"People of the Book" - Summer 2019

One Book. One Community. One Summer


Join us as we read and discuss a significant book from Jewish literature. For our seventh summer, we’ll read a novel by the author of As a Driven Leaf, our first summer’s book, which imagines the story behind the provocative Biblical book of the prophet Hosea.

Sh’kheinim is the Hebrew word for “neighbors”. From time to time, instead of a sermon during Shabbat morning services, we’ll pull up a comfortable chair and spend some time getting to know a Jewish community or congregational leader, or another member of the synagogue. This month, we’ll talk to:

Hearing Loop Installed

Congregation Ohev Shalom has installed a Hearing Loop in the sanctuary and chapel.  This is to assist those with hearing loss hear more clearly during services.  A hearing Loop is an assistive listening system that transmits sound directly into one’s hearing aids or cochlear implants rather than depending on sound coming from the loudspeakers.  To receive the Loop signal and hear more clearly, you will need to manually activate your T-coil or “telephone” setting on your hearing aid or cochlear implant.  If you don’t know if you have a
T-coil or whether yours is properly programmed, consult with your audiologist or hearing aid professional.  If you don’t wear hearing aids, ask to use a Loop receiver to receive the sound.
