         And mark your calendar now:

    Dear Friends,
      On the last Shabbat of the Jewish year let's end on a positive note!
      We'll discuss an article that argues that, all in all, our world is better than it was before, at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

        We have resumed in-person Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM). This year we are probing the weekly Torah portion with the help of a wonderful new book, The JPS Jewish Heritage Torah Commentary.

         Ready to read the next novel for the Adas Emuno Book Club (meets Nov.14)? The History of Love by Nicole Krauss is set in modern NYC and pre-war Poland, when a 14 year old girl sets out to discover the author of a book her mother is translating.

       Religious school is on break on the eve of the holiday on Sunday. You are welcome to come by from 10-12 to pick up a holiday prayer book for those who will be joining us via livestream. 

       Of course, we hope to see you in-person at any or all of our Rosh HaShanah services: Evening (8:00 PM),  Morning (10:00 AM),  Afternoon- Children's (2:00 PM) and Tashlich (3:30 PM).

    Shabbat shalom and Shanah tovah,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      Across the river Yeshiva University just appealed a ruling to the Supreme Court. It's an intriguing case about religious freedom, which I'll discuss at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

      We have resumed in-person Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM). This year we are probing the weekly Torah portion with the help of a wonderful new book, The JPS Jewish Heritage Torah Commentary, and you are welcome any time.

       Religious school has also resumed, and this week Confirmation Class convenes, examining some of the most prominent debates in our society today through a Jewish lens.

      Leonia's annual International Day of Peace takes place this Sunday on the lawn of the Methodist Church (4:30-6:00 PM), and I am honored to participate as I do every year.

      An important new documentary airs this Sunday on PBS (8:00 PM)- Ken Burns' The U.S. and the Holocaust. 

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
       With the unofficial end of summer, it's back to school and much more:
       1. Friday- we welcome our new student cantor Joe Flaxman! 
       2. Saturday- the return of in-person Torah study! 
       3. Sunday- the start of a new religious school year! 
       
         At our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM) I will note a sad 50th anniversary that should not be forgotten- the tragic massacre of eleven Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics.

        Everyone is welcome each week or any week to our Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM). This year we will probe the weekly Torah portion with the help of a wonderful new book, The JPS Jewish Heritage Torah Commentary.

       
    We kick off the new school year by gathering in the sanctuary for a Religious School Service (9:00 AM), as we do each week, and parents are always welcome to join us.

         Join us for a timely discussion of Phillip Roth’s novel Nemesis at our Adas Emuno Book Club (7:30 PM) on Monday evening (7:30 PM). 

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      This week's Torah portion is the clarion call to justice in society, and also dramatically expresses the principle that no one is above the law.
       We'll discuss this in light of what is happening in our country right now, at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

       Although this Labor Day weekend is a quiet unofficial end of summer at the Temple, please note that next week begins with a bang:
       1. Friday the 9th- we welcome our new student cantor Joe Flaxman!
        2. Saturday the 10th- the return of in-person Torah study!
        3. Sunday the 11th- the start of a new religious school year!
        4. Monday the 12th- Adas Emuno Book Club!

    Shabbat shalom,

    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      Can someone please explain to me what is going on in Israel politically?
       Israel is now facing its 5th election in 3 years!
       You are welcome to hold forth at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).
       I might add a few comments as well :)

         For some late summer reading, try our Adas Emuno Book Club pick, Nemesis, by Phillip Roth. Set in Newark in the late '40s during an outbreak of polio, it is eerily relevant to our pandemic present. The Book Club meets to discuss it on Sept. 12.

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      The week before last, while in Copenhagen, I had the opportunity to meet with the chief rabbi of Denmark.
      It was a fascinating conversation about his family and community, including details about the rescue of the Jews of Denmark during the Holocaust which I did not know
      I'll share this conversation at Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

       Thanks again to everyone who made our Gathering in the Garden such a big success- it was so good to see so many people in person!

    Dear Friends,
      At her final service as our student cantor Iris Karlin will offer some personal reflections on her unique two year experience with us (pandemic challenges notwithstanding!) at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).
      
      As I mentioned at our wonderful tribute service to Iris in July, this is not a final good-bye, as Iris and her family will continue to be part of our congregation, and we certainly look forward to further special musical occasions with her.  

       On Sunday we hope you will drop by at our Annual Gathering in the Garden and Open House (4-6PM). So many of us have not seen each other on a regular basis, or even at all...so even if it is for a quick hello and some refreshments, we'll be glad to see you!

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends.
      What exactly is Tisha B'Av, the mournful Jewish day of remembrance that commences this evening?

      The cantor will explore this through words and music at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

      Please note that next week, at the cantor's final Shabbat service with us, Iris will offer some reflections on her two years with us. 

       And we hope to see everyone at our annual Gathering in the Garden next Sunday the 14th (4:00-6:00 PM).

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz
