Tashlich — Closer to You!

The Rosh Hashanah ceremony of throwing crumbs into flowing water symbolizes our hope that God will "cast away our sins in the depths of the sea." This year, instead of one outdoor Tashlich ceremony, we're setting up multiple ceremonies in Caldwell, West/North Caldwell, West Orange, Montville, and Verona on Sunday, Sep. 20, (2nd Day of Rosh Hashanah), and additional dates. CLICK FOR DETAILS AND TO REGISTER

…………………………………………………………………………
Would you like to hear Shofar
right outside your home?


We're commanded to hear the Shofar on Rosh Hashanah. Rabbi Silverstein has ruled that hearing the Shofar over Zoom will fulfill the mitzvah/commandment. But if you really want to hear the Shofar sound "live," there are 3 ways! Find out how by reading the message under Cantor Caplan's video! CLICK HERE

CARING COMMITTEE

Our Caring Committee, in conjunction with our CAI Board, seek to become aware of needs, and to engage as many CAI volunteers as possible in conducting acts of Hesed [lovingkindness] to meet those needs. If you need assistance or would like to provide assistance, contact us by mail, caringcommittee@agudath.org, or phone, (973) 226-3600, ext. 142, and someone will reach out to you as soon as possible. Your patience is appreciated.
     • Volunteers Waiver: submit online or print
     • Waiver for Recipients of Help: submit online or print

 


                To comply with current urgent “physical distancing” requirements, our building is temporarily closed for our regular           activities and services. Rest assured, however, the CAI community does NOT close down.
We are in frequent communication (electronically), caring for those in need, educating children, teens, and adults
via video, clergy officiating at urgent life cycle moments, as well as guidance via the internet.

Hazak hazak VeNeet'hazake – "Let us be strong by gaining strength from one another."
