Kehillat Beth Israel is pleased to announce that Rabbi Ilana Foss will be joining our kehilla during the upcoming High Holy Days to serve as our Chapel Service Rabbinic and Spiritual Leader.
For the past four years Rabbi Foss served as solo rabbi at Temple Beth Emunah in Brockton, Mass. Rabbi Foss was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York in 2011 where she was awarded the Lillian M. Lowenfeld Prize in Practical Theology.
Rabbi Foss shared: “I am thrilled to be joining Kehillat Beth Israel for the High Holy Days. We have so much to learn and share together as we enter the newness of 5777 as a community.”
Welcome Rabbi Foss!
JUST COMMENTARY: A SHABBAT MORNING STUDY SESSION – 10:30 A.M. -11:30 A.M.
Once a month, join us to look more deeply into the texts that anchor our Shabbat service – the Siddur and the Torah portion. This session is just learning, there will be no prayer service.
ON ONE FOOT: A SHORT SHABBAT SERVICE FEATURING JUST THE GREATEST HITS –10:30 A.M. – 11:30 A.M.
Once a month, this clergy-led parallel service will offer a condensed version of the Shabbat morning tefillot, including a brief discussion of the weekly Torah portion and a Shabbos Vort (short sermonette).
Our High Holy Day Guide is now available and includes a list of service times for all three of our services. If you would like to download the information onto your computer or mobile device, please click below on the PDF file.
The High Holy Days are the most important days of the year. They remind us that we must take stock of ourselves as individuals and as a kehillah and commit ourselves to acts of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world).
WHO will help out over the HIGH HOLY DAYS?
We need ushers and security monitors at the doors. Should YOU or someone you know be able to help out, please contact Susan at the Shul office as soon as possible.
Kehillat Beth Israel is more than just a place to pray. Synagogue members enjoy an array of services and support when they become part of our community. We offer a welcome environment to all, and are creating new programs and approaches to meet the needs of people’s lives at all ages and stages.
