"Reyim" means friends, and our friendships are the life of our community.
We look to the stories, wisdom, spiritual insights, and halacha of our tradition to bring meaning into our lives.
Our community is defined by the core Jewish value of gemilut hasadim, compassion and loving kindness.
Please join us for our many Sukkot services throughout the week. We will be singing Hallel, shaking the lulav and etrog, chanting from Megillat Kohelet, circling the prayer space with our lulavim and etrogim (hoshanot & hakafot) and - on Hoshanah Rabbah - whipping willows. Everyone is welcome all the time!
Our Reopening and Reentry Committee, together with our Executive Committee, has approved practices and policies so that we can gather together safely.
These policies are based on the state's guidelines for houses of worship, high vaccination rates in Newton and surrounding towns, and low incidence of virus in our region. We are reevaluating our policies as necessary with the changing virus rates in Newton, Middlesex County and Massachusetts.
Please help us uphold these policies to ensure the health and safety of our sacred community.
Thank you for your cooperation.
