Shalom Chaverim, 

Spring is a time of youth and vitality, Lag B'Omer marks the spiritual change of seasons from morning to joy, 

and these will all come together this Shabbat at the House of Friends as we host the first annual Jewish High School of CT Westport Shabbaton.

 

The Jewish High School, under the leadership of Rabbi Elisha Paul, has made a mark on our community. It is great pride that we invite this year's freshman class, the largest in the school's history, led by president Ben Marcus (like father, like son!) to join us for a special shabbaton the week. Students, faculty, and Rabbi Paul and his family will join us and help infuse our spring shabbat with the the youthful energy of the next generation of Jewish leaders.

 

Speaking of Jewish leaders, I am writing this from the RCA convention in Stamford, the annual meeting of Rabbis from across North America and abroad, including England, France, Turkey, and of course, Eretz Yisrael.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fascinating presentations by top leaders in rabbinic thought, wonderful networking opportunities, and a chance to make new and enjoy olds friends.

Beit Chaverim is already known around here (oh, you're from the shul that has services on the beach and learn talmud on the boat?), and you never know just who is going to show up.
