Please join us for an evening to usher in the High Holy Days for 5775. The evening will begin at 8:45 PM and conclude at 11:00 PM.
This year, the members of Congregation Shaarey Tikvah in Beachwood will join us for the service and program. Rabbi David Kosak and Cantor Gary Paller will join Rabbi Grundfast and Hazzan Stein in leading the Selichot service.
Following the service, refreshments will be served and the movie, “Dancing in Jaffa” will be screened. The film was released on August 12 and tells the story of bringing together Israeli and Palestinian youth to learn how to ballroom dance. The website for the movie states, “The film explores the complex stories of three children, all of whom who are forced to confront issues of identity, segregation, and racial prejudice as they dance with their enemy.”

Beth El Sisterhood is excited to announce a new ongoing Sisterhood program called Taste of Torah – 2014/2015. Taste of Torah is a lively, participatory Torah study connecting Torah to our lives. You do not need any prior experience studying Torah or knowledge of Hebrew to participate, just a desire to learn and a willingness to share and listen. We will meet the third Monday each month at 7:30 PM [unless otherwise noted] at different host homes. The study group will be led by Sarah Greenblatt, Sisterhood President, and others.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR FUTURE TASTE OF TORAH EVENTS
