  • Preparing for the Holidays: Rabbi Meth’s 3-week series of classes in preparation for Passover continues this Shabbat at 5:45pm. The classes on "How We Can Enjoy and Appreciate Passover" will help us learn how to maximize the meaning of the Pesach experience, and reclaim Passover as a meaningful and enjoyable holiday.

  • Pesach Cleaning Approaches: As we begin preparing the syngogue building for the annual Passover clean-up, we ask that you pay special attention to the clothes closet and the library. Please take home all personal items that cannot be hung up on a hangar so that Jose can do a proper clean up job. Items that are not hung up or removed will have to be discarded. We wish everyone a chag kasher v'sameach.

  • Pesach Fundraising for Local Families: Rabbi Mendelson and Rabbi Meth are collecting for local individuals and families in need of funds to help them have a beautiful, dignified, and complete Sedarim. Please help this very important cause as a number of you did at Purim. Please make your checks payable to GNYOB and send them to: Rabbi Jacob Mendelson, 555 West McKinley Ave, Bridgeport, Ct. 06604.

  • Hatzlacha to Malcolm Wilson: It is our happy duty to announce that Malcolm Wilson, son of Arnell Wilson, the  synagogue office administrator will soon be making aliyah to Israel.  We have just learned that Malcolm will be leaving for Israel on Tuesday, March 25th as part of the next Nefesh b'Nefesh group of Olim. Malcolm plans to complete his graduate degree before joining the IDF as the latest Ahavath Achim member to fulfill te dream of settling in Israel.
    We are sorry that Malcolm will not be in Connecticut to share this Shabbat with us so that we could wish him Good Luck and Mazel Tov personally, but we do send him our very best wishes with much admiration as Malcolm sets forth on his aliyah.  On behalf of the Officers and Board and all the membership, we wish Malcolm much success and happiness as he begins his new journey as an Israeli citizen.מאחלים אנחנו שתצליח מאד בכל דרכיך, והשהשם ישלח
    ברכתו בפעולותיך. אהבתנו אותך ותפלותנו בעדך ילוו אותך לארצנו. צאתכם לשלום.
    Rabbi Ephraim Meth, Interim Rabbi
    Elaine Schiller and Barbara Tuckel, Co-Presidents.
