Join us Friday Night, Sleep in Late(r) Saturday!

Join us at NSJC for the next in my series on on Intermarriage and Interfaith Relationships this Friday at 8pm during services.  We take a look at issues surrounding dating.

Come back on Saturday morning at 9:15am for the next in our Extra Soul Shabbat Saturday morning services.  We promise to end at (just about) the same time, but provide all the same rich, intellectual, emotional and spiritual uplift you'd normally get from Saturday mornings.

Shabbat Shalom and Happy Hanukkah,
