Please join us for a kiddush luncheon in Sandler Hall following services
On APRIL 28TH, the Men's Club is having a Yom Hashoah brunch, which will begin at 10:00am. Natasha Vidan will be the speaker. Her story is amazing - she was born Jewish in a concentration camp. Somehow, her parents got her out and to an orphanage to save her. She was adopted and raised Catholic but discovered, as an adult, she was actually Jewish. You will want to come to this event as there is so much more to her story. Please call the synagogue office to make your reservations.
Then on May 1st, we will be hosting the community wide Yom Hashoah program at 6:45pm with guest speaker, Dr. Roger Loria. This gathering honors the survivors, liberators, and righteous gentiles who reside in Hampton Roads, as well as the memory of the victims.
Just a reminder - if you would like to come in and cook something special for a Shabbat kiddush luncheon, just let the office know. We will be happy to check your food in and show you around the kitchen. Maybe you have a special dish that you would like to share with the congregation - you're more than welcome to come in and prepare it during office hours. And the congregation certainly would like to try it!
Our morning minyan and Friday night minyan could use your help!
A number of our regulars are unable to attend due to illness, and some mornings we are not able to make 10 people. It's particularly important on Mondays and Thursdays when we read Torah, but there are people every day who need to say kaddish. We have also had a problem for the past couple of weeks making a minyan on Friday evenings. Please look at your schedule and pick one morning a week to come to our 7:30am minyan - it's only 30 - 60 minutes and you will be doing a mitzvah by allowing people the opportunity to say kaddish for a loved one. If you can't make the morning minyan, please come on a Friday evening at 5:30.
