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.

The Bones of Time by Liliane Richman (Goodreads Author) Submitted by Sandy Curry

Like so many children of war, Liliane Richman grew up with a fractured past. Memories escaped her. As an adult Liliane began to feel the need to reconstruct her past, not only to understand the people she loved, but also to create a fuller picture of herself. Bones of Time is the story of a family, linked by love and a common search for home: Liliane; her father, a Hungarian tailor who travels to Paris to make his fortune; her mother, a sad and beautiful EmigrE from Germany; Fred, the eldest son, Liliane's beloved brother and protector.
