From Rabbi White's Study 


What We Gain When the Holy Days Work

For as long as I have breath, For as long as my soul is within me, I offer thanks to You, Adonai, my God  -Talmud Berachot 60b

Cantor Sergei has been including this beautiful prayer of gratitude in our morning services for some time now, and each time I hear it I find myself stopping and focusing on my breath, on how often I fail to notice this vital bodily function. Breathing.

From the President's Desk 


Jonathan Cheris

Dear Friends,

 The High Holy Days are upon us. On behalf of my wife Ann and I, along with our children Aaron and Sara, we want to wish you and your family health, laughter and hope that this year will be a wonderful one.  When you look into your heart as the New Year starts, may you discover a new sense of possibility, a new belief in the gifts you have to share, and a renewed commitment to your faith and your dreams. Happy New Year!

From the Cantor-Educator


Cantor-Educator Elena Schwartz  

A Goal for The New Year

As we stand at the threshold of the New Year 5777, our tradition implores each of us to engage in Cheshbon HaNefesh - examining our deeds during the past year and taking stock of the kind of person each of us will be in the coming year. Of the many Middot - moral virtues - which we are trying to instill in our children and in our entire Religious School community, Shmirat Ha'lashon - the ethics of speech - is perhaps the starting point for which Judaism strives.
