Penny’s Message

Dear friends,

We hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving holiday. Services return to our regular schedule of Fridays 7:30pm

On the eve of Shabbat, we send you our warm wishes and prayers, and extend prayers for the speedy recovery of Sydney Morris, Lamar Golivesky, Hank Rupright, Barry and Haley Hyatt, Donna Delaney, as well as others.

It has been almost two months since war broke out between Israel and Hamas and it has caused great Rabbi & Pennysuffering. In the past days exchanges of captured Israelis for release of convicted Hamas militants has been taking place during a pause of the battle hoping that it may lead to all hostages coming home. The government of Israel and the IDF promised to continue fighting till Hamas is removed from governing Gaza.

Next Friday, we’ll be celebrating Chanukah. It is this holiday that celebrates the spirit of bringing light to the darkness, and the dedication of unity and renewal. During these past days of despair, the Macabbees of Chanukah and the Israeli soldiers give hope and resolve of Am Israel Chai.

There will be another fun and fabulous “braiding bunch” get together soon. Check with Anita Lovett as to which Sunday.

Penny and I were in Ashkelon between our visit to Sderot and meeting with a unit of soldiers. We took this picture as we were waiting for the order of hamburgers we would be bringing to the soldiers. We wish everyone a peaceful Shabbat.

IN MEMORIAM: Bronze Memorial plaque forms available include English & Hebrew names and are available to order locally. Please send a $500.00 donation to be included with the order.

TREE OF LIFE: To honor family/friends with a Tree of Life Leaf that can be engraved locally – Please send your order to Rabbi with a $150.00 donation per leaf. Chanah Wilson is a member of the board and handles the Tree of Life & other dedications.

If you have knowledge of a member/friend who is ill, or in the hospital, the rabbi would like to know and make it known to our congregation for e-mail communications. In addition, we’ll announce the sad news of the passing of members/friends in Valdosta and in the neighboring communities.
