We have passed through the non-stop Fall holiday phase, hopefully feeling grateful for the life that God has blessed us with. We have now entered a nearly two-month period without any holiday celebrations until Chanukah. Now what? What can fill the gap? Just leave it me; I have some suggestions:
Commit to attending weekday morning minyan once per week. By doing so, you will ensure a minyan for those of us reciting Kaddish, be it as mourners or for a yahrtzeit. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy breakfast with a lovely community of fellow congregants. It is a great way to start the day!
Attend either Friday evening services or Shabbat morning services once per month. Friday evening services are one hour, filled with singing and joy. Shabbat morning services are less than 2 ½ hours, complete with Torah discussion and a delicious Kiddush lunch.
If you did not fill out The ReJewvenation Initiative card on Rosh Hashanah, we have just a few left. Let me know and I would be happy to send you one. The life blood of a congregation is its volunteers. Do you want to be one of many who have voted that they want Tree of Life*Or L’Simcha to continue its rich 154-year history? If yes, then step on up to assure that it is so. There must be one committee that resonates with you.
Do you have an idea for an adult education class or series? Perhaps a program? Let’s talk. Call me. My office number is (412)521-6788 x105.
Perhaps you would like to learn how to chant Torah or Haftarah? Call me.
Perhaps you might like to chant the Haftarah on the anniversary of your Bar or Bat Mitzvah, but are very rusty. Call me.
Perhaps you never became a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Call me.
Did you notice a repetitive phrase? As mentioned several times, I am your Jewish tour guide on the journey called life. How might I make your journey more meaningful? Call me.
