ANNOUNCEMENTS

PARTICIPATORY SERVICE EXPERIMENT
 
Daniel Hettleman would like to experiment with a highly participatory service leadership this coming shabbat, December 19th.  If you are planning on attending zoom services this coming Saturday, please email him at danielhettleman@gmail.com to discuss ways he'd like to be able to include you in the service.

BOOK STUDY GROUP UPDATE
 
Because of difficulties obtaining the ‘Dignity of Difference’ book, we’ve decided to honor Jonathan Sacks’ life and engage in discussion around ‘clean speech’ and healthy dialogue by listening to the following podcast.  Discussion of this podcast will take place on December 19th after services, at approximately noon.  We will stay on the same zoom link that we use that day for services. People are obviously welcome to eat lunch while we talk.
