Lee's focus is on seeking the commonalities in our spiritual struggles. Whether it be personal issues, community issues, religious issues or global issues - we are all facing similar challenges. Our response should be to unite, seek each other out and learn from each other.
Lee will be speaking on Shabbos August 8th at 5:30pm at Temple Israel – traditional Sabbath (light) meal with a focus on the intertwining nature of intrafaith and interfaith initiatives (Catered by Tova) .

Family Photos for 2016 Calendar: Back, by popular demand, is the Family Photo section.  Libi Rides will be coordinating this. Family photos of members will be carried over from last year – unless you advise Libi otherwise. 
Please make sure your family is in the CENTER of the photo. And be sure your last name and a first name is part of the file name. E.g. Rides-Libi-Family.jpg
If you would like to add, update or remove a photo please email Libi at:   Deadline: August 9th
Now that the weather is nice, we would like to remind anyone who takes their Kiddush outside to please remember to throw away your plates, cups, etc. in the trash.  We will be placing a trash can outside to help with the cleanup. Please remind your children to help keep our shul clean.
The Rabbi will be returning August 13 and is available via e-mail.  Members can also contact Roy, Naomi, and Josh or the shul office to contact him. Also, halachic issues can be brought to Rabbi Klapper.
Kiddush is co-sponsored by Debbie and Jack Schuss to commemorate the Yartzeit of Jack's father, Emanuel Schuss, Z"L and by the Blitstein family in deep appreciation of all our friends who became our family.  We are truly grateful for your friendship and support over the years.  We look forward to visiting often and hope (once we have a house!) you will come and visit us as well.
