Lulav & Etrog Sets - Last chance to order!

If you haven't ordered your Lulav & Etrog Set, you can still get your order in before the morning of this Sunday, Sept 12!

  • The cost is $60 - This is our cost price! 
    This is for a good quality kosher set, grown in Israel from the most reliable heirloom Etrogim seeds.
  • To Order:
    Use this link for your payment jbayarea.org/give and type Lulav in the memo. Or reply to this email to reserve now and pay with a check later.

The four species which we 'take' on Sukkot and recite a special blessing over on each day of the holiday (except for Shabbat) are: Etrog, 3 twigs of myrtle (Hadassim), 2 twigs from a specific type of willow bush (Arovot), and the date palm (Lulav). 

 This is a very special hands-on biblical Mitzvah for the holiday of Sukkot that is easy to take part in!

Coffee & Kabbalah Class - Shabbat Morning

 WEEKLY CLASS:

Coffee & Kabbalah

The more we learn, the more we realize
there's so much more we want to know!

 

What is Kabbalah & Chassidut? 

Kabbalah and Chassidut are the continuation of a millennia old heritage of Jewish study that peers below the surface to uncover the deeper meaning behind existence, G-d, human life, individual & global purpose, with a broad perspective on the past, present and future. 

If Torah text would be compared to the body, then Kabbalah would be compared to the soul within. 

Join us for Coffee & Kabbalah and come away with greater understanding and a new zest for living your life with positivity, happiness, harmony and a sense of achievement.

Everyone is welcome. No prior knowledge necessary!

When?
Shabbat mornings at 9:00 am (1 hr class).  

Come and join us!

Led by Rabbi Yitzchok Schmukler
