Congregation Beth Shalom

From the President:  Please join us this weekend for Yom Kippur services. We look forward to Jane Pitt chanting Kol Nidre accompanied by cello Friday evening. Vicki (Alexander) Herriott and Daniel Blum will be speaking and our resident Torah scholar Bob Rabinoff will address us via prepared remarks. You won’t want to miss any of these presentations. Our Yom Kippur service will conclude on Saturday evening with a candle lit havdalah service.        
        For those who signed up, a light break-fast meal will follow services on Saturday. Please bring a bottle of fruit juice to share at your table. Late comers should call me or Susan (472-9509) to see if you can be accommodated.  
        Many thanks to those who have already made their annual membership contribution. All others are encouraged to pitch in now so our Jewish home in Fairfield continues to flourish and grow. We can’t do it without you.  
L’shana Tova. May you all be inscribed in the Book of Life for another sweet year of peace and prosperity. …….. Marc Berkowitz
