Please remember - our email address has changed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

So please make sure you change our email address in your contacts.

IN-PERSON SHABBAT SERVICES ARE COMING BACK

Have you missed in-person services and seeing your friends at the synagogue? Well, if so, you will be happy to know that, beginning in August, we will be having in-person services every Shabbat. Services will also be live streamed and on Zoom for those who are still not comfortable coming back, or who are unable to come to in-person services.

However, due to the very contagious Delta variant of the Coronavirus - we have changed our protocol for attending services. You MUST be vaccinated to attend services and everyone attending services MUST wear a mask. When services are over, you will be asked to leave your prayer books in your seat so we will know which seats need to be sanitized.

Also, there will only be one Zoom number for all services, rather than a different number for Shabbat services and a different number for minyan services. That Zoom information is as follows:

We look forward to seeing you in August!


As stated above, beginning in August, we will have in-person Shabbat services every Saturday, not just the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month.

JFS Food Pantries NEED YOUR HELP!
The need for food and household items is not over. The JFS Food Pantries are especially in need of items that SNAP benefits do not provide. This includes paper items (toilet paper, paper towels and tissues) and cleaning products (laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid and disinfecting wipes.) The pantry seeks replenishment of essential items such as ground beef, fresh chicken, canned proteins like tuna and chicken, in addition to pasta, pasta sauce and canned fruits and vegetables. Please drop off non-perishable food items in the box located in front of the Sandler Family Campus and frozen foods at the Security Desk. You can be an angel from home as gift cards and online donations enable JFS volunteers to shop for these essentials. Call JFS at 757- 459-4640 or visit jfshamptonroads.org.

Bringing To Life Back To Life

The Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater is in the process of updating To Life: Stories of Courage and Survival, a collection of 67 personal stories published in 2002.

A large number of the individuals in the book have passed away, and the Commission is looking for additional information that might update and/or add to their original stories. We are also looking for updated photos, both of those profiled in the book, featured alone or with family members.

In addition to updating existing stories, the Commission is interested in adding accounts unrecorded in the previous edition. Also welcome are stories of local rescuers and Righteous Gentiles not previously known to the Commission.

If you have information to share, please contact Elka Mednick at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The office is now open from 10:00am - 2:00pm, Monday - Friday.
