This month’s selection is “The Road to Character” by David Brooks. Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our “résumé virtues”-achieving wealth, fame, and status-and our “eulogy virtues,” those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed. Looking to some of the world’s greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character.


Save the Date:

The PHC annual picnic will be Sunday August 27th.

If anyone would like to help in the preparations, please contact Rachel Jakofsky.


We are pleased to announce that the Persian Hebrew Congregation will be publishing our third annual Yizkor/Hashkava Memorial Book. Again this year we will have the opportunity to honor the memory of our parents, grandparents, relatives, and friends by inscribing their names in this Book. Our Memorial Book includes both Sephardic and Ashkenazic prayers and is used in the synagogue during Yom Kippur and on the holidays of Sukkot, Pesach and Shavuot.

To participate in this mitzvah of remembrance and tzedakah, please send us the names of the loved ones you wish to memorialize. The cost is $18 for each name printed. You will be receiving an email with more details about this project and the ways in which you can submit your information.

Please note that if you submitted names last year and wish to have them included again this year, there is no need to resubmit the information as long as there are no additions or corrections. Simply send your payment to the synagogue and note “same as last year”.

For questions or more information, please see Rabbi Hamaoui or Claire Sporn.
