One week from Wednesday night is Rosh Hashanah at 7:00 pm. The Shofar service will be in the morning service on Thursday between 9:00 am - 12:00 pm, followed by a nice meal. One of the amazing things about Rosh Hashanah is that for a day when G-d judges each of us and the world - there is no public confession. It is an entirely happy day. We must remember to be on our best behavior.  Please invite friends and family to the High Holiday Services - it is too joyous an occasion to exclude anyone from participating in this important fellowship in our cozy Temple 'home'.
