- Re-designed Room Arrangement for Yom Tov
Deepest gratitude and thank you to Shalom Mizrahi, Sammy Shoshan and Rabbi Moldovan for the highly improved room setup for the High Holidays and Yom Tovim. It was with imagination and many hours devoted to re-designing the mechitzah and seating arrangement that the congregation women were able to fully participate in the services.

Will you help with Shabbat Kiddush at the American Legion building during the winter season?

- Sad News Revisited
Recently, we have been very sorry to announce the passing of three well remembered members of our Congregational Family; Zoltan Guttman, z”l, passed away September 8, Benjamin Kovensky, z”l, passed away October 4 and Shirley Zwecker, z”l, passed away October 8. The sad news was sent to the shul membership by email at the time of the funerals. Shiva was either shortened or postponed in deference to the Yom Tov.
