High Holidays
Help Needed
1.  Our Youth Committee is starting to prepare for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur at Netivot Shalom.  As we have done in other years, we will be hiring babysitters to assist in supervising groups.  We are looking for 2-3 adult babysitter with child care experience who might be able to supervise our youngest children.  

2.  In order to ensure that our youth have a meaningful experience on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, we are asking for parent volunteers to assist in coordinating tefilla and / or run programs in youth groups.  This would involve only a short amount of time on the part of a parent volunteer but would significantly affect the children's experience of the chagim.  

3.  We are looking for drivers to deliver honey to members of Netivot Shalom during the week prior to Rosh Hashana.  This should only take a little while of your time.

If you can assist in any of these areas, please contact Pam Scheininger at

Rabbi Yossi Pollak together with Rabbi Helfgot will lead a special musical kumzits with singing, divrei Torah, and light refreshments the first night of slichot, Motzei Shabbat, September 5 at 10:15 PM followed by slichot at 11:00 PM. Sponsors for the program are welcome and encouraged, and should contact Rabbi Helfgot or Michael Rogovin. Please join us as we join together to enter the Yamim Noraim with songs and words of yearning and spirituality.
