ROSH HASHANAH - The Jewish New Year
Rosh Hashanah 2011 begins Wednesday Night 9/28 and runs through Friday evening 9/30, when Shabbat begins. We wish one and all: A Happy, Healthy and Sweet New Year, filled with much blessing.
Most students will be headed home for the Rosh Hashanah holiday, but for those who will remain up here, Shabbos House will be hosting traditional, campus-friendly services and holiday meals for both days of the Rosh Hashanah holiday.
Faculty and nearby community are also welcome, there's no charge or tickets, but RSVP's are appreciated for the meals (so we can best prepare) and donations are welcome to help defray the cost.
Wednesday 9/28: 7pm Prayers, 8pm
All the above Rosh Hashanah Services and Meals will be at Shabbos House: 320 Fuller Road, near Great Dane Drive.
If you will be up here and joining us: please RSVP (firstname.lastname@example.org or 438-4227) with us, so we can have a better idea on how to best prepare.
For those interested in High Holiday prayer services in area synagogues, UAlbany Hillel will be happy to arrange that for you. Contact Hillel at 489-8573*24. Or give Shabbos House a call 438-4227.
