Prepare For High Holidays At Beth Ahm
Congregation Beth Ahm in Verona will be the center of a dynamic buzz of activity on the weekend of September 19 to 21, when residents of Verona and surrounding communities are invited to participate in Commitment Weekend, the synagogue’s annual pre-High Holiday celebrations. The weekend is an annual Beth Ahm tradition, with synagogue members rededicating themselves to the institution and the community and reaching out to local residents to join them as they prepare to celebrate the joy and promise of a new year.
The theme of Rabbi Mark Biller’s talks throughout the weekend will be “God’s Broken Promises,” with stimulating discussion following his presentations. First on the line-up of the weekend’s activities will be Friday evening services at 6:30 p.m., followed by a delicious dinner. The cost for the dinner is $20 per person or $40 for a family.
Saturday, September 20 services will begin at 9:45 a.m. and will be followed by a lunch-kiddush, free of charge to all attendees. Selichot, a music-filled reflective night-time service that initiates the High Holiday period, will begin on Saturday night at 9 p.m.
On Sunday, September 21, Cantor Marsha Schreier continues the synagogue’s musical traditions by leading a performance of selections from The Rothschilds, a musical by the creators of Fiddler on the Roof that tells of the rise of the Rothschild family from humble beginnings in Germany to the founding of a financial empire and the political influence that grew from it. The performing ensemble will feature a mix of congregants and community members. The admission fee is $8, which includes snacks and cold drinks.
Congregation Beth Ahm is an egalitarian, Conservative synagogue with an almost 80-year history in the community. All are welcome to attend any of the weekend’s events. For more information, call or email the office at 973-239-0754 or [email protected]
