Temple Isaiah provides an opportunity for Jews of different backgrounds and their families to come together as part of a warm, caring and enriching community to worship and renew themselves spiritually. Every congregant and guest is invited to participate in the celebration and commemoration of all of Judaism’s sacred days and life cycle events.
The High Holy Days are an opportunity to take stock with honesty of the past year and look ahead with hope to the new one. As 5783 approaches, we are acutely aware of our situation, as our lives have been turned upside down. Yet our tradition teaches that, however much we have missed the mark, intentionally or not, we can always work to adjust our course and believe in a better future.
In this spirit, and in lieu of being together, we at Temple Isaiah want to remain connected, and ensure that we all are able to celebrate and reflect at this time, thereby uniting us in spirit and in purpose. We hope you will use and enjoy this program guide to help enhance your holy days and that you have a good, sweet and healthy new year. As always, please feel free to reach out to me or any of us at your Temple Isaiah family, to ask a question, get assistance or just say hello. We are here for you and are thinking of you.
Wendy and Ben join me in wishing you and your loved ones a shana tova u-m’tuka.
Rabbi Paul Sidlofsky
