Current/Upcoming Events

Dear RTPV Community,

In this week’s Torah portion, Noach, we read how Noah built an ark as a safe haven for himself, his family and animals from the calamity with which God was threatening to destroy the world.  During these tumultuous times, let us join together to transform our community and our prayers into an ark, a haven of comfort and spiritual refuge.  You can read the parasha here.
Our service is at 6:30 PM followed by a potluck dinner (kosher style/ meat, no dairy products; eggs and fish (no shellfish) are OK), Oneg, and tribute to Faith and Jerry Oland, long time members and leaders of RTPV, who are embarking on their next adventure in Northampton, MA.
See the announcements below for upcoming events.
Rabbis Altarescu and Levy
