A Note From Rabbi Weinberg

 

To the Members of Young Israel:

It is hard to believe that a whole year has gone by and that the Yamim Noraim are once again upon us. This has been a wonderful year for me and Elana here in West Hartford! There have been lots of ups and downs, many sad occasions but, thankfully, also many smachot. We have watched the shul grow and expand both in its mem- bership, in people’s participation, and in programming which is inspiring to see. All in all we have much to be

thankful for. I hope that in the coming year I can continue to foster the relationships that I have with you. Our shul is starting an exciting year of new opportunities and, as always, I invite your continued involvement and your support. We will be kicking off the educational program for the year with a number of programs and classes described below in preparation for the High Holidays.

Our weekly Gemara class and the Shabbat afternoon class will be continuing and we will be holding some new se-

ries’ on various topics. You will hear shortly about all of these

PRE-YAMIM NORAIM SHIUR

“Climbing the Mountain of G-d:

Psalm 24 and Themes of Rosh Hashanna”

In this class we will take a look at Psalm 24 and ask why it is recited on the nights of Rosh Hashanna.

By understanding more about the origins, poetry, and overall beauty of the chapter of Tehillim we will not only be more prepared to say it, but also be more inspired as we prepare for this important time of the year.

This shiur will be offered TWICE:

Shabbat, Sept. 17th, 5:30pm At Young Israel of West Hartford

&

Wednesday, Sept. 21st, 8:00pm At the Weinberg’s - 85 Iroquois Rd

SHABBAT SHUVA DRASHA

“The Trial of Josef K. & Yona’s Debate with G-d”

This class will be dedicated to understanding some essential questions about the book of Jonah and why we read it on the afternoon of Yom Kippur.

By answering these questions we will reveal a fundamental truth about the nature of Divine Judgment and the period of Yamim Noraim.

Join us as we carry on the time-honored tradition of holding a special thought provoking study session on Shabbat afternoon between Rosh Hashanna and Yom Kippur.

What a perfect way to show our seriousness for torah and for our desire to understand the process of teshuva in the days when Hashem is most compassionate.

Shabbat, October 1st, 4:45pm

At Young Israel of West Hartford
