Hunger doesn’t go away just because School is out. It is more important than ever to remember to BRING ONE:  Bring a non-perishable food item EACH TIME YOU COME TO TEMPLE to be donated to the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges.  And maybe even make a few special trips now that our Schools are not in session!

Donate Your Used Media:  A new, free service will pick up books, CDs and DVDs from your curb and donate them to good causes, reuse or recycle them!  For more information, click here .

Transportation is available for congregants who need a ride to services and temple events.  Contact Alice Forman at (973)736-3467 if you need a ride or if you can offer a ride to others.

Parasha D’Varim

Deuteronomy 1-3:22


The Book of Deuteronomy, the fifth and final book of the Torah, begins this week.  Deuteronomy contains a  series of farewell speeches by Moses as the Israelites prepare to cross the Jordan River and enter the Promised Land.  Moses knows that he will not cross the river with them.  This parasha begins the prologue to Deuteronomy which continues in next week’s parasha.  Moses recites  the history of the forty years of wandering in the wilderness.   He reminds the people that God has been with them always and will continue to be with them as their challenges continue in the Promised Land.
