- Last Shabbat morning's Shabbat-in-the Round has drawn rave reviews - and it also drew nearly 50 people! It filled a need that we have been wanting to fill for a long time. There's lots more to say about it but I will leave that for next week. Meanwhile, we've scheduled a number of other "Shabbats-in-the-Round" for the coming months. Look for them!

- Join us for our Europe group's report on our recent trip this Tuesday at 7:30. Given the hate-filled graffiti discovered at the AITE this week, along with events in Charlottesville and elsewhere (including surging rates of anti-Semitic incidents in the US this year), what we learned now has even more relevance. The incident at AITE was troubling on a number of levels. Local authorities and the ADL are "on it," and we stand ready to help out if needed. I am a co-signatory to the Interfaith Council's Letter to the Editor on the topic, also released by the UJF:
