A busy Second Sunday of Advent awaits. I trust you will be able to join us for Worship, Coffee Hour, Forum, Bible Study, and all the usual Sunday Morning programs.
The memorial service for Steve Leichter will be at Temple Sinai, 2808 Summit Street, Oakland, Sunday afternoon at 1:30. Rabbi Steve Chester and I will officiate. Following the service there will be a reception and memory sharing time in synagogue’s social hall. Carol and family are asking us to help supply cookies for about 200. If you can help in this regard let me know. You can bring the cookies with you to the service or bring them to LABC and Declan Brown will make sure they are taken to Temple Sinai. Carol also asked me to let you know that the family will be sitting Shiva (Seven day mourning period) at their home from Monday thru Sunday next week if you would like to come by.
Let us pray for a cessation of shootings, stabbings, beatings and verbal assaults in the United States of America. May Advent be a time of national introspection for us all around what appears to an addiction to violence deep within our national soul.
