CONGREGATIONAL EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY
Have you ever wondered what happens to the old prayer books? Do you know what we do with them? We can't just throw them away, or recycle them, because they have the word of God in them. These prayer books have to be buried in a grave at the cemetery.
On August 18th we will have a book burial at Mikro Kodesh Cemetery in Chesapeake at 11:00am. The Rabbi will lead the burial and you can participate. There will be a breakfast beginning at 9:00 after minyan, the truck will be loaded, and then we will leave the synagogue and go to Mikro Kodesh. If you have loved ones buried at Mikro Kodesh Cemetery, the Rabbi will say a prayer at their grave for upcoming new year.
Please call the office and let us know if you would like to participate in this book burial.
The deadline is approaching and we can definitely use more items for Granby Elementary. We only have a few backpacks and would love to have some more to take to Granby Elementary. Office Depot/Office Max has backpacks starting at $10, if you're near one of those stores. As always, we thank you for your donations to this worthy cause!
The Jewish Museum & Cultural Center is a Non-Profit organization.
Our Mission is “To present an environment where visitors and the community can celebrate and learn about Jewish history, faith, and culture”
This program will provide funds to support our mission.
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.
