This Week at Adas Emuno—Another Birth Announcement!

Dear Friends,
  Eighty-five years ago today the Holocaust in Europe began in earnest with Kristallnacht, the "Night of Broken Glass", that saw hundreds of synagogues and Jewish businesses in Germany destroyed, scores of Jews killed, and tens of thousands deported. 

  It is sadly ironic that we have to continue our discussion of resurgent anti-Semitism on this tragic anniversary. We will do so at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM). 

  My latest blogs on the Israel-Hamas War can be found here: .
  Each week we are now reading the names of 18 Israeli hostages, who are ever on our minds.

  Having completed the Preface, we read and discuss the Introduction to Open Judaism at our Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM). 

   Another period of Jewish suffering - the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisition- is the subject of our Adas Emuno Book Club on Monday (7:30 PM- via Zoom), when we discuss the difficult but bestselling novel (based on a true story and discovered manuscript) The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon.

   This weekend we also mark Veteran's Day, and pause to express gratitude to those who have served our country. Did you know that our oldest member, Kurt Roberg (99 years old) witnessed Kristallnacht and then fought for this country in WWII? And that another member, Maren Friedman, was born in Germany, on Kristallnacht (Happy birthday, Maren).

    Congratulations to Temple member Bill Ziegler on being elected mayor of Leonia.
     The same to Temple member Kimberly Melman on her reelection to the Leonia Board of Education.

     And finally, also in the good news department, we celebrate another new birth this week- of our granddaughter Ava Liana Schwartz.
     Ava was so eager to come into the world that she was born at home, delivered by our son Nadav!

Shabbat shalom,
Rabbi Schwartz
