HJH NIZKOR and BREAK-THE-FAST POSTPONED UNTIL 5779

Due to circumstances beyond our control, (namely damage at Vi at Bentley Village caused by Hurricane Irma), the HUMANISTIC JEWISH HAVURAH announces that we have had to cancel our Nizkor ceremony and break-the-fast meal for this Jewish year of 5778.

We received an announcement that repairs at Vi at Bentley are so extensive that they expect to remain closed well beyond September 30. This information reached us so late that we were unable to secure another venue on such short notice.

The Humanistic Jewish Havurah apologizes for the inconvenience this has caused you. If you have already mailed your reservation to Maraline Rane, she will be returning your check unless you call her and ask that she destroy the check. (239) 594-5123
