Please join our shul (and several area religious organizations) for a Special Event:
"Beaufort Unites in Solidarity: Peace and Prayer for Israel" hosted by the City of Beaufort.
Waterfront Park Pavilion (Henry Chambers Park) in #BeaufortSC
Sunday’s event in Beaufort will be the first show of public show of support for Israel in Beaufort County. This is not a protest or rally, but rather a gathering of peace and solidarity for Israel, and an opportunity for local residents to understand the conflict. Given the nature of this event, City of Police officers will secure the event.

Prayer for the Jewish New Year
May we hold lovingly in our thoughts-
those who suffer from tyranny, subjection, cruelty, and injustice,
and work every day towards the alleviation of their suffering.
May we recognize our solidarity
with the stranger, outcast, downtrodden, abused, and deprived,
that no human being be treated as "other,"
that our common humanity weaves us together
in one fabric of mutuality,
one garment of destiny.
May we pursue the Biblical prophet's vision of peace,
that we might live harmoniously with each other
and side by side,
with no one exploiting the weak,
each living without fear of the other,
each revering Divinity in every human soul.
May we struggle against institutional injustice,
free those from oppression and contempt,
act with purity of heart and mind,
despising none, defrauding none, hating none,
cherishing all, honoring every child of God, every creature of the earth.
May ...all peoples
know peace in this New Year,
And may we nurture kindness and love everywhere.
- Rabbi John Rosove (Senior Rabbi of Temple Israel of Hollywood in Los Angeles)
