Shabbat 3/13/20

We hope you’re staying safe and calm, following recommended precautions while exercising your trust in God. 

As we continue to adjust to daily developments, and in light of UCSC’s actions and county health officials recommendations, we will not be hosting Shabbat dinner this week. 

We will have Shabbat-to-go kits available by RSVP only, available for pick up between 2:00-4:00 on Friday. Must RSVP by Friday 9:00am.


Spring Break

We will be closed.


Spring Quarter including Passover

Stay tuned…



Life is a road of opportunities. Some are identified with clear signs, others are hidden off the beaten path. As you know from adventurous travel, the latter are often the best experiences. 

When we are faced with unforeseen or uncontrollable realities around us, we must focus on finding the good. We can’t just react, we must proactively explore how this will help us grow. And we must never panic, despair or view ourselves as victims of circumstances; we must be seizers of opportunity. 

You’re schedule just took a detour. It’s time for an adventure. What does God have in store for you? What on your bucket list will you now be able to do or explore? What character trait will you exercise or refine? What topic will you delve into? Which long lost friend will you reach out to? Which Jewish experience that you've been accustomed to attending can you now produce on your own?

You’re destined for great things. 


Please reach out to Devorah Leah or Rabbi Shlomie if there is something we can help with - emotionally, spiritually or practically. 

Always looking out for #JewishSlugs,
Rabbi Shlomie & Devorah Leah Chein
