Shavuah tov, friends!

Attached our News/Pews for this month. In April, we posted the bulletin on the website, and some mentioned to me that they did not receive their personal copy. I apologize for this. This month , our usual practice.  SPECIAL: we are meeting at Chabad this Shabbat morning as explained in the bulletin:

“Why Chabad this Saturday?

Congregation Israel  has a wonderful relationship with the Rabbis of Chabad Lubavitch. We have participated in many of their activities of general Jewish interest. Rabbi Yossi Marrus and Hazzan study voice technique and study Torah together each Friday.  While our religious philosophies differ in substantial ways, our love of eretz Yisrael and the Jewish people are passionate. We strive to help make Jews better people through study and mitzvot. On the eve of the dedication of their new Center for Jewish Life, we thought to daven and celebrate with them this Shabbat with their special guest Hazzan Yehoshua Samuels from New York. 9:30 am, 14535 Blanco Road.”

Many of you know I have devoted a major portion of my practice to interfaith and interdenominational understanding and sharing. I hope you will welcome this opportunity for sharing.
