The High Holidays seem to sneak up on us each year. The time that should be spent emotionally preparing for and doing the real spiritual work for the New Year can often fade, only to get swallowed up by our busy lives. We are then left, as Rabbi Alan Lew wrote, "completely unprepared." But not this year!
All ages invited to meet at Montgomery Place at 4:40 pm for candlelighting, singing, and visiting with the residents.
Montgomery Place is the retirement community at 5550 South Shore Drive.
The mitzvah continues! The annual Rodfei Zedek food drive benefiting the Hyde Park-Kenwood Food Pantry is now underway! Please fill a bag with non-perishable items and return it to the synagogue lobby by Friday, September 28. See this year's wish list and suggestions for year-round donations. Many thanks for your participation, and shana tova!
