Deerfield plans events for Martin Luther King day of service
Cantor Ross WolmanNovember 19, 2014 – 26 Cheshvan 5775
I have spent an incredible 3 ½ years at BJBE and each day has been a gift. On Monday, it was with mixed feelings that I informed our presidents and senior staff of my decision to exercise an option in my contract to enter ACC placement in search of another position, beginning July 1, 2015. Until that time I will continue to serve this community with a full heart.

We feel an overwhelming sense of heaviness. I call upon our faith that demands that we pursue peace, the same prayers on the lips of the rabbis, who, moments before the attack were uttering the final words of the prayers of theAmidah:“God who makes peace in the high heavens, bring peace to us on earth.”
A synagogue! During prayers! This is not a war between states that have political conflicts. This a war waged by extreme religious ideologies that know no borders, no political solutions, no sense of reason, no humanity. Savage.
