May3

Rabbi Daniel Sherman

I am still struggling to accept that May is here.  But, as I look at the calendar, I am very excited about all that will be happening this month at Temple.

            A few things to point out here at the beginning of the month.  This evening there is a Jewish Community Town Hall Meeting with U.S. Representative Troy Carter.  The event will take place from 6:30-7:30pm at Touro Synagogue.  The entire Jewish community is invited to participate.  Please register at the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans website: jewishnola.com.  I will look forward to seeing you there.

            This Friday, May 5, band members will be joining us for a Festive Musical Shabbat Service in the Feibelman Chapel at 6:30pm.  We will also be celebrating our May anniversaries and birthdays.

            It is hard to believe that today is our last official day of Hebrew School, and Sunday will be our last morning of Chavurah@Sinai for this school year.  It has been a great year of learning here at Temple.  I especially want to thank Mollie Sloter, who has stepped in as our interim Religious School Administrator, and all of our teachers for all that they do for our students, families, and congregation.  I am looking forward to our Confirmation Service, which this year will be held on Friday Evening, May 12, at 6:30pm in the sanctuary.

            Please mark your calendars for our special weekend as we honor and thank Cantor Joel Colman for his 24 years of service to Temple Sinai.  On Friday, May 19 we will hold a special service of appreciation at 6:00pm, followed by a Congregational Shabbat Dinner (please make your reservations).  Sunday, May 21 is CantorColmanFest here at Temple from 11:00am – 1:00pm.  It will be lots of fun with something for everyone.  Please plan on joining us for these fabulous events in honor of our beloved Cantor.

            Happy May!  See you at Temple!
