Calling All Helping Hands

posted Aug 30, 2017, 6:00 PM by Larry Finkelstein   [ updated Oct 22, 2017, 7:15 AM ]

We would be thrilled to have you join our volunteers for an hour at the registration desk on a day you are planning to attend High Holiday services.

It's really very simple (not work intensive at all!). Of course it will provide you an opportunity to connect a few names and faces.

There are two opportunities: one is to check off names as people enter for services. The other is to act as a greeter as people enter the building and guide them to the registration table.

If interested, please email info@leyvhair.org or leave a phone message on Leyv Ha-Ir's voicemail (215.629.1995). Someone will happily contact you!

Shabbat Morning Service - Saturday, August 5

posted Jul 25, 2017, 9:37 PM by Larry Finkelstein   [ updated Aug 6, 2017, 8:31 AM ]

LoadingTorah Portion: Parashat Va'et-hannan / פרשת ואתחנן
Deuteronomy 3:23 - 7:11

The Torah reading of Va'et'khanan continues the retrospective view of the 40 years in the desert, given by Moses and ending in a list of "commandments, statutes and ordinances." This is rich material-not only the ten commandments, but also the Shema, the credo statement of Judaism; we even find the passage for "the wise son" in the Haggadah.

Lay-led Shabbat Morning Services are followed by pot-luck veggie/dairy lunch and time to schmooze.

10:00am - 12:30pm
The Ethical Society Building, 1906 S. Rittenhouse Sq., 2nd floor Collier Room

Welcome Rabbi Julie Greenberg back from her summer break! Enjoy a delicious brunch and a rabbi­ led discussion of "The World to Come" by Dara Horn. 

A million-dollar Chagall is stolen from a museum during a singles' cocktail hour. The unlikely thief, former child prodigy Benjamin Ziskind, is convinced that the painting once hung in his parents' living room. This work of art opens a door through which we discover his family's startling history - from an orphanage in Soviet Russia where Chagall taught to suburban New Jersey and the jungles of Vietnam.

The cost to attend is $10.00 for members and $15.00 for guests. Make your reservation now by email (info@leyvhair.org) or phone (215-629-1995). Reservations must be received by Thursday, August 24, 2016.
