What's in a name? We are getting into the Book of Exodus, known in Hebrew as Shemot, The Book of Names. In this week's Torah portion, Va'era, God appears to the Hebrew slaves in Egypt with a new name, a new manifestation in the world. This new, divine name is what will carry the Israelites into freedom.

Come one, come all. Bring your hammers and screwdrivers (both flatheads and Phillips) and help us erect the first Sukkah at Broadway United. We'll meet at 3 pm and with many hands we'll finish quickly. Then folks will be able to enjoy it all week. If you have any outdoor chairs you can spare, bring them along. 

At the Makom Family School, children will make decorations for our Sukkah. It's a team effort!
