Thanksgiving Interfath Service and Community Dinner

THANKSGIVING INTERFAITH SERVICE AND COMMUNITY DINNER will be on November 19, 2017

We have missed having a formal interfaith service and we're bringing it back.

The Walden Interfaith Council has renewed the program and rolled both service and dinner into one evening.

We will have a formal interfaith service on November 19, at 5:00 PM.
All the religious leaders in our area have been asked to lead prayers of thanks.

Nava Herzog will represent Congregation Beth Hillel.

Sukkot Family Program

On Sunday, October 8th, our congregation had its own miracle.

Our family Sukkah program was in jeopardy because of rain and more rain. It rained through the Lulav lesson and on our plans. 

And then....suddenly, the sun appeared!

Precisely at 10 a.m. (the time of our original plan to decorate the Sukkah), we saw a ray of sunlight peak through the window.
Thankfully, we were able to complete our decorations, shake the Lulav and enjoy blessings and goodies.

It was our own Sukkah miracle.

Mischling by Affinity Konar Submitted by Sandy Curry

Pearl is in charge of: the sad, the good, the past.

Stasha must care for: the funny, the future, the bad.

It's 1944 when the twin sisters arrive at Auschwitz with their mother and grandfather. In their benighted new world, Pearl and Stasha Zagorski take refuge in their identical natures, comforting themselves with the private language and shared games of their childhood.
