NOVEMBER MITZVAH OF THE MONTH
Once again, Jewish Family Services of Tidewater is sponsoring a Chanukah Gift Program, which provides holiday gifts to local Jewish children and teens in need. The first night of Chanukah this year is December 22nd. JFS expects to serve more than 70 local children and teens this year. For donors, this is an opportunity to do a mitzvah for children whose families are financially struggling.
We will have a list of the families that have been assigned to us after November 10th and we will send out an email letting you know what they will need. Please be on the lookout for this email and help these children have a wonderful Chanukah by purchasing the items on the list.
We appreciate everything you do to help these families in need!

Our morning minyan and Friday night minyan could use your help!
A number of our regulars are unable to attend due to illness, and some mornings we are not able to make 10 people. It's particularly important on Mondays and Thursdays when we read Torah, but there are people every day who need to say kaddish. We have also had a problem for the past couple of weeks making a minyan on Friday evenings. Please look at your schedule and pick one morning a week to come to our 7:30am minyan - it's only 30 - 60 minutes and you will be doing a mitzvah by allowing people the opportunity to say kaddish for a loved one. If you can't make the morning minyan, please come on a Friday evening at 5:30.

If you would like to be a shomer, please give the office a call so we can add you to the list. Shomrim sit with a deceased after they have been shrouded and before the funeral so that they are never alone. If you would like more information, please give the office a call at 489-4550.
LADIES, PLEASE DON'T THROW AWAY YOUR OLD MASCARA - BRING IT TO OUR OFFICE SO WE CAN CLEAN THE BRUSHES AND PASS IT ALONG TO THE WILDLIFE REHABILITATOR WHO WILL USE THEM TO CLEAN THE BABY ANIMALS SHE GETS. SHE CAN ALSO USE PUPPY PIDDLE PADS AND 75 WATT INFRARED LIGHT BULBS.
WE WILL COLLECT THESE ITEMS ALL YEAR, SO PLEASE DROP THEM OFF AT THE OFFICE.
The next time you're at the synagogue, be sure to look at our Pet Memorial Board.
It's located on the stair wall as you go up to Brody Auditorium.
It's a wonderful way to remember your beloved pet.
The Men's Chevra Kaddisha is looking for volunteers.
Participating on the Chevra Kaddisha is the highest form of a mitzvah you can perform. You are the last contact the deceased has before the funeral and you are the one who ensures they have a proper Jewish burial. It is one of the most rewarding acts you will ever do. If you are interested, or have questions, please contact Larry Stein.
If you haven't been in our gift shop in a while, do yourself a favor and stop by. We have so many beautiful items that are just waiting for a new home. Do you need a gift for someone, or maybe just a treat for yourself? Come check out what your Temple Israel gift shop has to offer.
We accept donations for our L'Dor v'Dor section of the gift shop all year long. Please consider any of the following items:
Seder and Matzah Plates
Graggers for Purim
Jewish-themed Children's Books
If your item(s) has a special history or meaning attached to it, please write down the information and turn it into the office with your "treasure". We would love to be able to share its story!
All items donated are tax deductible.
