Dear Friends:   

Summer is finally here! I'm sure that all of us are enjoying the warm weather, longer days, and of course summer fun (think ice cream, popsicles, sprinklers...). It's a great time to enjoy friends and family, and to reconnect with your local synagogue. Whether you attend weekly services or haven't been there in a while, summer is an important time to attend an event, program, or services given that many people are away and it's always nice to see as many friendly faces as possible. 

There are many wonderful events coming up in the next 6 weeks, including; Exploring Judaism series at United Synagogue of Hoboken (USH), Top Ten Plus Cheesecake Bake-Off at Temple Beth-El (TBE), Celebrate the Holiday of Shavuot! Torah Topics with Cong. B'nai Jacob (CBJ), Shabbat in the Park with USH, Backyard Shabbat for Young Families at TBE, and Rabbi Dubrow's Farewell Shabbat with Friday Night Live! & Family Fun at CBJ. 

Finally, we are sorry to have missed seeing everyone at the Hoboken Arts Festival, as it was canceled due to rainy weather. As the new date conflicts with Shavuot, we will not be hosting a booth on the rescheduled date. However, we hope to see everyone at the Fall Festival in September. In the meantime, if you would like information about receiving free Jewish books for your children ages 6 months-8 years, please feel free to go to  for more information and to sign up. 

Enjoy the sunshine!

The HudsonJewish JBN meetings are currently on hiatus while we seek a new liaison to help head this program, with the support of HudsonJewish. The group meets monthly in the morning in Jersey City, and provides an opportunity for business leaders and professionals to make meaningful contacts with high-impact networking and referrals to help grow your business. Business card exchange and discussion of haves/needs in your business.
