The Chai Times // Rosh Hashana is in 3 weeks

Aug 25, 2023 9:46 pm


YES the High Holidays are coming,

YES we will have Rosh dinner and services at YJP,

YES we will have Yom Kippur services and breakfast,

YES we will have a Sukkah and Sukkot parties and Simchat Torah!!

What is the purpose of the High Holidays?
To infuse High Energy Judaism into your life
or to infuse High Energy into your Judaism.

A few important notes:

  • Most of the High Holidays are on Shabbos (Saturday) and Sunday. This means the only day you need to take off work would be Monday, September 25 for Yom Kippur day.
  • ACL Weekend 1 is the weekend of Shmini Atzeret and Simchat Torah - WHO CARES? the real party will be at Chabad, everyone knows that.
  • I will send this in a separate email as well but if you want a Lulav and Etrog let me know. They are usually between $80-90.

Wishing you an uplifting Shabbat,

Rabbi Mendy & Mussy

p.s. As always, we would love to chat with you over coffee or drinks, about Judaism, or just life - reply to this email.
