Join Rabbi David Fainsilber as he leads music-filled Shabbat Shuvah services on Oct. 4 at 6 p.m.

Shabbat Shuvah is the introspection Shabbat that falls during the Ten Days of Repentance. Guests and visitors to Stowe are most welcome. Our monthly Homegrown Shabbat will follow our service. Please bring a vegetarian/vegan, peanut-free potluck dish to share with others.

Given the critical needs of our Lamoille Community Food Share, we invite you to take a “green bag” from our foyer and return it with in-date nonperishables.

Most needed items include: peanut butter, beans, tuna fish, cereal and oatmeal, dry milk and canned fruit. Also, toiletries and pet food.

L’Shanah Tovah! This uplifting greeting is frequently exchanged by Jews all around the world. During the “Days of Awe” (the 10 days beginning with Rosh Hashanah and ending with Yom Kippur), the shofar is sounded amidst solemn prayer in hopes of a sweet year ahead.

Kol Nidre services will be offered on Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. On Oct. 9, Yom Kippur services will begin at 9:30 a.m. The Yizkor memorial service is part of the morning service. If you plan to attend, or need guest tickets, purchase them online by visiting
