An Erev Shabbat Note from Rabbi Cheses on Friday, October 13, 2023:

Dear Friends, 

It has been a grueling week, but we got through it together and we will continue forward with unbending resolve to support our Jewish homeland. 

As needs on the ground in Israel become better defined, we will continue to share additional ways in which we can help our brothers and sisters. In addition to sending out emails, we are going to organize our efforts through a list of Israel Support Resources on our shul website:  Also, we have a community coordinator, Nina Rogoff who will be connecting the dots between all of our remarkable efforts. She can be reached at:
