Jewish Congregation to Host Summer Picnic and Holocaust Torah Dedication

Gishrei Shalom Jewish Congregation will host its annual community-wide summer picnic on Sunday, August 21st at Rec Park in Plantsville. This social event is an opportunity for individuals and families interested in learning more about the congregation to meet members in a relaxed setting and learn more about the community.

Gishrei Shalom holds services twice a month in the small sanctuary of the First Congregational Church of Southington, on the town green. The congregation’s Rabbi, Shelley Kovar Becker, leads services and study groups, oversees b’nai mitzvah preparation, officiates life cycle events and represents the congregation in interfaith programming.

Although small, the congregation has taken on large responsibilities including becoming guardians and restorers of a saved Holocaust Torah which dates from the seventeenth century. A ceremony will be held on Sunday, September 18th to celebrate the dedication of this very special scroll at the conclusion of the restoration project.

Please RSVP to president@gsjc.org if you plan to attend the picnic. For directions to the picnic, information about the Holocaust Torah project and general information about the congregation, visit their website at www.gsjc.org or their Facebook page at Gishrei Shalom Jewish Congregation.
