Israel Independence Day - One Community!

In a show of communal unity for Israel Independence Day, we are sharing with you both our own program for the holiday as well as that being offered by Temple Isaiah (they are doing the same).  Please show your support of Israel at these great, local, programs:

Israel Independence Day Celebration

Guest Speaker,

His Excellency, the Chief Rabbi of Poland,
Rabbi Michael Schudrich

Originally from Patchogue, Rabbi Schudrich was ordained at JTS.  He served a congregation in Japan before becoming rabbi in Poland in the 1990s.  A well-known world leader of Judaism, he has been responsible for the rebirth of Judaism in Poland.  From 1973-1975 he was also a Hebrew School teacher at NSJC.
