Please meet in our church hall at 9:30. Transportation and late breakfast will be provided.

What to wear: Do your best to wear a button down shirt, or a shirt with a collar. Pants as apposed to jeans if you have them. A tie is not required, but is a nice touch. Ladies, I trust your judgement. :) .

You all worked hard learning about Judaism. Attending a Jewish Service will enhance what you've learned. Shabbat in Shul is Sabbath in the synagogue. November 22nd is the first day of the Jewish calendar year so this will be a special experience. I am happy to say that Mr. Berkowitz will accompany us.
