Daveners Needed

Library Minyan High Holy Day Survey
Earlier today you got an email asking you to fill out a High Holy Days survey.  It will only take you a minute. Please take the survey by this Sunday, August 30th. Here is the link: libraryminyan.wufoo.com/forms/zubzz2r02xg2pr/
Hey What’s Cooking?
Thank you so much for everyone who contributed to the Library Minyan High Holiday Family Cookbook. We have extended the deadline to Sunday, August 30th, if any of you out there would still like to contribute. We will now be putting the cookbook together and be sending this out in September. Following the creation of the cookbook, we will be hosting a Zoom “Ask the Cook,” on Tuesday, September 15th, at 7:30 pm. During the zoom call, you can ask the originators for any tips making the dish and maybe more about their story! 
The Mishnah Study Group will be gathering to learn on August 29 with Zwi Reznik.
Haftarah Plethora 
This week Rick and Larry invite Rabbi Daniel Chorny to offer his insights into some interesting words and phrases in the second shortest haftarah of the year, including identifying a hapax legomenon. Larry wonders why so many negative words and Rick picks Gersha'im as his trope of the week. Enjoy.
Shabbat Schedule
There are no separate online Library Minyan Services for Shabbat.
Please consult the Temple Beth Am Shabbat Email and website for information on shul events.
Library Minyan at Home Shabbat and Shavuot Davening Schedule
Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has made an important point about the need to daven at the same time as the community, even if one is davening alone. We include a Shabbat Davening Schedule that you can follow at home.
