Others wanted to have an early ser- vice so they could relax over Shabbat dinner and not have to hurry to leave the house for later Shabbat services. "We anticipate that many of congregants with children will come to the early Shabbat service and then go home and have dinner with their fami- lies," said COS president Dr. Jeffrey Bornstein. The early service is not the only addition to COS' Shabbat. Using the internet, the COS rabbis have added an interac- tive component to the late Fri- day night service at 8:15p.m. The theme for this interactive study session will be "Tlae Sayings of the Fathers and Their Descendants." In the week prior to each study of a particular mishna (a Rab- binic statement), the rabbis will send a quote from Pirke Avot (Sayings of the Fathers) to enrolled congregants by e- mail and request comments, reflections, and reactions to the text. The ancient text, together with its Internet "modern commentators," as well as classical commentary, will be reviewed at the following Fri- day late service. Congregants who do not have e-mail will be able to send their reflec- tions to the synagogue by mail or fax. The congregation's lead- ers say, "Congregation Ohev Shalom continues to provide more options for participation in and observance of Shabbat. With hectic weeks behind us and constantly ahead of us, COS continues to look for innovative ways to meet the needs of congregants and unaffiliated members of the community." For information about membership at Congrega- tion Ohev Shalom, visit on the Internet, or call 407- 298-4650.
