Our New Torah Dedication Event - April 5, 2019

We had a wonderful TORAH DEDICATION on Friday April 5th! Community Shabbat is a special event on its own and on that special Friday we had a momentous reason to celebrate!

We had a joyous Kabbalat Shabbat service followed by a procession of singing and dancing to welcome our new Sefer Torah into our sanctuary!

Judy Shemirani, Malka Shemirani, and Shuly Rokach supplied a wonderful dinner that followed the installation and service.

We thank them all for their generosity.
