    Dear Friends,
      Do you know about The Forgotten Jewish Valentine's Day?
      I kid you not...its coming up this Saturday, and I will speak about it our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM) 
      Not only that, but the Cantor will sing appropriate Jewish romantic music!

      It's certainly worth attending in person (in our humble estimation), but our services continue to be livestreamed as well. Either way, we hope to see you.

       And ready to read a classic Jewish historical novel this summer? Our Adas Emuno Book Club has chosen As a Driven Leaf  by Milton Steinbergthe epic tale of a leading Jewish sage who loses his faith during the Roman occupation of ancient Israel (based on a true story). Our Book Club meets on Sept. 16, so you have plenty of time to read it. 

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
        It was a pleasure to welcome back familiar faces to our sanctuary last week and we look forward to seeing you in-person (or via livestream) at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM) all summer.

         What happens when some members of a community want to separate and go their own way just as the nation faces a perilous time? Just such a situation is described in this week's portion, and the Torah offers keen insight into managing the crisis.

        Mark your calendar for Shabbat on the Palisades next week, when we will join with Temple Emeth for an outdoor service at the State Line (Alpine) Lookout (6:30 PM), with all four clergy leading the service.

       Our Zoom Adas Emuno Book Club meets on Monday (7:30 PM).  The Zoom link is in this week’s email from the Rabbi.
        You are welcome to join whether you have read the book or not. We will be discussing The Choice, by Dr. Edith Eger, a memoir written by a Holocaust survivor. 

        And mazal tov to Deb and Jay Fein on the birth of their granddaughter, Eliza Valerie!
        
    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
         Welcome back to our sanctuary!

         Wait until you hear our cantor in-person at our Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

         And I will share an emotional encounter with an American hero that I experienced during my recent trip out West that helps illuminate this week's Torah insight about true leadership.  

         A reminder on policy:  Attendees must be vaccinated and for the foreseeable future masking and social distancing by family group will be required. Regrettably our oneg remains on pause.
          We understand hesitancies remain for a variety of reasons, so our services will continue to be livestreamed as well.
          We appreciate your understanding during this time of transition and are excited to begin seeing you again!

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      As we approach Memorial Day this year it is appropriate to reflect on matters concerning our nation.
      I will do so at our Zoom Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

      Do you live in Leonia and desire to know more about the township's master plan and participate in the survey that will help determine its future? Follow this link: publicinput.com/LeoniaCMP

    Dear Friends,
      We celebrate the end our religious school year with our Zoom Shabbat Evening Family Service and Confirmation (7:30 PM).
       Mazal tov to our graduating Confirmands: Hannah Jacobowitz, Aaron Jacobowitz, Jordana Marcus and Robby Slater.
       I am always enormously proud of our teens, and their commitment to the congregation and heritage, and never more so than during this challenging year.  
       After hearing their reflections at the service, I am sure you will agree with me.

      Did you miss the phenomenal screening of "Joseph" featuring our students and the video editing magic of our cantor? 
      Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2JEVRTXuAE

       Our final school session will be held on Sunday (9:00 AM), again outdoors, weather permitting . 
        This is an appropriate time to thank students, parents, teachers, the religious education committee, our director Shira and our cantor Iris. 
         The way everyone pulled together to flourish during this pandemic year was inspirational.

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz
