Updates From The Rabbi

Sep 23 2014

Shalom all!

I’m very much looking forward to our High Holiday services this year at The Lake! It will be wonderful to celebrate the holidays with those of you whom I met over the summer, and meeting plenty of new friends.

The calendar, and the times for our services are listed online and have also been emailed or mailed to everyone. There are a couple of things I’d like to mention specifically.

First, we will join together on Thursday afternoon at 5:45pm at the state beach parking lot for a special Tashlich service.

On Friday night we will end Rosh Hashanah and usher in Shabbat with a special Healing Service that will include singing, chanting and Shabbat prayer; please join me at 7:00pm. Kiddush will follow.

We will have services as usual on Saturday morning beginning at 9:30 and followed up Kiddush.

It is customary, for a variety of reasons, to visit the graves of our departed loved ones before or during the High Holidays. We will meet at the Temple Beth El Cemetery at 10am on Sunday, September 28 for a brief memorial service and opportunities for reflection.

Yom Kippur: On Saturday, October 4, at 3:45pm, I will lead a study session and discussion about Judaism and Organ Donation. Miincha will follow.


May we all be inscribed and sealed for a sweet year of health, happiness, peace,  prosperity and blessing.

Shana tova,

Susan Elkodsi
