The next Hadassah Book Group will be on Sunday, November 8 at 4 PM via Zoom .The link will be provided in a future email. Here is what Amazon has to say about the book: In The Golem and the Jinni, a chance meeting between mythical beings takes readers on a dazzling journey through cultures in turn-of-the-century New York.
Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a disgraced rabbi who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic and dies at sea on the voyage from Poland. Chava is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York harbor in 1899. Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire born in the ancient Syrian desert, trapped in an old copper flask, and released in New York City, though still not entirely free.
Ahmad and Chava become unlikely friends and soul mates with a mystical connection. Marvellous and compulsively readable, Helene Wecker’s debut novel The Golem and the Jinni weaves strands of Yiddish and Middle Eastern literature, historical fiction and magical fable, into a wondrously inventive and unforgettable tale.

This year, we will officially be guests of Temple Emanuel in Denver for the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services they are hosting. The Laramie Jewish Community has also invited Mt. Sinai members to attend their services.
Mt. Sinai is not holding High Holy Day services this year out of an abundance of caution based on the recommendations of physicians in our community. One of the last things Rabbi Moldo did for our community was to give his blessing to do this for this year.
We will have our own Tashlich service after the morning Rosh Hashanah service. We also will have our own Yizkor service in the afternoon of Yom Kippur.
The following is the information you will need to connect for the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services with Temple Emanuel in Denver this year.
Temple Emanuel’s worship services will be live streamed through their website (not on Zoom). Temple Emanuel is offering additional programs via Zoom. If you want to participate in them, please register with Temple Emanuel. You do not need to register for the live streamed worship services.
Livestream worship. All worship services will be available as live streamed content both on our website here and on our Facebook page. We’re excited to launch our new home for livestream: www.EmanuelDenver.org/Livestream.
Zoom Meetings. Many sessions, including study sessions and targeted youth experiences, will be hosted over Zoom. Just like we’ve been doing for Torah Study, participation in the Zoom session will require registration. Once you have registered, you will receive a link to the Zoom meeting. If you would like to watch the session without participating, you are welcome to do so and can find it streamed on our website and Facebook Live.
Password Protection. For security purposes, we have password protected several registration forms and session links. If you are a member in good standing, you will receive this password in the mailed High Holy Day Bulletin as well as in your email. It is imperative to the security of our community that this password is not shared. We thank you in advance for your discretion and effort to keep our virtual gatherings safe.
