As we prepare for family Seders and our deeply moving Yizkor service, we also remind our giving community of opportunities for sharing the feeling of family. Our Men’s Club collects Me’ot Chetim (“wheat money) to ensure that the needy are able to properly observe Pesach. To read and participate in this effort, please click HERE, and send in your contribution to Men’s Club at the synagogue address.
Another vitally important initiative, “selling” your chametz for the holiday, may be accomplished by downloading the form HERE, filling out and returning it to Assistant Cantor Leonard Gutman via postal mail, or by scanning and sending to email@example.com. Contributions to CSZ to help make this possible are also warmly welcomed.
Please send forms by Friday, April 3, 2020.
Beginning at the second Seder and proceeding for a total of 49 nights, it is a mitzvah to count each day leading up to Shavuot. Here is a resource for fulfilling the mitzvah of counting the Omer: https://www.shaareyzedek.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Omer-Calendar-2020.pdf
The High Holy Days experience at Congregation Shaarey Zedek is, unquestionably, without parallel. This is where our legacy shines brightest.
Our sanctuary of more than 2,000 is filled with members of all ages, families and guests. With our clergy robed in white, and our choir under the direction of our Hazzan in front of the magnificent multi-story stained glass windows surrounding our bimah, we cannot help but feel an elevated sense of spirituality.
Join us for reflection, friendship, remembrance, a recommitment to acts of loving kindness, and an experience that binds us to one another and God in a powerful and transformative way.
