A MONTANA STATE CAPITOL HANUKKAH

FROM THE HELENA INDEPENDENT RECORD

FREE ONLINE BIBLICAL ARCHAEOLOGY COURSE FROM BAR ILAN UNIVERSITY

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.

The address for the Bethel is 1009 18th Avenue Southwest. click here for map and directions.

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…

Wendy
