Rabbi Daniel Sherman

We did it!  We have made it through our Fall Holiday Season.  Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, followed five days later by our week-long Sukkot Festival concluding with our Simchat Torah celebrations – all are now behind us.  With no more holidays to promote, what do we do now?  WE START ALL OVER AGAIN!

Now the New Year 5783 is really underway, and we turn back to the very beginning of the Torah.  This week our Torah portion – BEREISHEET – is the first few chapters of the book of Genesis.  We read the Torah’s stories of creation and of the first human family.

And we might be out of holidays to celebrate for the next couple of months, but each week we have Shabbat to look forward to.  It was wonderful to have so many people join us for High Holy Day services – what a feeling of community and togetherness we shared in our sanctuary.  I hope we can find ways for those feelings and spirit of holiness to continue in the New Year.  So please consider joining us for Shabbat Services.  On Friday evenings, we are continuing with our pre-service Shabbat Shalom Nosh from 6:00-6:30pm in the auditorium.  Our Shabbat Evening Service begins at 6:30pm.  On Saturday mornings, Torah Study begins at 9:15am in the library, followed by our Shabbat Morning Service at 10:30am in the chapel.

We hope to see you soon at Temple!  Shabbat Shalom!
