Save the Date - Meeting with Jake Auchincloss: Please note that we will be meeting with our congressman, Jake Auchincloss, on Sunday morning Oct. 17th at 10:00am, at shul to discuss Israel and the Middle East. As a freshman, Auchincloss signed a letter along with 12 other Democrats to condemn his colleagues for the moral equivalence they drew between the U.S. and Israel, and Hamas and the Taliban. It is important that we express our appreciation for his support of Israel and to use this opportunity to encourage continued action along these lines. As recent events demonstrates support for Israel in the House of Representatives has been challenge by some of its members requiring us to be vigilant in our pro Israel activism.
This event will be co-hosted by the other modern orthodox congregations in the area.
