Jewish tradition is to blow shofar throughout the month of Elul, awakening our souls in preparation for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Temple’s ba’alei tekiah have been roaming our beautiful city to highlight some of its notable places.

High Holy Days SHIM Food Drive

Our High Holy Days tradition of giving continues and is more important now than ever before!

Every year, we collect hundreds of pounds of food and supplies between Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot to support our food-insecure neighbors.  Help us stock SHIM’s food pantry again this year with donations of non-perishable groceries, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products and diapers. Watch your email for details to come on drop-off and collection times.  Monetary donations to SHIM are also appreciated at www.shimcares.org/donate

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped to staple, label, sort, assemble, distribute and deliver the High Holy Day care packages!
