Hello and Good Afternoon,

I have been receiving calls regarding donations that congregants would like to make in behalf of Hurricane Harvey that has devastated these poor peoples lives in Texas . I am sure you know as well as I do what a time we had in Sandy , me coming from Long Beach and losing it all. But in particular regarding the South Baldwin Jewish Center I was told that, volunteered with the help of Stacey Eager- Leavitt , came in and ripped out walls and were amazing at what they did.

So, if you would like to make a donation and haven't already. Here is the website. There will be a prompt setting to donate for the cause or if you would like to come into the office I will be here to help you out. I know that all of us do our best in this life to help to whatever and whomever we can, but as the Jewish New Year comes upon us it is way important that we are in good standing with the Almighty.

She' Elohim Yivrach otcha v' otach

(G-d Bless)

Conservative Movement Statement on Violent Demonstrations in
Charlottesville, VA

Posted on:
Sunday August 13, 2017


In the aftermath of violent demonstrations by white supremacists and
their sympathizers in Charlottesville, Virginia, resulting in 3 deaths
and many injuries, the Rabbinical Assembly and the United Synagogue of
Conservative Judaism issued the following statement:

The Rabbinical Assembly and United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism are
shocked and horrified by the violent demonstrations of white
supremacists, neo-Nazis and their sympathizers in Charlottesville,
Virginia this past Saturday which resulted directly in the deaths of one
civilian and two state police officers and in many other serious
injuries. We applaud the swift and effective actions of Mayor Mike
Signer of Charlottesville and Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, as well
as their appropriate condemnations of the bigotry, antisemitism and
hatred that inspired the rally itself. Many leaders have taken the
indispensable step of naming the dangerous philosophies and movements
that united these demonstrators. These events have been rightly labeled
as incidents of domestic terror by both Democrats and Republicans.

We call upon United States officials including President Donald Trump
and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to condemn neo-Nazi, white
supremacist and alt-right movements by name. The repeated failure to do
so by top U.S. officials has fueled their growth and poses an imminent
threat to all Americans as Saturday's violent rallies showed. History
has demonstrated that where a country's leaders fail to condemn these
philosophies, violence and hatred can quickly and exponentially consume
the fabric of civil society. Our leaders must act now. Let us continue
to pray for and to work for the day when all shall "sit under his/her
vine and fig tree and none shall make them afraid."

Rabbi Philip Scheim, President, The Rabbinical Assembly
Rabbi Julie Schonfeld, CEO, The Rabbinical Assembly
Margo Gold, President, USCJ
Rabbi Steven Wernick, CEO, USCJ

Shabbat Shalom

It is considered a great mitzvah and responsibility to honor the Sabbath by lighting candles 18 minutes before sunset on Friday evening.

This unique commandment, entrusted to the Jewish woman, is rich with meaning and purpose.
