    Dear Friends,
      Today is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Commemoration Day.
     
      At our Livestream Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM), Student Cantor Karlin, accompanied by Beth Robin, will bring us moving music related to this day, and to the great legacy of German Jewish composing.

      I'll reflect on recent efforts to educate the new generation about the past (which I will put into practice at Confirmation Class on Sunday).

       At our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study  (10:00 AM) we will look at a quality that, according to the Torah and Rashi commentary, is necessary in our leaders, but in short supply today: humility.

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
       As we conclude our week long observance of Pesach I'll share some final thought on the holiday at our Zoom Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

        We have some catching-up to do in the Book of Leviticus at our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 PM).

        Keep in mind that our next two Shabbat services, for Yom HaShoah and Yom Ha'Atzmaut, will feature special music appropriate for Holocaust Commemoration Day and Israel Independence Day.

    Shabbat shalom, 
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,

    The next meeting of the Adas Emuno Book Club will be take place on Monday, May 10 (7:30 PM).

    We will be reading the acclaimed novel, Up from Orchard Street by Eleanor Widmer.

    Copies of the book are available through the BCCLS.

    This novel centers around an immigrant family living on the Lower East Side in the 1930s. The author, who was born in 1924, grew up there. So many of us have NY roots and all of us can relate to the immigrant experience. 

    Happy reading,
    Michael Fishbein on behalf of the Book Club

    Dear Friends,
      We're sending this message early in the week rather so you can enjoy the special Pesach Video that Cantor Karlin and I prepared for you.
      We've recorded some of our favorite readings and songs that you might want to share at your own seder, or simply enjoy for their own sake.
       You can find the video on our YouTube channel, and also find it with a PDF copy of the readings and lyrics at this website:https://adasemuno.org/Pesach/  

       At our Zoom Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM) we'll feature additional lively music and some fun preparation for Pesach.
        Both Torah Study and Religious School are on break this weekend. 

        Whether you are celebrating Pesach again this year virtually (like my family), or will be able to gather in-person, we wish you a healthy and happy holiday.

    Shabbat shalom and Hag Pesach Sameach,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
       Join us for our Livestream Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM), with Peter Hays joining our cantor for some special music, as I offer a few reflections as we conclude our annual reading of the book of Exodus.

       At our Livestream Shabbat Morning Service (10:00 AM) we celebrate the bar mitzvah of Leo Avidon. Mazal tov to Leo and his family!

       Spring officially begins on this Shabbat and Pesach is just a week away, coming quite "early" this year.
       Be on the look-out for a special "mini-seder" video by the Cantor and me for use at your own seder.

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

Stay on the zoom for a virtual oneg, when we can shmooze and sample treats from our Shabbat Box. Just swing by the Temple and pick it up on the school porch, or let us know, and we can deliver!

       Don't forget to move your clocks ahead on Sat. night, as daylight savings time begins, which means spring is almost here. 

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz

    Dear Friends,
      A fascinating article on how what is happening in Israel can help us understand what is happening in America made me sit up and notice.
      I'll explain, at our Zoom Shabbat Evening Service (7:30 PM).

        I'll admit that our weekly Torah portion has some confounding laws about slavery and justice, but they open up timely and provocative questions about reparations and affirmative action   
        I'll elaborate, at our Zoom Shabbat Morning Torah Study (10:00 AM). 

       School is on break this President's Day Weekend. 
       Mark you calendar for our Livestream Purim Service, Thursday the 25th (7:00 PM)- early this year!

    Shabbat shalom,
    Rabbi Schwartz
