The 5777 High Holiday season has come and gone, and I want to thank each of you who attended one or more of our services for making this High Holiday season at Congregation Beth Shalom meaningful and successful.
As always, Rabbi Alan Greenbaum did an outstanding job in leading us in worship, and stimulating us with his sermons and presentations. Our musician, Rebekah Hood provided a beautiful moving cello rendition of Kol Nidre to set the tone for Yom Kippur.
I want to thank each of you who contributed to our Annual Food Drive Mitzvah Project. The donation we made to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard at Saint Andrews Church was our largest ever, and very much appreciated, as we delivered over 25 bags of sorely needed food and paper goods.
Our regular monthly services will resume on November 18/19, and I want to extend an invitation for all to join us on a regular monthly basis (we meet on the third Friday/Saturday of each month). Our Pot Luck Dinners preceding Friday services will continue at the Marysville Buddhist Church (located at 125 B Street, Marysville – just around the corner from our synagogue), followed by services at 7:30, with Torah Study and Adult Education at 10 AM on Saturday. We will have an informal ‘breakfast with the Rabbi’ prior to our Torah Study at 9:30, so feel free to bring along a bagel and coffee to nosh on as we have a freewheeling discussion for 30 minutes or so.
I do hope to see you there for some or all of our monthly activities.
Tony Kurlan, President
