Solidarity Shabbat  |November 2  |Sudbury – Central
Solidarity Shabbat this Friday

Shabbat service in solidarity with the community of Pittsburg this coming Friday at 6:30 PM at the synagogue.

Donna Speigel, our immediate past president, lost her cousin Joyce Feinberg in this tragedy.  Donna and Mitch will be unable to join us as they will be in Pittsburgh but they will certainly be in our prayers.

I would also appreciate if you could share this message with our other interfaith partners and congregations.

Many thanks,

Emily Caruso Parnell

Board president

Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue
