Temple Israel of Putnam Valley (Lake Drive, Lake Peekskill) is inaugurating a new program of “synagogue skills” learning. Rather than conduct a normal Shabbat service, we will be gathering together to study and learn for an hour or so. What we hope to do is to explore, in a relaxed and informal format, a series of key prayers and rituals that take place in synagogues around the world during Shabbat services. Our hope is that those who attend will find that they will become more comfortable with the content of the service.
This program is especially designed for anyone who is interested in learning more about what all these prayers and rituals mean but was afraid to ask! EVERYONE IS CORDIALLY INVITED.
These informal “shul” sessions will take place on the 2nd & 4th Shabbat each month until further notice.
Regular Shabbat Services are held the 1st & 3rd Saturday each month at 9:30 am
Services are held in the Temple Sanctuary, Lake Shore Dr. in Lake Peekskill

Putnam Valley Historical Society Museum
Our new exhibit will open in May 2, 2015: The Early Native American People of Putnam Valley
A little preview:
Before the Europeans came, the people who lived in this area belonged to the Canopus group of the Nochpeem band of the “Wappinger Indian Confederacy”. As part of the Mohican nation, they spoke the Algonkian language.
In 1600 an estimated 4,700 members of this confederacy ranged over an area that spread from Manhattan to Poughkeepsie, along the Hudson River and extending eastward toward Connecticut.
The footpaths made by the Native Americans usually followed the stream valleys. The first settlers followed these footpaths and in the course of time, they became the roads we know today as Peekskill Hollow, Canopus Hollow and Oscawana Lake roads.
The next meeting of the Historical Society Board will take place
Tuesday, April 7th at 5:30 pm - hopefully at the Museum!
Peekskill Hollow Road at Church Road (Adams Corners)
