Notes From the Hazzan

​Dear Friends,

We are now in the process of counting the omer between Pesah and Shavuot.  This daily process reminds us how we should focus ourselves on keeping our Judaism in the forefront of our lives and how yearly we prepare ourselves to again receive the law, as did our ancestors, on the celebration of Shavuot, 7 weeks from Pesah.  You will hear us count the omer weekly during Shabbat services and we hope this will be a great reminder to focus your attention on how important you Judaism and Beth Shalom are to you in your life. 

On May 13, we will uniquely celebrate Shabbat in the Fellowship Hall at First friends as another group will be using the Meeting House that night.  ALL will be welcome to come in person to this service which will begin 1 hour earlier at 6:30 pm and followed by an Italian dairy pasta Shabbat dinner at no charge to all who wish to attend.  You will need to let our office know if you plan to attend this wonderful event so we can plan accordingly for dinner.  The last time we did this before COVID, we had a very nice sized crowd, and we hope you will want to attend again with us for this very special Shabbat celebration.
