Congregation Albert, Congregation B'nai Israel, Congregation Nahalat Shalom, and the Jewish Family Service of New Mexico (JFS) are partnering to bring you high quality transportation to Rabbi Rosenfeld's Installation Service.

You must pre-register for the Shul Shuttle by December 6, 2011
To pre-register, call JFS at (505) 291-1818

Please register soon. Space is limited, and Shul Shuttle rides will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis!  A $10.00 donation will be requested, and is payable at the time of the ride.

Important!  To help make sure the welcome for Rabbi Rosenfeld is community-wide, both Congregation B'nai Israel and Congregation Nahalat Shalom have canceled that evening's Erev Shabbat services.  Everyone to Congregation Albert on Friday the 9th!
