Community, Acceptance. That's Beth Israel Honesdale.
“At Congregation Beth Israel, 30-50 people come to an average Shabbat service, not 300 or 500, so there’s a communitarian nature that’s extraordinary. When someone is sick, we’re all concerned. When someone celebrates, we’re all applauding. Whether you’re here every week, once a month, or one week a year, we all know and care for each other.”
- Rabbi Elliott A. Kleinman
For six days you may perform labor, but the seventh day is a complete Sabbath - a day of rest, holy to Adonai... - Exodus 31:15-17
