High Holiday Schedule

We announce the new year 5772 with a blast from the ram’s horn on Thursday, 29 September.  As we begin our 116th year in Carnegie, we look back at the many blessings we have.  With all the turmoil in the world and a bleak economy here at home, our shul continues on.  It is as it should be.  Our lives are a continuous series of changes.  Family members are born; others pass away.  People lose jobs, find new ones, or retire.  Some go to war; most come home safe.  Some move to other cities or states and we hardly hear from them.  Marriages, divorces, accidents, illness— today is different than yesterday, and tomorrow will be different still.  But we always expect that come Rosh Hashanah we can show up at the shul in Carnegie for services and the doors will be open.  We not only believe that some things are unchanging, we NEED for some things to be unchanging.  Especially for those who only come 2 or 3 days a year, there is a certain serenity that comes with returning to a place that seems to have always been here.  But of course, the shul hasn’t always been here.  In 2012 we will celebrate the 75th birthday our current building.  The only person that I know who remembers the old shul on Broadway is Roselle Roth, sister of our beloved Nusi, may he rest in peace.  She recalls attending services as a child in the simple frame building that had a balcony for the women.  That shul was destroyed in a fire in 1934 and our new building was completed 3 years later.  So, for most of us, our current shul building has always been here.  I would like to think that it will continue to be here indefinitely.  That is up to you.
