Shalom Chaverim,
Although the guns are silent for the moment, Israel is still at war. 
Despite the best efforts by her detractors to paint Israel as a brutal conquering force, TzH"L is an extremely moral army. In this week's parasha we learn about the moral conduct of soldiers during battle. Come check it out on Shabbat! 
 
This Shabbat we are proud to present scholar in residenceRabbi Dr. Lewis Glinert, from Dartmouth College. He will speak on "What's so funny about being Jewish: An insider's look at Jewish humor". 
An accomplished linguist, Rabbi Glinert will also speak at seudat shlishit on some unknown secrets of the Hebrew language. Maybe we can get him to share one of his many hasidic stories, too!
Come to Fairfield this Sunday to cheer on Beit Chaverim's own Holy Smokes BBQ Team 
 
Scroll down for info on our visit by Rabbi Avi Orlow from the Foundation for Jewish Camp,   Rosh Hashana classes, and our first Rosh Hashana Shofar Jam. Our next community Shabbat Dinner will be Friday night, Sep 26. After 2 days of Rosh Hashana, leave the driving to us!
 
See you soon at the House Of Friends!
Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Greg
 
PS
The High Holidays are coming!
We are looking for a few good men (and women!) to serve as ushers (different shifts available) for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Let's make sure that all who come to Beit Chaverim, especially first timers, immediately feel the warmth we are famous for! Please contact Flo Danzer if you are interested.

A refuah shlaima to our friend AJ, who is on the mend. If you are interested in joining the Bikkur Cholim team to support the sick and their families, newborn Moms, shut ins,  or anyone in our community who could use some TLC, please contactRona Wall.
 
Finally- please join us for our mincha and Seudat Shlishit at6:30PM PM this Shabbat afternoon (note earlier time). We have been having a wonderful time with spirited singing, abon mot or two, a nosh, and great company as we try to keep the Shabbat from slipping away.
