Shabbat Shalom from Rabbi Ain-Come Learn from Dr. Sam Klagsbrun

Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach! We are in the midst of celebrating Sukkot, the holiday of our joy. Already this week so many people have celebrated the holiday-from the congregational dinner on Sunday night, to kiddush after services on Monday and Tuesday, to a wonderful kick off event for the Men’s Club of “Whiskey and Wisdom with Rabbi Dave Levy,” to the visits by our KNS and JRS students, and last night’s annual Young Professionals “Pizza in the Hut” our sukkah has welcomed several hundred people. We will continue tonight with our Family Shabbat dinner and tomorrow’s kiddush and then Hoshanah Rabbah services on Sunday at 9:15 am and Tot Sukkot at 10 am on Sunday. If you haven’t had a chance to come to the sukkah yet, we encourage you to do so.
Shabbat evening services are at 6:15 pm and Saturday morning services are at 9:15 am. Candle lighting is at 6:24 pm.

We will welcome tomorrow during services, Dr. Sam Klagsbrun to speak about Mental

Illness: How to Manage Anxiety and Depression. We are doing this during services tomorrow since part of the holiday of Sukkot forces us to confront fragility in our lives and it is important to raise up these issues so that all feel comfortable addressing them.
