High Holidays at Beit Simcha
Join us for our High Holiday services, which start with Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah (Day of Blowing Shofars, traditional Jewish New Year) on Sunday, September 13, at 7pm and Monday September 14, 10:30am. Learn and commemorate the holiday that starts the ten day period known as the Days of Awe, where we remember God as the King who created the world, and Yeshua who will come back to judge the earth at the blast of the shofar.
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) starts on Tuesday, 7:15pm, September 22 with the Kol Nidre service, and continues on Wednesday, September 23, 10:30am. We will do t'shuvah (repent) and fast and pray for ourselves and Israel.
Our Neilah (closing the gates) service will be held at 5:30pm that evening, followed by our pot-luck break fast. Feel free to bring a Biblically kosher dish to pass!
On Sunday, 7pm, September 27 we will celebrate the start of Sukkot, the Feast of Booths. It looks back to when the Israelites wandered from Egypt to the promised land, and looks forward to the Messianic Kingdom.
The assembly of the 8th day, Shemini Atzeret, will be celebrated on Sunday at 7pm, October 4. Our commemoration of Simchat Torah (the Joy of the Torah) will happen at our regular Shabbat service at 10am on October 10.
All these services will be in our new temporary location, Trexlertown Grange at 1183 Grange Road, Wescosville. Check out our web site for a map.
Labor Day is nearly upon us! With it we kiss summer and Wellspring goodbye, and look forward to fall and celebrating the high holidays in our new location! But first, we need to get there.
So this Monday, we will be packing up and shipping out to the Trexlertown Grange at 1183 Grange Road, Wescosville. We hope you can join us and lend a hand - there will be plenty to do! We start bright and early at 9AM at Wellspring. We will pray for spiritual cleansing at the Grange at 2:30pm.
We are excited about our temporary home and the move to a temporary space seems quite appropriate as we approach the season of Sukkot. The Grange will be our Sukkah (booth) while we wait expectantly for the construction of our new, permanent Synagogue just across the street. Lord willing (and various permits and financing), we will be breaking ground next spring!
Please pray with us as we make this dramatic change. It's a large step to take and we are taking it in faith. The Lord has blessed us in many ways, and we are excited for the greater blessings He will bestow on us and our neighbors as we put our trust in Him.
Powerful Prophetic Ministry
Avi and Tzofiya Rogers of As You Go Ministries and Beth Tikkun Messianic Congregation will be visiting Beit Simcha at our Shabbat service. 10am, Sept 12, at our new location. They have extensive experience with teaching, prophecy, deliverance and community living. They will be teaching and ministering prophetically. This anointed couple made quite an impact last year, so don't miss them this time around!
Later that day at 7pm at the Rabbi's house, they will be speaking and ministering on "Transparency and Conflict Resolution", an especially important topic for those moving into the community house, but also vital to healthy congregational functioning. All are welcome!
