It was so wonderful, magical, reflective and joyous to spend the high holidays with you. This Friday, 10/25 at 7:30pm (note the special time, 7:30!) will be our first Kabbalat Shabbat together of the season, and it’s particularly special– this coming Shabbat marks the 1 year anniversary of the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. Synagogues across the country will be gathering together for what has been called ‘Solidarity Shabbat’- a time to connect to in our collective mourning and also in our collective resilience. Please see details below– Bnai Jacob will be collaborating with Temple Beth El, our Reform sister-shut in Jersey City.
SOLIDARITY SHABBAT will be at Bnai Jacob (176 West Side Avenue).
There is no more important time than now to be an Am Yisrael– A Jewish People. Looking forward to being with you this Friday for a lively service and oneg with a wonderful guest speak, our very own Professor Thomas Main.
Have a great rest of your week and see you Friday!
