  • After a very successful meeting in our shul last month, we are pleased to announce that a new Shul Board has been appointed.

We are also excited to have Rabbi Bitton continue his journey with the SCOP community for another successful year of spiritual leadership and guidance.

  • ChazzanThis year, we have the honor of hosting Chazzan Shimon Cohen from Israel who will be joining us to enhance our Tefillot. The Chazzan will be here for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Please reach out to Rabbi Bitton if you would like to host the Chazzan for a meal during the High Holidays.
  • Seating-To ensure the comfort of everyone in the community, we ask that seats be reserved and paid for in advance so that we can properly accommodate everyone’s needs. This year you can submit your seat reservation by clicking here. Please note that membership must be paid in full to take advantage of the discounted seating prices for the High Holidays. Due to limited space, we cannot guarantee any reservations received after Thursday, September 22, 2022.

  • Babysitting- As we look to keep a high level of spirituality during the High Holidays, we are considering hiring a babysitter to watch the young kids in the community throughout the services. Please reach out to Jacky Rehanian if you plan to bring any small children who will require extra supervision during the High Holiday services. 

  • Lulav and Etrog Orders- Please complete the Lulav and Etrog form here. Deadline for all orders is Wednesday, October 5, 2022. Please reach out to Yisrael Benji with any questions or concerns.

  • Volunteers- We will be needing volunteers to help set up the shul and build the Sukkah for the High Holidays.  This will be a great way to start the New Year with a Chessed. Please reach out to Faraj Benji for more information.

  • Parking- There is limited parking in the shul lot.  Please refrain from parking on the street since we would like to keep our neighbors happy. If needed, please park in the Church lot behind the Mikvah on Farview Avenue.
