Our Feb. 25 service was held in person, including a dinner beforehand. After services, there was an Oneg Shabbat. Oneg Shabbats are a time for us to gather and celebrate. Our sponsors were Sherry and Bill Kaplan, celebrating Bill’s “21st” birthday (Bill was born on Feb. 29). Melanie and Nate Einbund celebrated their permanent move to SaddleBrooke! It was wonderful for us to be together and enjoy seeing each other.

Rabbi Harari conducted a class, Judaism Is More Than a Religion. There was lots of information, with more questions than answers. The interest of the participants and the energetic and stimulating dialogue were contagious. Rabbi Harari led us through conversation to understand and formulate ideas of how Judaism is more than a religion. Is there a magic answer? No. All agreed that Jewish life includes religious practices, customs, rituals, traditions, ethics, food, holidays, and adaptation to the culture of the country and surroundings in which we live.

Shabbat services on March 25 were in person with Rabbi Harari officiating, with cantorial soloist Sarah Boltt accompanied by David Mancini-Conway.
