BBC story on the ISJL

The BBC has a story on the ISJL. As our members know, we are an ISJL community and the organization does an amazing job. Our synagogue doors are from one of the communities that finally had to close. It is an honor to have those doors.

Learn about Hanukah!

This Sunday, a Chabad rabbi is coming to teach the Sunday school kids about Hanukah and how to make candles. This should be a great workshop!

Rabbi Ari Lorge from Central Synagogue of New York is leading services this Friday!

Ari Lorge, assistant Rabbi at the Central Synagogue of New York, will be in town this weekend and will lead a Havdalah service at Jon and Tracy's home at 5:00 this coming Saturday, November 2.  We'll have pizza, drinks and whatever else you might care to bring.  Auburn's football game is away, but if you are worried about missing the TV version, never fear, Jon will have it on right after our service.

Rabbi Lorge comes to us as part of a cooperative outreach program between ISJL and Central Synagogue of New York.  His bio is impressive and you can read an abbreviated version here:

Rabbi Lorge is also musical (always appreciated by our congregation) and a hint of his talents can be heard here:

Ari is interested in learning about the South and our passion for football and other sports.  Try to arrange to get away and join us for a good time making Havdalah and enjoying some food, socializing and football at Jon and Tracy's.
