From Rabbi White's Study 


A Post Election Pre-Chanukah Teaching

The Jew as a Lamp Lighter

At the turn of the 20th century in Poland, a local mayor asked the visiting Rabbi Sholom DovBer of Lubavich this question: “Rabbi, what is a Jew’s task in this world?” The rabbi answered: “A Jew is a lamp lighter on the streets of the world.

From Rabbi Gordon's Study

Giving Thanks

Blessed are You Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, who gives strength to the weary.

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, who removes sleep from the eyes, slumber from the eyelids.

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, who has made me free.

Chanukah Returns to Temple Sinai With 8 Nights of Giving!

Has there ever been a time when a gift received on Chanukah sat in a drawer unnoticed for a long time?  Have you ever found an expired gift card received during the holidays in the pocket of your favorite jacket – years later?  Have you ever given a gift to a child or grandchild, only to see a sour face since it was not what they wanted because they have most everything?

From Our Nursery School


Debbie Neuschatz, Nursery School Director  

December brings us the winter, Chanukah, New Year's Eve and, of course, for children, presents. The holiday season, which should be a reminder of love, peace and goodwill, becomes a time for getting gifts. Beginning in early October, our children are exposed to all sorts of advertisements for every type of product a child might hope to have.
