Ever wanted to learn a little bit more about what we say and do during our prayers? Wanted to know what prayer is in Judaism, or why we say the Mourner’s Kaddish at the end of the service, or why we stand during the Amidah? Do you have questions about our prayers, but never wanted to take a full class? Rabbi Gelman is here to help! Starting this week, after our normal Psukei Dzimrei at 9:45, every Shabbat service from 10-10:10 will be dedicated to going over a little piece of prayer knowledge. Learn the meaning of the prayers, the order of the service, and more! The Shacharit morning service will always start at 10:10 to make sure we end on time, so make sure you get to services by 10 AM to learn a little more about our prayers!

Community Announcements
Project Elef is an initiative that will help deserving families prepare for school without stress. Michelle Allan and Sarah Docar are facilitating the project as Tzedek Coordinators, having recently completed the first year of the Tzedek Cohort through JCCNA and Repair the World. The goal is to collect 1,000 items and $1,000.00 by the end of July.  A generous donor will match dollar-for-dollar money collected to meet the goal.   The items collected will be sorted and packed, ultimately providing numerous children in the area with a brand new backpack filled with a complete and grade appropriate supply list.  Collection bins are located in the JEA Main Lobby and Small Auditorium. 

Montag Gallery Exhibit
The Montag Gallery at the JEA is pleased to announce the opening of Joanna Silver’s solo exhibition, “Candy Coated Memories,” on Monday, June 17, 2024.
