Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions


Shalom! Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are fast approaching. Rabbi Joshua Waxman will be leading our High Holy day services this year.   Barbara Weisman, Education Director, and Jon Rubin, Board Member-at-Large, are planning our children and teen programming. The teen and family services that have been so well received in the past, will of course continue this year. We are very excited to continue this enhancement to our high holiday observance.

Other "extras" will include the adult study havurah's engaging discussion series the mornings of Rosh Hashanah (first day only) and Yom Kippur, tashlich following Rosh Hashanah second day services, and of course, spiritually fulfilling services in the main sanctuary.

Members have been sent a packet containg all of the schedules, events, and activities, and the forms to purchase guest tickets and submit names to be included in the Yizkor Book. These forms should have been returned by September 12th.

 Please note that there are restrictions for parking at our beautiful home in Fort Washington. You must read the attachment below with all of our parking information.
