With a presence in Lancaster for over 100 years, Congregation Degel Israel is an enduring part of Lancaster’s history. Under the leadership of Rabbi Shaya Sackett, Degel Israel’s experienced and caring spiritual leader since 1992, the synagogue has grown to be Lancaster’s foundation for Jewish continuity as it services all life-cycle events and provides enriching social and educational programs.
As we approach the dog days of summer and the beginning of fall, we experience the end of the Jewish year and the dawn of a new year. We, at Degel Israel, will host many visitors from many other Orthodox communities in the northeast. We enjoy the experience as the Minyanim are full of people using our Shul as it was meant to be used.
On behalf of Co-President Fred Singer and the board members of Degel Israel, we wish you a Happy and Healthy, Sweet New Year.
Ronnie Berman, Co-President
