Bulletin Board NASSAU SYNAGOGUE CELEBRATING NEW YEAR OF THE TREES (Tu B’Shvat) During the month of January, 2013, the city of Jerusalem received 4-6 inches of snow, a precipitation they rarely ever experience. This is ironic, as according to the Jewish calendar on the 15th day of Shvat or January 26, Israel will be celebrating the New Year of the Trees, Tu B’Shvat which inaugurates the beginning of spring. The Nassau Synagogue, located on Route 20 in Nassau, will also be celebrating Tu B’Shvat this year on Monday, January 28, from 6:00-7:30 p.m.  The program will feature a special movie about the land of Israel.  After the film, the Nassau Synagogue Hebrew School will do a presentation about the many fruits of Israel including grapes, pomegranate, dates, figs, olives and almonds followed by the sampling of all the above at a Tu B’Shvat seder. The 4th-6th grade class will discuss the exciting developments taking place in the Negev of Israel under the auspices of the Jewish National Fund.  We will also be planting parsley which will be ready to be used for the upcoming Passover holiday. There is a fee of $3 per person for this program.  For further information, call Lynn Gross, Outreach Coordinator at 732-4037. This program is supported by the Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York.

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD UPON US When Jesus came to Nazareth, the town about 9 miles South of Cana of Galilee, where he had attended a wedding, he was handed a scroll and he began to read and interpret the faith of Israel, that faith into which he was born and within which he was raised.  He began preaching.  He initiated God’s promised revolution with the words “Today, this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing,” Luke 4:14-21.  Join us and come to more fully understand how, even today, this Sunday, right here in our churches, the revolution continues.  Come to understand more fully what Peter meant as he referred to a passage from the prophet Joel, where God says:  “I will pour out my spirit on all flesh; your sons and our daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.  Come join us and see how all this points to “The Spirit of the Lord Upon Us.”      The Nassau Reformed Church begins worship at 11 a.m. in its chapel on the second level of its ChurchSchool-Building, 43 Church Street (Rte 20) in the village of Nassau.
