Celebration of Israel Visual Tefillah, Preneg & Chase Kaplan, guest speaker:  Another "Our Amazing Young Adults" Program
Join us on March 3 at 7 PM for our famous Beth Miriam Preneg of wine and cheese and then at 7:30 for our Visual Tefillah service featuring congregants’ photos from Israel trips. 

As well, we will welcome Chase Kaplan – as part of our Amazing Young People’s program – whose experiences on Birthright Israel will inspire you.  If you or your children or grandchildren are interested in Birthright, you won’t want to miss Chase’s presentation.

Everyone is most welcome to the Preneg and the service.
