It's time for new beginnings! We have a new rabbi, a new shofar contest, and a new cook preparing a kosher brisket for Rosh Hashanah!


You don't have to be Jewish to enter our new shofar blowing contest! The member of the congregation who comes in first will blow the shofar for Rosh Hashanah in the synagogue.  But the overall winner of the contest will win a $25 gift certificate to Brennan's Big Chill for the best ice cream in town!
