Welcome to Congregation Beth Israel!
 Whether you are a life-long member or just new to the community, I want to welcome you to our wonderful community and wish you a Shanah Tovah. 
 It’s hard to believe that the High Holy Days are are right around the corner. If you are searching for a place to experience the beauty and awe of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, I’d like to invite you to join us this year. I am excited and honored to be leading Beth Israel for the fifth year in a row. And I am also very pleased that I will be sharing the bima with our very talented cantorial soloist, Andrea Shupack. 
 The High Holy Days are a time for reflection, prayer, introspection, forgiveness and re-connection. It is my hope that joining Beth Israel on this journey will allow you to experience any or all of these goals. 
 May you have a spiritually meaningful High Holy Day experience with us. Below you will find our schedule of services. 
 I hope that you and your loved ones have a very sweet year ahead, filled with blessings and peace. 
-- Rabbi Joshua Samuels
