The Sensational Seniors Tea


Selichot Services. Following the service we present “Jonah Goes on Trial!”

As the High Holy Days approach, we take me to reflect on our deeds of this past year. We make amends to our family, friends, and co-workers and get ready to ask forgiveness from God during the Ten Days of Awe.

Our ancestors introduced the Selichot service to aid us in our preparations for this special time of year.
A family-friendly worship service will be
Saturday, September 24th. at 7:00 p.m.

 During this service we will dress the Torah scrolls in their white mantels in preparation for the High Holy Days.

Following the service, we will present:
“Jonah Goes on Trial!”
Jonah disobeyed God’s command to travel to Nineveh and get the people to repent. Jonah will be brought up on charges for his actions (or lack thereof).

We welcome to the courtroom:
Judge – Steve Goldstein Prosecuting Attorney
Steve Idema – Defense Attorney – Jack Nolish
Jonah – Kevin Kaplan

The Caring Community Program

Our Spiritual Communal Family Helping One Another
Learn more about the Caring Community Program

This program is a way for us to live our Jewish values by caring for one another, helping each other in concrete ways, and becoming a spiritual, communal family.

Everyone can participate. 

Performing mitzvot are part of daily Jewish life. In the daily morning prayers, a passage from the Talmud (Shabbat 127a) enjoins us to honor our parents, do deeds of loving kindness, provide hospitality, visit the sick, and comfort the bereaved. 

Everyone’s life has different demands and whatever one can do is greatly appreciated and valued.

No mitzvah is too small!
