Gather the People
Here is some of the feedback from Jewish Young Professionals and families after our Rosh Hashanah services.
"The prayers this Rosh Hashanah were incredible!" — David
"Thanks very much to you and you family for putting on the minyan!" — Debby
"Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the days of awesome again this. It was such a high experience." — Judah
"Only you and the Rebbitzin are able to bring together such a special group of people...."
We may not have a building, but we have a soul and we are living up to the mission that Hashem gave to our ancestors.
As it is written in this week's parsha:
Gather the people—men, women, children, and the strangers in your communities—that they may hear and so learn to revere Hashem your God and to observe... this Teaching. (Devarim 31:12)
Gather the people - This is one of the features which defines Pico Shul.
Gather the people- men, women, children, and the strangers in your communities- in backyards, and Shabbat Tents at music festivals, at retreats in the mountains, at online classes and seminars, and at welcoming inspiring services.
Thanks to generous donors Pico Shul gathered the people even during the challenging previous year.
And with your help today Pico Shul will be able to gather the people during this New Year 5782.
As you know, Pico Shul brings Jews together from all backgrounds, most who are not members of regular congregations, but care deeply about being Jewish, Israel and ensuring there is a thriving Jewish future.
Please help us with our special mission as we gather the people, and bring light, joy, harmony, and honor to the Jewish people.
Your generous donation today will make a big difference in our ability to reach out to Jewish singles, the unaffiliated, and those in need.
Shabbat Shalom / Good Shabbos
May you and your loved ones be SEALED in the Book of Life for a healthy, joyous and successful New Year!
Rabbi Yonah and Rachel Bookstein
