While the weather remains 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.
Electric Hot Plates and Hot Water Urns are now available!
Please contact Amy Fistel at 781-784-0085 or to purchase one.
Any teens who are interested in working in the shul kitchen to help set up, prepare and clean up weekly kiddushes are welcome to contact Sharon Lerner at 781-784-3498 or If you are already on the list to work, TODAH!
The safety of our members, and especially our children, is of the utmost importance. Unsupervised children playing outside of the shul pose a range of safety, security and liability concerns. If you follow the news, you know we live in a dangerous world, even here in Sharon, MA. It is our responsibility to keep our shul a safe place for everyone.
§  - The shul policy is that children are only allowed to play outside with adult supervision. Children playing outside without adult supervision will be asked to go inside.
§  - There have already been accidents caused by children playing on scooters around the shul. Therefore we ask that children, who ride scooters to shul, park their scooters at the bike rack and do not use them around the shul.
Please note that the shmirah staff must stay focused on the shul’s perimeter. They cannot be responsible for supervising children.  Thank you for helping make our shul a safer place.
The job description for the new rabbi is being sent out to the world! If you know any great candidates, please encourage them to look at the shul website. There is also a document introducing candidates to YI Sharon and to Sharon more generally. The job description and packet were the result of hard work by many people, using input from the whole community in focus groups and the survey. Special thanks to Roselyn Farren for layout, and Matt Rides for photos. (If you're reading these announcements on Thursday, The description and packet should be on the YI website by Shabbat.)
The top three rabbi candidates will be visiting on the weekends of January 2, 9, and 16. These were the only weekends available during the early winter, due to bar mitzvahs and other events. Please make an effort to be here for all three weekends, so that you can properly decide how you rank the candidates. And so that the rabbi isn't speaking to an empty shul.
SHAS and Young Israel welcome Hila Edri and Yahel Rot to the community.
Hila, the oldest of five children (three brothers and one sister) in their family, is from Modiin. For her first year in bnot sherut, Hila was a residential counselor at a beit ha-yeled (foster home for at-risk children), working with children ages 6 to 13. She enjoys dancing, reading romantic novels and mysteries, and traveling throughout Israel to explore the land and nature.
Yahel, the oldest of four children (three brothers) in their family, is from Givat Shmuel (near Bar Ilan University). Last year Yahel worked at the Har Hatzofim campus of Hadassah Hospital. She staffed the education room, provided by Israel's Ministry of Education, in which the hospitalized kids of all ages came to learn and to have fun. In her free time, Yahel enjoys arts &crafts, especially painting, reading, traveling the world, photography and learning new languages (last year she learned Italian!).
Their mutual wishes for this year are to get to know everyone in the kehillah and to learn to cook.
We have two wonderful young ladies spending the year in our Sharon community completing their second year of sherut leumi.  Our Bnot Yahel and Hila would like to get to know everyone in the Kehillah.  They are available to join your family for Friday night or Shabbat lunch or the upcoming holidays.
Currently we  are looking for hosts to host the Bnot for Shabbat, Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot.  Please contact me for available dates.
Please help them feel welcomed by including them at your Shabbat or Yom Tov table. Thank you in advance for volunteering to host.
