin for all of our High Holy Day information.  A friendly reminder: please make your reservations for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur services this year.  We are so excited to welcome everyone home to Sinai this year.  Please let us know when you will be joining us so that we can be prepared – we cannot wait to see you.

            L’Shanah Tovah!
