Dear Friends,
We hope you, your family, and your friends are safe and sound. We look forward to seeing you soon at the Library Minyan! Here is this week's Library Minyan Weekly Update for September 17, 2021.
As we all know, holding High Holy Days services in the middle of a pandemic can be challenging. I want to thank everyone who led, read Torah or Haftarah, accepted an Aliyah, honor, ark opening, organized things, or attended our services. You helped make our High Holy Days meaningful and joyous.

I want to close by thanking Rabbi Kligfled, Rabbi Cantor Chorny, Rabbi Schatz, Rabbi Shapiro, and Sheryl Goldman for making it possible for us to hold outdoor services. An extra thank you to Rabbi Shapiro, who changed the youth schedule to allow us to have a three-hour Yom Kippur Morning Service outdoors. Also, thank you to our great Beth Am Maintenance Staff, who schlepped our Torahs, ark, and bemah back and forth between the roof and Corning 8.
If you have any questions, please email me at JKrautman@sbcglobal.net or reply to this email.  
Shabbat Shalom,
Jerry Krautman

Haftarah Plethora 
In the Haftarah Plethora for parshat Ha'azinu, Rick and Larry discuss the similarities and differences between Moses' song in the Torah reading and King David's song, which forms the haftarah. Rick dedicates this week's episode to Annette Berman and borrows her version of the etnachta in order to save 102 seconds in chanting this 51-verse haftarah.
Please find this week's Haftarah Plethora on our Library Minyan Facebook page: facebook.com/libraryminyan
