The High Holidays Are Behind Us

The High Holidays are behind us as well as Sukkot and Simchat Torah. Sadly, we were unable to share some of these services in person, but thanks to some creativity on the part of the Rabbi, we were able to have a courtyard Simchat Torah with a decent turnout. Hopefully next year, the calendar and this pandemic will be more cooperative to allow us to enjoy our holidays together and in person. Regardless, I want to offer a big thank you to Rabbi Rubinstein, Sharona and Zohar, who helped make our holidays happen by zoom and our outdoor service for Simchat Torah. The graphics, integration of congregants, and great planning made the holidays and their meaning even more special. Yasha koah to all of you!

Weather and Covid permitting, we hope to be able to have some in person services in the courtyard with masks as the weather continues to cool off and becomes more comfortable as fall comes to Middle Georgia. Be on the look out for some possible movie nights with brown bag suppers and other programing. You may have already gotten an email about a great speaker, Dr. Jonathan Schachter, who is coming to Macon via zoom on October 14th. He will be speaking on Antisemitism and Tribalism. Please contact me or David Frolich if you did not get the email and invitation link for this great event.

If you have any other ideas for safe, outdoor activities the congregation might be interested in, please contact me by phone or email!

Hope to see all of you in shul zoom!
