The presentation is free and all are invited.


On Saturday night, immediately following Musical Havdalla, Rabbi Bellino will play guitar for the Kommunity Kinder. Children and their parents are invited to attend.


In these tragic and scary times we stand with all those victimized by senseless hatred and fanaticism, at home, in Israel, and abroad. We pray for safety, healing, and peace.


We offer blessings of consolation to the Bigel Family upon the passing of Madeline's mother, Lenore Kolsky.


We are grateful to Rabbi Andrew Scheer for delivering the sermon during services last Shabbat, and to Rabbi Josh Yuter, who was our guest speaker for Seudah Shelishit.


We thank Caroline Berti and Cori Robinson for making Tuesday night's hat-making class such a fun and enjoyable event.


Our Whiskey Wednesday fundraiser was a great success! We are grateful to our very generous participants: Norma & Victor Bellino, Anya Glikson, Aliyah & Michael Gluckstadt, Kenneth Grumer, Terry & Jack Lebewohl, Francesca Macaluso & Dr. Micah Timen, Alexia & Harris Marks, Rav Judah Mischel (in honor of Choni’s Bar Mitzva), Alan Schwartz, Caroline Tell & Evan Gasman, and Shelly & Elie Yudewitz.


Torah Readers: We are looking for men who can prepare to read at Shabbat Mincha (and possibly at Shacharit during the week as well) throughout the year. A schedule of readers is now being prepared. If you can commit to any dates, please contact Rabbi Bellino. We are grateful to Henry Reininger who read last week, and to Elie Yudewitz who will read this week. The next available Mincha leining is on December 9th (the afternoon reading is Miketz). We are looking for women to prepare aliyot for a Women’s Torah Reading  in the near future. Rabbi Bellino is happy to help anyone learn how to read torah to prepare a reading.


Please continue to assist our weekday morning Minyan. Consider increasing your commitment to community and synagogue by attending.


Our plentiful and delicious Kiddushes on Sixth Street greatly enhance our synagogue and community. To sponsor or to co-sponsor a Friday night Kiddush, a Shabbat Kiddush, a Shabbocktail, our Shabbat Shabeer supply, or a Seudah Shelishit, contact Rabbi Bellino. The next available Kiddush for sponsorship is December 16th (Shabbat Chanukah).



Come celebrate Chanukah with our Kommunity Kinderlach! Our annual children’s Chanukah party will take place on Sunday, December 10th (from 3:00-5-00 PM) and will be filled with activities, crafts, music and food! Please go to the event page to register.





FOUNDATIONS OF JUDAISM: A sensitive and sophisticated introduction to Judaism, intended for beginners, and focusing on many of the ritual, legal, linguistic, and philosophical basics of our faith. Wednesdays 6:30-8:00 PM.

PIRKEI D'RABBI ELIEZER: Rabbi Bellino will present the often strange, occasionally esoteric, and rather entertaining, late (most likely) Palestinian Midrash. Wednesday 8:00-9:00 PM.

SHACHARIT: Miriam Kaplan on Shacharit, the daily morning prayer. Shabbat, following Kiddush.
