Message from the Search Committee

On Shabbat Nasso (June 14/15) we had the privilege of meeting and greeting Rabbi Shmuel Rosenberg, one of the candidates selected by the Stanton Search Committee for consideration as a potential new rabbi. Thanks to the many of you who joined us at shul on Friday evening, Shabbat morning, and Shabbat afternoon.
