Torah Scribe Rabbi Joel Newman to visit August 21-24

And we have a second Torah!

We’re excited to host Rabbi Joel Newman as a very special guest at the end of the summer.
A scribe, a teacher and a former Navy Chaplain, Rabbi Newman guided us in the acquisition of our new scroll. We look forward to welcoming him as he brings our new Torah and repairs our old one.

August 23rd at 10:30am-Celebrate our Torah
During Shabbat morning services, we will celebrate and learn about our new Torah. Services will be followed by a festive kiddush.
