Dedication weekend is almost here! Please mark your calendar for our Sanctuary dedication on Friday, September 5. We will have two identical Dedication Shabbat Services at 6:00pm & 8:00pm with a festive celebratory oneg following each.
What better way to say goodbye to summer and usher in the New Year than with a Gala Celebration to commemorate the completion of our Sanctuary! Join the community for a festive night of drinks, dinner, dessert, and dancing on September 7 at 5:30 PM. The Not For Profit Band will be providing the sound track to this joyous evening. Take out your finest cocktail attire and join us for a celebration not to be forgotten. This is the only Gala of the 2014/15 year. Click here to register.
