Prayer helps us to focus on what is truly important to us and our community. We are adding the Prayer for the IDF to our Shabbat services, and a Prayer for Israel, the IDF, and those held captive, and including the injured in our regular prayers for healing. Join us for minyan online or in person, come to Shabbat on Friday night and Saturday – now is the time to show strength and resolve as a Jewish community, and one way we do that is by regularly gathering together at our synagogue home.
