I’m excited to be back in Kona this month and once again have the opportunity to lead services. I welcome you to join us at 10:30am on December 24 at Kona Beth Shalom’s new home in the Shops at Mauna Lani. The parsha is Vayeshev (Genesis 37:1 – 40:23), the story of Joseph being sold into captivity in Egypt. Vic Greenspan and Aviva Plaut will join me in reading from the Torah. Alice Bratton and I are sponsoring the oneg. Alice is preparing a variety of treats, but we would welcome additional salads and fruit. I very much look forward to being able to daven with you soon.
