The picnic is going to be spectacular this year; you won’t want to miss out! We have a great event planned with 14 Riders raring to go and you can spot them by their blue RRA t-shirts!!! Anyone can ride, however! There will be a silent auction AND a Chinese raffle with attendance prizes for adults and kids! Way cool balloons, professional face painting, Origami, and a free lunch! What more can you ask for? Please call Jeff or Laura in the office to make your Pledge. Please pledge generously!

As announced last Shabbat, NHBZ is forming a buddy system for those who would like to have a “buddy” help guide them through the Siddur and Chumash during services. We are looking for those who can serve as the “Buddy”.

~ This Week’s Torah Trivia ~

Last Week’s Question: What is so special about this Parsha that everyone should listen to it?

Answer. The Aseret Hadibrot are restated here. These are the 10 Declarations commonly misnamed as the 10 Commandments.

This Week’s Question: A very famous saying comes from this parsha that is even used today. What is it?

  • Check your email and respond to the NHBZ Yizkor Book of Remembrance listing for this coming Yom Kippur and Yizkor services.
  • If you know of anyone who would like to receive the NHBZ Shabbat bulletin, please send their email to the office.
