RABBI MOSHE ELBAZ    הרב משה אלבז

OCTOBER 22, 2020/4 CHESHVAN 5781


We continue to encourage and urge you to join us at one or more of our weekly services. These opportunities are providing the individual to be integral part of learning, sharing and praying. We noticed that individuals who are in attendance on a regular basis are more engaged and fulfilled.

We are looking forward to this Sabbath weekend, including, Friday evening services: October 23rd at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, October 24th at 10:00 a.m.-The theme for this Sabbath weekend discusses the social and ethical conditions that were about to bring the flood. As stated “Noah was a righteous man in his generation”, precise details and the measurement of the “teyva/Ark” are recorded, post flood and establishing a new brit/covenant between God and men. These are few of issues we’ll discuss. You may also want to read Torah text of portion of Noah: Geneses 6:9-11:32 and the Prophetic portion:  Isaiah 54:1-55:5

Next session on Tuesday, October 27th at 4 p.m. through zoom live – individuals that have joined in the past are eager to explore and share issues applicable to everyday life. So if you have not attended these sessions in the past, I encourage you to take advantage of the wide views expressed.

Please join us for this week services as follows:

Friday, October 23                  7:30 p.m.

Saturday, October 24    10:00 a.m

Tuesday, October 27     4:00 p.m.


For several months we have been holding Sabbath morning services at 10:00 a.m. with zoom live. We have had  success in making a minyan, but sometimes just barely.  In order to continue these Saturday morning services, I need you to RSVP of your attendance for each Saturday and if you are willing to receive a reading or an Aliyah to the Torah. RSVP should be sent to: goldpen9@gmail.com by Friday at Noon. If a Minyan is not available, services will be postponed. Next services for Sabbath morning is set for Sat., Oct. 17 at 10:00 a.m.
