Circle of Friends – Rosh Chodesh Tammuz

NEXT WEEK Rosh Chodesh Tammuz will be our final get together for the year.  We will be celebrating NEXT Wednesday, June 9th at 6:00 PM.  We are hoping that we can meet in the Metroparks at the Rocky River Reservation.  If the weather cooperates, we can enjoy a wonderful evening outdoors.  If the weather is fickle, we have our trusty Zoom to fall back on. Rabbi will do a short service for Rosh Chodesh. We will review our programs from this past year, and we would like you to bring ideas for the coming year.  If you can’t join us, you can send your ideas to Barbara Schwartz’s email: 

Bring your own box lunch or dinner.  

We will bring cupcakes and drinks for everyone.  

We hope to claim the covered shelter near the parking lot by the Ricky River — Look for a balloon or two to mark where we are.

Bring a folding chair, as we may wish to form a circle.  

There are restrooms nearby.

There’s parking and a scenic trail along the river.  

While we many not need our masks, please bring one to wear, as we do not know who has immunity.  

 To get to the picnic area of the Emerald Necklace Marina, it may be best to enter the park from Detroit Rd at the western end of Lakewood, across from Sloane Avenue.  There is a traffic light at the intersection and you drive down Valley Parkway into the park.  The entrance is the first entrance on the right; make a right and drive straight ahead towards the Rocky River and picnic area.  If you get lost or can’t find us, please call Barbara Schwartz:  216-973-2489. [FYI — Sections of Valley Parkway have been closed to cars to allow people to walk or bike and be socially distanced.]  Please check your email that afternoon.  Rabbi will send out an email update, especially if the weather is not cooperating, with a Zoom link.   RSVP — We would also appreciate if you would let us know if you are coming so we can plan for the desserts and drinks: It will be wonderful to see you in person or on Zoom – bringing joy and celebration to one another!                Wishes for a Chodesh Tov – a good month!  Barbara
