AITZ CHAIM BEGINS LAY SERVICES ON THE FIRST FRIDAY OF EACH MONTH
At the most recent Aitz Chaim board meeting on October 28, 2018, the suggestion was made that it might be nice to hold regular monthly lay services at The Bethel, to give us a chance to get together and celebrate Shabbat, and perhaps have a meal. Devorah Werner has offered to lead these lay services. The first one will be held on Friday, December 7, 29 Kislev, and we will have our community Chanukah celebration afterwards. So we will meet downtown to light the Diane Kaplan Memorial Chanukkiah at 5:30 P.M. and then meet at The Bethel by 6:00 P.m. We thank Devorah Werner for her willingness to step up and lead these services. We hope that having consistent services every month will bring us closer together as a Jewish community and help us to grow bigger, better, and stronger.
