Shul Announcements

Kiddush is sponsored by the shul. 

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!

Sukkot is a month away. Order your lulav and etrog via Rabbi Hyman today! Rabbi Hyman will order, pick up, and inspect the merchandise for quality and halachic standards. Checks payable to The Westville Synagogue must be received on or before Friday, September 7, 2018. No lulavim will be available last minute so please order now. $60 per adult set. $50 per child set (Strictly kosher but of lesser quality). Pickup at Westville Synagogue, Sunday, September 16, after Maariv, 7:00-7:30 PM. (Pick-up issues can be discussed with Rabbi Hyman prior to purchase.)

If anyone needs a sukkah, please get in touch with Rabbi Hyman.
