Ritual Committee News

The Ritual Committee voted to change all Friday night services to 7PM. The first Friday of the month during the school year will be a Family Shabbat and the fourth Friday will be called “Fourth Friday at CSH Service” which is an alternative service. There will no longer be a 6 PM service. All services contain the basic prayers that the rabbi requires including Mourner’s Kaddish.

On Dec 27 we will have a Hanukkah pot luck dinner and Hanukkiah lighting at 6:10 PM followed by a 7 PM service.  Sisterhood and Religious School are organizing this Hanukkah event.

Thank you all for submitting your cantor surveys. From the results, it was decided to hire Cantor Eisenberg for another year. Ritual Committee also decided to eliminate services on Erev Second Day Rosh Hashanah due to lack of attendance these past years.

Passover is approaching. If you are interested in helping plan this year’s Seder or have any suggestions, please contact ritual@shaarhashalom.org. I would like to form a Passover committee, so also let me know if you wish to help on this committee. You can text Cheryl Sigel at 432-202-4639 or send email to ritual@shaarhashalom.org
