Purim is 3 Days Away!

Dear Friends:

Purim, now 3 days away, is being planned by the Committee for Purim Dysfunction. Allow me to take this opportunity to provide you with some sense of the schedule as well as various volunteer and sponsorship opportunities.

Taanit Esther, March 9 - Since Purim falls on a Saturday night, the fast will be observed on Thursday, March 9. The fast begins at 4:57 AM and generally concludes at 6:27 PM. Of course, the force of law is (barely) Rabbinic, so the fast may be broken at Sunset (5:56 PM) should you experience discomfort.Read more...

Dear friends,

As we begin a new cycle of Torah reading and study, I ask that you consider joining our synagogue in Tanakh Yomi, our (near) daily study of Bible that facilitates its completion in one year.
