Parsha of the Week: 
Vayalech: Deuteronomy 31:1-31:30
Judaism of the Week: Celebrating Rosh Hashanah
Welcome to the High Holidays - Rosh Hashanah will start at sundown this evening. We hope that you've had a meaningful entry into this season. And if not, there's still time - make teshuva by contacting those you feel you've erred against and open your heart - you'll come into these holidays in such a beautiful place for it.

Some more background on some of the traditions of Rosh Hashanah:
Do you know someone who is unable to make it to services to hear the shofar?  Gary Canant will visit those who wish to fulfill the mitzvah of hearing the shofar.  Please call him at 805 215 3805. Yasher koach, Gary!
