Congregation Beth El

Michigan's oldest synagogue in continuous use since 1885



Passover will soon be upon us so I take this moment along with the two boards to wish you a Happy Passover. I always find this to be a wonderful time of the year. It's time to dig out our favorite Passover receipes, it's usually Spring break from school, vacation time and a time to watch the earth come back to life. 

I encourage you to take a moment and RSVP for the community Seder on Saturday, April 11. You will find all the details in the bulletin. I know that Rabbi Segal is going to lead us in a wonderful Seder service and all of you will provide wonderful parts of the meal. 
I want you to remind you that beginning in April, Friday Shabbat services will begin at 6pm. This will give families an opportunity to attend services without running into bed time and the rest of us can attend early service and go home or out for Shabbat dinner. 
I would like you to know that we will inform you about our future rabbinic leadership very soon. Plans are coming along well and as soon as the final negotiations are complete we will share the news. 

Shalom, Terry
