Feb 5 Shabbat
Following our dinner of hoagies/subs/sides, welcome the Shabbat with us and stay for our insightful program, The Perspective of Our Youth. What are young people thinking about these days? What issues get them excited, enraged, hopeful? A panel of congregation members including teens and millennials will share their thoughts.
Feb 21 Shabbat Evaluation
Familiar liturgy and rituals can be comforting but they also need to be updated from time to time to keep up with societal changes and changes within congregations.
The newly formed Liturgy Committee, led by Dan Wyman, has begun the vital project of changing/revising/updating our Shabbat services. Please share your thoughts and join in the discussion whether you attend regularly, sporadically, or not at all. Be part of this vital project.
A second session will be held at our March 4 Shabbat service.
