SunwheelJoin us Thursday as we go see Wonder Woman, then come to our family-friendly musical Shabbat service on Friday, followed by a pizza potluck. We’ll also be turning our Sun Wheel Friday in honor of the summer solstice and celebrating our community members who have birthdays and anniversaries in June through September.

Shabbat Services

Friday​, June 23, 6:30 p.m.
This week is a family-friendly musical Shabbat service with a story beginning at 6:30, followed by pizza potluck at 7:15, RSVP to requested so we know how much to order.

We will turn our Sun Wheel this Friday in honor of the summer solstice. During this service, those celebrating birthdays and anniversaries June through September will be invited to come up to the bimah for a joyous blessing. (Please write to Robin Frisch with your birthday and anniversary dates so we can extend a personal invitation when it is time for you to receive your special blessings.)

Oneg Host: Religious School

Rabbi Sparr Office Hours

Rabbi Sparr will be holding office hours Friday afternoon this week. If you have an urgent need, please don’t hesitate to ring her anytime. She may also be reached by e-mail.

Movie Outings

Join us for two fun movie experiences, both at the Lowell Showcase Cinema! On Thursday, June 22nd, at 7:05 p.m., we’ll be seeing Wonder Woman. Go online to buy tickets in advance or get them the day of the show. There is a senior discount for those 60 years old and older. We will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the lobby and all go in together. We thought it would be special to see this show together since the star, Gal Gadot, is Israeli! Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

The second movie is Carole King – Captured Live. There is only one showing, on Tuesday, July 11th at 7:00 p.m. You are encouraged to buy advance tickets. Tickets are $16.00 each and Robin Frisch has an extra ticket if anyone needs one. We will meet in the lobby at 6:30 pm.

Let Robin Frisch know if you are planning to attend either show: or 630-915-5335. Please come and join in the fun!
