A LITTLE JANUARY WARMTH


Jerusalem of Gold
This Sunday our community will observe Tisha B’av and turn our attention to the city of Jerusalem, mourning the destruction of its temples some two millennia ago. Here is the most famous love song to Jerusalem, my hometown, sung with my amazing colleagues Cantors Netanel Herstik and Yaakov Lemmer live in Amsterdam for the PBS Special “The New York Cantors.”

THANK YOU! BY WENDY WEISSMAN

Thank you to everyone who attended the first monthly service led by Devorah, and the Chanukkah party.

Our second service will be Friday, January 4th, also at 6 PM.

I have been playing clarinet duets with a friend of mine every week (what else should I do when the kids are gone?) and one of the duets we came across is the Leonard Cohen arrangement of Hallelujah. The arrangement also comes with a piano and vocal part. With the help of my neighbor who plays piano and Sarah Weissman, who will be home for winter break on January 4th, we will be performing it live during the next service. Please join us for services and our performance. Thank you to Jean Annau (clarinet) and Laura Detrick (piano) for sharing your musical talent.

See you all there for services and a potluck afterwards. Please bring a dish to share – not sure if it is meat or dairy. More on that to follow…

JEWISH READING GROUP STARTING IN MISSOULA

We are starting a book club! We will be reading and discussing fiction by and about Jews, and possibly some non-fiction as well. We will meet once a month on Wednesday evenings. You are welcome to attend when you have time and have read the book; no need to commit to participating every month. It’s not all that far from Great Falls to Missoula . . . so I thought I’d let you know.

The address where we will meet is:
Har Shalom
3035 S. Russell Street
Missoula

The first meeting will be Wednesday, January 23rd, and the first book will be Allegra Goodman’s Kaaterskill Falls.

On Wednesday, February 20th we will discuss Leslie Fiedler’s The Last Jew in America, which takes place in a fictional town modeled on Missoula.

If you are interested, write to us at readingjewsmissoula@gmail.com

Thank you, and happy Hanukkah!
