Dear Friends:   

It's hard to believe that it is July already, and we are fully into the summer season. From BBQ's to bathing suits, from sunbathing to sprinklers, everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather and sunshine. School is out, hopefully work has slowed down a bit, and it's a great time to take a break and enjoy some of the activities around Hudson County. 

Although it is a bit slower in the summer season, our local synagogues are still programming busily, with events for children, families, millennials, seniors, and everyone in between. Don't miss First Friday Potluck & Service at TBE (July 7), Hike in the Palisades with Moishe House (July 9), Adult Education at Temple Beth Am (July 11 & every Tuesday), Tot Shabbat at Monroe Center (July 13), Lunch & Learn with Rabbi Aaron Katz at CBJ (July 17), Shabbat in Church Square Park (July 21), and Tisha B'Av Evening Service with USH (July 31). All of these programs are open to the entire community, and you will surely feel welcome! 

Thank you to all those who helped to staff the HudsonJewish booth at the recent Hoboken Arts Festival. We truly enjoyed meeting those of you who stopped by to schmooze, get some information, sign up for PJ Library, or just pick up some giveaways. As always, it's a great opportunity for us to see many of you who are reading our monthly newsletter and find out what you want from our HudsonJewish community. 

Happy Summer!
