Very soon we will begin the journey into Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Tonight at sundown we will stand and pray for ourselves, our families, our community and our future. Tonight we will begin a 26 hour fast. Tonight we will attempt to atone for what we have done be it overt or covert that failed to please G-d and our fellowman.
There is another tradition that takes place today, before sundown, and that is the tradition of Tzedakah or charity. Giving to a cause that is dear. There are many causes that you can support in Mason City or elsewhere. We hope that you will take this opportunity and write a check. The time is now.
If one of those causes is the future of Adas Israel we would hope you might remember us as well. This is one of only ten Jewish Congregations in all of Iowa and the fact it is located in Mason City is quite remarkable. You can help us carry on the tradition of learning and doing our part to bring a different, but original, voice to our community through your gift. If you are so moved take a moment and involve yourself with the tradition of Tzedakah.
We thank you in advance and wish you a Blessed New Year. La Shana Tova!
