My wife Linda and I would like to know if we would be able to join your congregation for Rosh Hashanah. I would rather drive to Great Falls than Calgary. Will you be holding services on two days or just the first day?

Of course you would be very welcome at Aitz Chaim for the High Holy Days.
Our services will be for the first day only. We will hold erev Rosh Hashanah, Rosh Hashanah and Tashlich services.

Aaron and members of the Great Falls Hebrew Association,
Linda and I would like to express our most sincere gratitude to all of you for welcoming us to your congregation to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. The warmth and friendliness was more than we expected, and hope that we may in the future, even though it may be unlikely, be able to reciprocate. We look forward to being able to join you again, perhaps on a weekend when we are down there , and to get to know each of you better. The time was too short to chat with all of you, but most gratifying.
May you all enjoy a good healthy and prosperous New Year, and a good fast on Yom Kippur.
L’Shanah Tovah to all….
Garry and Linda Kohn
