September 20, 2023 High Holy Day Message

L’Shanah Tovah Family & Friends,

As Temple leadership recently shared, we, along with a team from Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple (Fairmount Temple/ACFT), have been exploring potential opportunities to collaborate.

This past weekend, each Temple held celebratory and meaningful Rosh Hashanah services. Both our own Rabbi Klein and Fairmount Temple’s Rabbi Nosanchuk spoke about the opportunities on the horizon for our congregations. Click on the links below to view their sermons.



Having identified several areas of alignment, we are now expanding our evaluation process. This starts with getting feedback from you, our congregation. We want to share information with you directly about what the joint task force has accomplished, gather your input, answer your questions, and share what still needs to be done to determine our best path forward.

We hope you will join us at an upcoming informational meeting. Please click here to RSVP to one or more of the meetings below. If none of the dates below work for you or you would prefer a conversation, please let me know and I will contact you.
