We go from strength to strength, from the solemnity of Yom Kippur to the joy of Sukkot.
Next Friday night, October 14th, you are invited to join us as we celebrate Shabbat in our beautiful Sukkah with Tot Shabbat at 5:30pm, a Community Shabbat Dinner for everyone at 6pm (in the Sukkah), and then at 7pm a Community Service that includes Consecration, an honoring of children who this year have begun Religious School. In the spirit of Sukkot, we are calling Consecration, “Seeds of Torah,” and mini-Torahs will be given to our congregation’s new students. The Torah is called “The Tree of Life,” and at Sukkot we see ourselves in the Garden of Eden surrounded by life giving trees and the fruits of nature. We are reminded of our responsibility to care for our fragile planet by recycling, composting and using green sources of energy. May Sukkot be a time of joy with friends and family in our community’s sukkah of peace.
Wishing you a Chag Sukkot Sameach,
Rabbi David Wilfond
