A New Year Message from our Rabbis
“From year to year we envisage change and improvement, of ourselves and our circumstances. Real lasting change is hard to achieve. For our new building we’ve forecast it so many times: ‘this year will be the year ‘. Now we’re almost there. When will we be able to say the same about the most important changes we seek for our lives? That’s our task for these High Holydays. Shanah tovah to you! “
