Shabbat Services 6/22-23/18

Hi friends,  I’m writing to you from New Jersey where among other things I will be attending a high school reunion in Vineland and attending services at the synagogue of my youth (and where I had my Bar Mitzvah) Sons of Jacob Congregation, the last remaining Orthodox shul in Cumberland County!   Check out the photo:

Eileen and Elliot will be leading services at the JCC Friday evening at 7:30  and Saturday morning at 9:30.  The very interesting and action-packed Torah reading is from Parashat Chukat in the Book of Bamidbar.

Some sad news.  Joel Katz’s sister Sheri Ellen Katz (Sura Etta Bat Tzvi Hersh HaCohain) died yesterday.  The funeral is in New Jersey.  There will be no shiva or visitation at the Katz residence.  Condolences can be sent to Joel Katz, 10835 Luscombe Ct, New Port Richey, FL 34654   (727) 845-4402  e-mail

Wishing you all a good Shabbos and weekend.  I’ll be back with Chris and the grandsons next week, Rabbi Ron Becker
