Let’s Meet Rabbi Events

Dear Congregants,
With only 14 days to go until Rabbi Jeffrey Arnowitz’s first day as Senior Rabbi of Westchester Jewish Center (August 1), the Rabbinic Transition Committee wanted to bundle together the many opportunities to meet Rabbi Arnowitz over the first two months of his tenure. As you will see, a number of those events will also include opportunities to meet Tami Arnowitz. 
Rabbi Arnowitz has a goal of meeting as many of us as possible in the lead-up to the High Holidays, and it is our hope that we as a congregation will help him meet that objective—and we’ve worked closely with him to schedule a range of opportunities. 

Religious Services

Beginning Friday, August 2, Rabbi Arnowitz will be leading Shabbat services on Friday nights and Saturday mornings. There will be opportunities to chat with him during kiddush, and to see him in our more relaxed, summer davening format. You will also be able to catch Rabbi Arnowitz at our regular minyans (7:00am and 7:30pm on weekdays; 8:30am and 7:30pm on Sundays.)

Parlor Meetings

These are days of transition and renewal at WJC, and we look forward to all congregants being a part of this process.
