TROY–The Sunday, Sept. 8, Chill And Schmooze Lodge held at Beth Tephilah Synagogue, 82 River St., Troy will feature discussions about relating to God, and the upcoming High Holidays. A shofar demonstration and a vegan buffet are also on the agenda. Plants used on Sukkot will be reviewed.

A recent  lodge meeting highlighted the incense offering at the Temple in Jerusalem two thousand years ago. A hands on demonstration of the incense offering was presented on a life-sized model of the altar that had been constructed by  David Weinberg.

A slideshow gave those attending an idea of how the inside of the temple (where everything took place) looked.

Everyone had a chance to smell the incense as well as a chance to grind the ingredients. The spirituality of the sense of smell was discussed.

Suggested donation/admission for the next buffet and meeting is $5. Leible Morrison, organizer, at 518 -894-3490 is taking reservations and can provide information.
