Shul Announcements

Kiddush is sponsored by the shul. Dessert and a bottle of liquor are sponsored by Evelyn Kantrowitz in honor of the 5th yahrzeit of her brother Shlomo Kantrowitz.

The Shabbat Family Gathering this week will be at the home of Sherry and Ed Shrager, 140 Laurel Road (weather permitting).

Each year Westville Synagogue tries to add simcha and community to our celebrations of the chagim by offering special congregational kiddushes. We’d like to continue this tradition but can’t without your help. Please consider making a donation to help defray the cost of our lovely kiddushes. Contributions sent to the synagogue office by September 7th 2018 would assist us in our planning and purchasing and would be most appreciated. Thank you!
