A Loose Connection?   Due to some summer thunderstorms, the internet service was down in the area where I live. Even though it was restored after a day and a half, the internet connection was often bad for many days following. It was often slow or cutting in and out. It was still a loose connection.

HIGH HOLIDAY DOOR GREETINGS Since our synagogue doors are still closed to us as a congregation and to be safe, our doors at home are closed to each other, we can’t be together to celebrate as we are used to doing.  So we thought decorating our doors as Happy New Year – Shanah Tovah greetings is a good symbolic way of ‘opening our doors’ again to connect.  It is as simple as writing the words “Shanah Tovah – Happy New Year...Read more...
