Bring your own dairy lunch and discuss the week’s parasha with Rabbi Earne.
Although American elections usually turn on domestic issues, this one raises important questions for foreign policy, which is mainly the preserve of the executive branch. Another Democratic administration would most likely continue the globalist policies of the Obama administration in trade, human rights, and climate change, but with a stronger emphasis on reforming immigration policy and combating terrorism and regional instability. A Trump presidency may move us away from the status quo, including our relationships with America’s allies in Europe and Asia, treaty-based trade relations, and immigration.

Music meets the Mob in this bio-doc narrated by Steven Van Zandt. You may have never heard of Bert Berns, but you know the enduring songs he has written and produced: Twist & Shout, Cry to Me, Tell Him, Hang On Sloopy, I Want Candy and Everybody Needs Somebody to Love. Berns’ sessions made legends of The Isley Brothers, The Drifters, Ben E. King, Wilson Pickett, Van Morrison, and Neil Diamond, and his songs became chart-topping covers for the likes of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Janis Joplin. Included in the film are interviews with Ronald Isley, Ben E. King, Solomon Burke, Van Morrison and Paul McCartney.
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
