We are very excited to announce that the shul's progressive dinner will be December 19 at 7:30 PM! The progressive dinner will be a very enjoyable evening replete with good food, the opportunity to meet members of our shul that you may not know as well and fun entertainment. The progressive dinner format is designed to facilitate this as all participants will have the opportunity to enjoy the first two fully catered courses at different host's homes with three other couples. Everyone then meets back at the shul for a sumptuous dessert sponsored by the sisterhood and fun entertainment featuring renowned hypnotist/mentalist Ronnie Baras!
Any questions, please contact any of the committee members, Nitza Adler, Gila Ginsberg, Lois Goldsmith, Alisa Hercman, Riki Kreitman, Chani Wiesel, or Honey Wisotsky. Reservations are $25 per person.

Parshas Ki Savo describes that Hashem heard the voices/supplications of the Jewish people. May Hashem hear each of our voices as they ascend from the depths of our hearts to the heights of the shamayim (heavens), and may our efforts make our tefillos more effective and meaningful as well as bring nachas to every one of us and great simcha to our lives as we each do our part to grow closer to Hashem.
