FIRST FRIDAY
SHABBAT

Friday, September 2
6 p.m.
at The LOCC


Following the service, we will enjoy dinner together.

Please RSVP for dinner by
Thursday afternoon, September 1

We are looking forward to worshiping again for our fifth High Holy Day season.  I am so pleased to be leading you and grateful for what we have accomplished together.

Rosh Hashanah service is Monday, October 3
Yom Kippur service is Wednesday, October 12
Both services are at 11 am.

Since we are approaching the beginning of the year, we need to replenish our treasury.  We have a very modest budget for our needs for Shabbat and holiday services and to sustain  ourselves. Congregation Chai has been able to do this due to the generosity of Lake Oconee Community Church, for which we are very grateful.

If each of our families would give an average of $300 (obviously some can do more, some are able to do less), we will be able to meet our needs for the coming year.

Please, at this season, when we feel so blessed, consider how you might support our congregation.

Checks may be made payable to Lake Oconee Congregation Chai, and sent to The LOCC, 1001 Village Park Drive, Suite 107, Greensboro, GA   30642.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me:   ravgerson@aol.com   or (706)338-3483.

Thanks so much, and most of all, I wish you all a happy and healthy coming New Year.

Rabbi Ronald Gerson, DD

PS.  For those who may have already made contributions for the coming year, many thanks!    And, of  course, thank you for support over the past five years.
