Kaddish
Mourners Kaddish
“Magnified and sanctified be His great name…”

These are the opening words to the Mourner’s Kaddish, the words that have been spoken throughout the generations… the words that unite the generations like no others. Do you need to say Kaddish? Are you able to be there so others can fulfill this timeless mitzvah? Please help your fellow congregants by making a commitment to attend at least one morning minyan a month. Invest a few minutes of your time to feel good about yourself while helping others feel better about themselves. Kiddush follows morning minyan, Monday through Friday.

Gabbai
Honor yourself and your congregation by participating in services throughout the year as a Gabbai. Training is provided to ensure your comfort in being prepared for this special position. If interested in becoming a Gabbai, please contact the Clergy Assistant.
