HIgh Holidays

The Days of Awe ended with an awesome day! A usually beautiful day with a packed house for 11 am Yom Kippur aservices, followed by Yizkor, then a three hour praise and worship service, closed out with the final hours of services to " close the door" and await the sounding of the final 30 shofar blasts.
The beautiful 20 second blast closed the day, prior to a "break the fast" meal that was fabulous.

Many spent the day in deep worship and praise while being mindful of the sinful nature they had shown over the past year...and the prayers of forgiveness rang thru the whole day.
It was a great holiday this year, with 15 ir more salvations and a very attentive and worshipful crowd.

No on to Succot!

What a blessing!

We led praise and worship for about 400 people. The room was electric with wonderful liturgical vocals by our Cantor Rick, who was awesome.
The Rabbi's message was about G-d's promises to us, and there are so many he could only touch upn some in the time he had to share.
We enjoyed the Spirit filled atmosphere and the Days of Awe kicked off with the sounding of the shofar,a nd later multiple shofars as congreants brought their own to blow.
A great service at CBH.

A very Happy New Year and the best of the Days Of Awe to all of you who read this.
It is a terrific time of the year to reflect, regroup and regather your thought about how you are living your life.
Is it time to get closer to G-d? To rethink whether or not you have your priorities straight.
Are you happy? Are you treating your body the way it needs to be cared for?
So much to be thankful for and so much more to improve on!
My prayer for you is that you will get closer to HIM in the next year and continue to grow in faith and personal relationships with those who are important in your life.
