Congregants Good Afternoon,

I understand that there is some confusion about tonight's Shiva minyan. It will be at Fritzy Wolk at 8:00 pm as originally scheduled. The Congregation meeting will meet tonight at SBJC at 7:30 pm. For those who would like to attend our Friday morning Minyan we meet at 7:50 am at SBJC in the Chapel.

Thank you,
Evelyn Estrine


Good Morning,

For those people who will be paying a Shiva call to the Wolk family this week in the evening and are willing to take a few of our congregants with them, can you please contact the office. We have a few people who have difficulty driving in the evening.

Thank you in advance,



duss iz nisht a shpass. I just received the monthly message from yiddish wit. They title is beard but I think it should be bord un khazeyrim...beards and pigs. So let's read this one and the next four to the right and discuss them on Wed. It's too late to assign them so if a few of you prepare them we'll call on volunteers. You will need to have your own copy.

The establishment of the State of Israel was the fulfillment of a 2000 year old dream of Jews around the world. The impressive scientific, cultural, social and military accomplishments of the State are astounding especially when considering that all her neighbors from the day she was established have tried to destroy her.

It is considered a great mitzvah and responsibility to honor the Sabbath by lighting candles 18 minutes before sunset on Friday evening.

This unique commandment, entrusted to the Jewish woman, is rich with meaning and purpose.
