The festivals of Sukkot, Passover, and Shavuot are called shalosh regalim, usually translated as the “Three Pilgrimage Festivals.” But literally, it just means, the three walking times. In ancient days, our people would walk to Jerusalem in pilgrimages to make sacrifices on these festivals. We don’t do that anymore, but we can learn from them by taking time to walk and think on these days. So, we are having walking days on each of these festivals, a time for a contemplative walk and study. The walk will be led by Rabbi Alpert. For more info contact Rabbi Alpert

Gentlemen, the High Holydays and Sukkot are over- that means it's time for MNF football. Please come by (being late is okay) and enjoy a night out with some good food, spirits & friends. The game is between the Texans and Broncos and starts at 8:30pm, but let's get there a little early to schmooze...around 7:30pm. We usually stay until half time, but you can leave anytime. Please RSVP to Stewart by 7/31.
