Dear friends,

Here we go again. This year the High Holidays are even earlier than last year! Please mark your calendars for the following events and services. September and October as always are very busy months for Beth Shalom: that is why we are sending out this message before the summer vacation. Please make sure that you put the following dates on your calendar.

Friday, Sept. 7. at 730pm Kabbalat Shabbat at the congregational apartment. 
Rabbi Goor and Cantor Kent will lead this Shabbat to discuss the upcoming High Holidays. They will help us to reflect in order to set the mood and get into the spirit to observe Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Please coordinate with Carey Bernitz +393356348682 and Carol Ross +393408794687 to let them know what special dish you will prepare for our potluck dinner. Carey and Carol will then plan a dinner that is balanced with vegetables/ carbohydrates. Some meat or chicken dishes that are also associated with this holiday. Desserts, fresh fruits and wine are also welcome.
