Aug 26 9:30- 10:30MORNING SERVICE
Our traditional short shacharit service. It’s only an hour so it is a great way to start Shabbat morning off right with a connection to our spirits and the gift of the world around us.

10:30-12 TORAH STUDY Shoftim: Deut 16:18 -17:7 Forbidden Worship
What were the religious practices of the cultures surrounding ancient Israel? Rabbi Edleson has studied and taught Ancient Near Eastern religions and literature, and using the Torah portion as our starting point, we will explore, using recent scholarship, the relationship between Israelite religion and those around it.

Kiddush provided by Dorothy Goldstone

Join us around the fire for Havdalah, singing and s’mores around the fire pit in the yard of the synagogue. If there are songs you long to sing, let the rabbi know. 


(If you want to get on the e-mail list for Torah Study, just send a note to Each week, Rabbi Edleson sends out modern translations of the portion, and some questions to whet the appetite to learn. )
