News & Highlights

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

November 18, 2014
שַׁאֲלוּ, שְׁלוֹם יְרוּשָׁלִָם
-Psalm 122

We are horrified at the acts of violence and murder that took place on Tuesday morning in a Jerusalem synagogue.  We are saddened not just by these acts of terror which occurred in a house of prayer and study, but by the increasing tone of violence and vengeance in this beloved city of peace. 

May the Holy One comfort all who mourn the terrible loss of four rabbis and one Druze police officer and may their souls be wrapped in the bond of Eternal Life.  We will say their names on Shabbat Morning at Shmita Shabbat. 

Let us continue our prayers for peace and let them be our protest to the travesty of this heinous act of desecration of life during sacred time in sacred space.   

Please read this account of a rabbinic colleague's visit to the Shiva house of Moshe Twersky z"l whose lineage included founder of Harvard's Jewish Studies program and Hasidic master Rabbi Twersky and the great Jewish philosopher Rabbi Dr. Joseph Soloveitchik.

Oneg Baking Day

Sunday, December 21, 10:00am

Our Mother’s Day and follow-up baking days left us with enough goodies to get through the summer and fall.  However, we now find ourselves in serious need of yummy treats to get us through the winter. Join the GREAT bakers of CHS in spending a warm day in the kitchen laughing and learning while baking treats for Onegs.
