Office Closed from Monday, October 18 -  Wednesday, October 20

We are so grateful for all of the time, effort, and dedication that our staff has put in to make these high holidays possible during these uncertain times. As a small token of our tremendous appreciation and to let the staff re-energize we will close the office, both physically and virtually, giving all the staff three days of additional vacation time.

Please refrain from emailing any of the staff. If you have a pastoral emergency Rabbi Katz will be on call those three days and will be taking a vacation at another time.

The loss of loved ones are remembered here within the
5782 Book of Remembrance
