Dani Brand Lecture
Wednesday, October 18th at 7:00pm, at Temple Beth Am, we will welcome a special speaker. Dani Brand will enlighten us about his heroic parents, Joel and Hansi, who managed to save 1,700 Hungarian Jews during the Shoah. Joel met personally with Adolf Eichmann several times to negotiate ways in which he could help save our people. Joel and Hansi later testified at Eichmann’s trial in Israel. Just last Yom HaShoah, Joel and Hansi posthumously received the Jewish Rescuer’s Citation from the B’nai B’rith World Center.
Dani has been researching his parents’ history for the past 15 years. Dani, a holocaust survivor himself, uses his extensive analytical skills to understand the events in the perspective of those times, as well as to explore the reasons that led to concealing these events in the years that followed. His research has resulted in a recently published book.
The New Siddur is here!
The new Lev Shalem siddurim are proudly sitting on top of the cabinet in the front of the chapel each Shabbat morning. Please pick one up, use it and get used to it as we will complete our transition to the new siddur on Shabbat Parashat Lech Lecha, October 28, 2017. Limited numbers of the Siddur Sim Shalom (the blue siddur) will continue to be available for those of us who find change a bit challenging.
Holidays, Holidays, and More Holidays
Library Minyan will conduct all High Holiday services in the chapel as usual. A big thank you to the High Holiday committee (Mayer Brenner, Jennifer Low, Paul Miller, Fran Grossman, Bob Braun and Alisa Shudofsky) for working so hard to ensure a meaningful experience for us.
Sukkot and Simchat Torah services will be joint services. Morning services for the first two days of Sukkot will be held in the ballroom. Simchat Torah and Shemini Atzeret morning services will be held in the Dorff-Nelson chapel. There will also be a hashkama minyan on Simchat Torah morning.
