Rosh HaShanah (literally, “Head of the Year”) is the Jewish New Year, a time of prayer, self-reflection, and t'shuvah.  It is considered the start of the Jewish High Holiday season, which also includes Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah.

Rosh Hashanah Super Kiddush 

Temple Concord Sisterhood sponsors a Super Kiddush immediately following the morning Rosh Hashanah services.  About three dozen sisters will provide cookies, fruit, cheese, apples, punch, and challah to put sweetness into the new year.  This is open to everyone who attends services, and we’ll have room to socialize with other members.  The Super Kiddush will be held in the Kilmer Mansion or the Dorothy Schagrin Garden, weather permitting.
 
Babs Putzel-Bischoff is our Sisterhood chairwoman for the Super Kiddush.
Sisterhood hopes everyone will attend the Kiddush and wishes all a happy new year.

Additional announcements

 Access Codes
In order to continue our high level of security, certain group codes for the facility mag locks (glass doors) that were established many years ago, have been eliminated. (3636)
 
New codes have been issued for RS parents, teachers, and Torah Study attendees.
The mag lock code only allows entry into the foyer when the building is occupied, you cannot use it to enter the main building or mansion. 
 
If you require frequent access to the building and were using an old code that no longer works,  please contact me to so we can assess your needs and resolve the issue.
