Letter from the Rabbi

Dear Friends, I wanted to share with you a few words of Torah. But first, I wanted to invite you to join us for special prayers to free the hostages tonight at our Shabbat service at 5:30. We will be saying traditional prayers for the freeing of hostages, reading the names of those held captive, and studying a traditional text that teaches the utmost importance of the mitzvah of working to free those held captive.
