Welcome to the
South Baldwin Jewish Center Website

This Friday, September 30th is the final announced day for submitting your requests to participate in this year's Memorial Book. If you cannot make it to the office please call so you do not miss this opportunity. In order to have it prepared and printed by Yom Kippur, we must adhere to this deadline.

We have been informed of the death of Jack Krauss, beloved husband of Beatrice Krauss, Baldwin Jewish Center members of long standing.

For those members who have difficulties walking,  we will issue parking permits for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. 
They are available at the office and should be picked up this week by Friday, September 30th.

Message From Sisterhood

Because we need to finalize our list of congregants sending New Year Greetings to members of our congregation, if you have not yet submitted your information, we respectfully request that you submit your name today or tomorrow if you would like to be included in the listing. We are asking for a donation of $18.00.

In addition, we remind you that our Rosh Chodesh Study Group will be meeting this Sunday morning, September 25th, after the minyan. As you know, we have invited a guest speaker, Margie Cella, a rabbinical student at JTS. Margie will address the topic: Spiritual Preparation for the High Holy Days. A light breakfast will be available. So that we can prepare properly, we ask that you call Betty, 223-2385, to confirm your attendance. We certainly want to have enough fresh bagels and hot coffee. Please try to attend the minyan at 9:30. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support of Sisterhood.

We regret to announce the death of Jacob Sosne, beloved brother of our member Jean Silvers.

The New Year is Coming

We have been privileged to receive a generous donation from one of our fellow congregants.
It was ear-marked for our Rosh Hashannah greetings to appear in both the Jewish Week as
well as the Baldwin Herald.

You may recall that we were absent from the pages of synagogue greetings for a few years.

The first year we came back "in print", the response from congregants was joyful and positive.
More than a few stopped at the local newspaper stand to buy a copy of each paper and
cut out our High Holiday greetings. It felt good to "be back" on that page alongside our sister synagogues.
There was an outpouring of donations , and notes; from congregants. We subsequently added Pesach
greetings in both publications.

If you are inclined to participate, just write NEWSPAPER GREETINGS on the memo line and drop off or mail in your support to the office. Accompanying notes are most welcome.

Shana tova to everyone,
Malka Mittelmann
Co President
