NEW SHABBAT SCHOOL DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
Please note that the children are to be dismissed at 11:15am to go to their Shabbat School classes unless Torah Talk occurs (which is generally the first Shabbat of each month). Parents need to remain aware of the time as no announcement will be made. Parents need not accompany their children to the back, but may if they feel so inclined. A teacher will be at the back door of the sanctuary to oversee the children proceeding to their classes.

TISHA B’AV - Sunday, August 11th
Tisha B'Av is the saddest day in the Jewish year. It is a day on which we commemorate the destruction of both Temples, as well as the judgement to wander the desert for 40 years, the expulsion from Spain, and the beginning of WWI, which led to WWII and the Holocaust. It is also the day in which the Talmud says the Messiah will be born. Whether that is true or not, we do know that God is close to the brokenhearted, that the light pierces the darkness and the darkness is unable to overcome it. That light is Yeshua! Let us fast and pray that God would reveal the resurrected temple of Yeshua to the Jewish community so to turn the mourning into dancing.
YAHRZEIT: If you would like to have the name(s) of your family members listed, please send the name of your loved one and the anniversary of their death to the office.
