RABBI MOSHE ELBAZ    הרב משה אלבז



Friends, we continue to encourage and urge you to join us at one or more of our weekly educational & religious services and in celebration of Jewish life. The Religious learning and social opportunities are providing you and our community positive experiences. Being together is our goal and as an integral part of a greater community of the Jewish people. We noticed that individuals who are in attendance on a regular basis are more engaged and fulfilled.

Today we observe Rosh Chodesh Shevat, the 5th of the Hebrew calendar. In two-weeks from today we’ll celebrate Tu B’shvat-Jewish Arbor Day with learning and a taste of fruits from Israel – prepare your Seder plate.

We are looking forward to a busy Sabbath weekend of services and other educational activities on Zoom live.

Join us for the next Torah study session on Tuesday, January 19 (Ex. 10:1) 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.
