Current/Upcoming Events

Dear RTPV Family,

No sooner do we take a breath from the intensity of the High Holidays than we are thinking about the joyful holiday of Sukkot, a back-to-nature celebration of our connection to the land and the earth’s bounty.
We hope you will join us for our first early service and pot luck dinner of the New Year.  Please bring a vegetarian (no meat but dairy, eggs and non-shellfish fish are OK) entree, salad/ side dish or dessert to share.
Our service at 6:30 will include a Sukkot activity for all.  Dinner and schmoozing begin at 7:30.
See our announcements below.  Come and help us build the RTPV sukkah this Sunday at 4:00 followed by wine, cheese and snacks. For more information about Sukkot, with links to activities and more, click here.
Shana Tova!
Rabbi Levy and Altarescu
