Hi. I'm a historian in Burlington, MA, where we have a church designed by the same architect who designed your building. I'm writing an article about him. Do you have a picture of the Star of David design on the ceiling?
With the schools closed, does anyone here have any iseas how to help the LoCo students who rely on school breakfast and lunch as their primary nutrition? This closure impacts more students in/around Leesburg and surrounding neighborhoods than you might think.

Any ideas to help our neighbors? Im good at talking, not organizing
Good Morning! We are looking for a few volunteers to help as greeters on High Holidays. If you are able, please sign up for a slot.
Remember: no Coffee House Conversations tonight. We resume next week, and conclude the following!

EDIT - Got a little ahead of ourselves! No class this week. Classes resume on the 20th.

Join us next week for our second session in the Life's Holy Moments series with Rabbi Aft! Tonight's discussion will focus on marriage. No need to have attended the previous session.

Life’s Holy Moments starts with an examination of four moments of transformative experiences: bar/bat mitzvah, marriage, birth, and death. There are significant personal and spiritual benefits at each of these times from an awareness and use of Jewish prayer. These benefits include the connection to centuries of Jewish practices.
