Upcoming: School of Jewish Studies, Shabbat Family Programming and Ark Donations
Please be sure to check out the message that I sent to the entire Am Yisrael community regarding Shabbat Family Programming (SFP) taking place on Fri, Nov 4 @ 6 p.m. It includes the necessary details for this upcoming Shabbat experience. Promotion for our first SFP of this academic year will continue to be found throughout the upcoming week on my Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn feeds. In addition, this week we have our regularly scheduled SJS sessions taking place, the Zayin Brunch and Family Education with Rabbi Newman Kamin and the Pardes Class will be going on a field trip with Cantor Simon (after he leads our congregational service and music classes) to view the movie, Denial, in lieu of their regular Sunday morning SJS class this week.
FINAL REMINDER: Donations to the Ark*: We have collected several items in the bin that will remain in our parking lot for the next week and a half or so. We hope that everyone in our Am Yisrael community will contribute items and place them in this bin to help us feed and provide supplies to those within our greater local community who will benefit from this mitzvah of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).
The Ark has listed items that may be helpful for us as we gather our donation items:
