Attendees at Rosh Hashana were: Shelley Goul & Jena, Jeff Lubman, Susan Margolin, Joshua Mendelsohn, Steven Merkin, David Rosenbaum, Hetty Rothenberg & Justin, Ira Rothenberg, Amy Sladek & Aaron & Sharon & David Soudakoff and Joshua.

Rosh Hashana services started at 9:30 a.m. after gathering at 9 a.m. with kosher Dunkin Donuts and drinks. We used the Artscroll Machzor Sharon gave a sermon on Numbers. Here is a reprint of the presentation:
