No longer entombed with the mummies, the ancient art of encaustic (hot wax) resonates in contemporary culture. The multi-dimensional surface, luminous color, and ethereal image layering unique to this once obsolete medium is now recognized both for it’s exquisite beauty and incredible versatility.
I am very proud that our Shabbat morning Lay Led Service will be celebrating its 25th anniversary on October 29, 2016.
I would like to invite the whole Congregation to join in celebrating this wonderful accomplishment during the weekend of October 28 & 29. There will be an array of events and programs, more details to follow shortly.
We should all be very proud of our lay led service, which is lively and spirited and brings together people who love Shabbat and the community and warmth of our chapel.
I hope you will all join me in helping to celebrate this milestone.
Rabbi Michael Berk
