Missing Prayer Books

Many members borrowed prayer books — both our regular Shabbat service books and High Holiday books — when we were holding online-only services during the pandemic. Please make an effort to return these. You can bring them back when you come for services or drop them off on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM when the Mah-Jong group meets.
