We wish a Mazal Tov to Lindsay & Adin Pearl on the birth of their son.


This year's Yom Kippur was the best one yet. We welcomed more than 400 people over the course of the day and services were especially beautiful. 


We are grateful to our cantors, Meir Shapiro and Neil Kitainik for their beautiful and perfectly-timed davening. They skillfully and precisely moved text along as they moved us, inspiring us with beautiful and thoughtful moments of prayer and song.


We also thank Neil Kitainik for his Torah reading, Choni Bellino and Elie Yudewitz for their ushering and gabbaing, (also) Choni and Keshet Bellino for their help in setting up the sanctuary, Chaski Naor for sponsoring the breakfast, and Romano and his staff for their hard work in preparing and maintaining our building.


Adina Lichtman's leadership and energy were particularly inspiring. Yesterday over 150 sandwiches were prepared and distributed to our less-fortunate neighbors. Her devotion to the greater community is unparalleled. This tzedaka campaign was funded by your "Cruelty-Free Kapparot" donations and the surplus was sent to Adina's not-for-profit, Knock Knock Give a Sock. Please consider helping her to continue and expand her important altruistic vision.


At Kol Nidrei - Rabbi Bellino spoke about the synagogue that we choose and devotedly attend and improve. If his vision spoke to you, if you have benefited from it, or if you would like to see it enlarged further, please consider participating in our Kol Nidrei Campaign. Your support is essential - not only for our continued success - but to help us in our much needed re-building. I remind you that any amount helps our efforts and lifts our spirits.
