Ask The Rabbi
Due to the pandemic, we will not be holding our popular afternoon discussion this year. Instead Rabbi Weinblatt will field your questions, asked by Chris Gordon of NBC channel 4. To  watch the session, go to where you watched our high holiday services.
Your Support Would be Appreciated
The smoothness of this year’s High Holiday Services are the result of a lot of work, including the hiring of a professional production company to ensure the quality of our service, with editing, pre-recording work, on-site producers and engineers, renting of cameras, lighting, and sound equipment – all of which requires considerable expense and effort to provide and ensure an experience that is meaningful and uplifting. Any donation you wish to make in honor of the holiday will help with the cost of providing the high quality High Holiday experience and services we have been enjoying.
All donors will be acknowledged at the end of services.
