President’s Message – November 6

Shabbat Shalom!

The word for the week:”

Tonight I say Kaddish for my dad, Bernd Lewkowitz, who passed on 3 years ago. It is a time where I feel sad, nostalgic and miss my family in the US so much. This is also a time to remember all the wonderful times that we shared together. It reminds me to be grateful for the richness and blessings that my family brings to my life.  It also reminds me to grasp every opportunity that I have to connect with my friends, family and community.

The act of saying Kaddish in Judaism gives us all the opportunity to remember our past and express our hope for the future. Learn more in this article below.

Please see the below times and dates regarding our return to in person services at The Nidhe Israel Synagogue, Bridgetown. Please note that all COVID protocols will be observed so please bring your facemasks. Please note that we will continue our ZOOM services for those people unable to attend in person.
If you would like to host an Oneg Shabbat at our in-person services please contact (the dates still available are December 11th and 25th).
