Monday, August 21 is the date of the Total Solar Eclipse coming to the USA. The total eclipse will only be visible in a narrow band from the northwest to the southeast, (where the full shadow of the moon hits the earth) but we can enjoy it vicariously through the several shul members who are traveling to view it. However, a 70% partial eclipse will be visible in New Haven. Make sure to view it only through certified eclipse glasses or through a pinhole camera (https://tinyurl.com/y86bmb6v)
