Our morning 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. 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.

Rabbi Panitz will have regular office hours on Tuesdays from 9:15am until noon.

summer fun events
We are looking for ushers and greeters for the High Holidays. The shifts are about an hour an a half and you would be doing a great mitzvah when it is most needed. We will be having a meeting on Sunday, August 26th at 9:00am, right after minyan.

There will be bagels and coffee and we will discuss what your duties will be. If you would like to help, please call the office at 489-4550, and then we'll see you on August 26th! We thank you in advance for your help during the holidays.

Have you moved? Changed your phone number? Or maybe changed your email address? If so, please call the office so we can change it in the computer.

Due to Labor Day Weekend parking restrictions, Temple Emanuel will have volunteers on hand to provide parking permits to all guests. There will also be two (2) police officers present to allow parking in the 25th Street median. This should allow for ample, easy and worry-free street parking.

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.

MITZVAH OF THE YEAR

The Salvation Army needs the community's help for their new 'Diaper Pantry'

The Salvation Army is creating a "diaper pantry" to help families with young children. Diapers are one of the most expensive items families need to purchase, so we are helping them fill their "diaper pantry" by collecting here at Temple Israel. So, the next time you're at the store, pick up a package of diapers and drop it at the synagogue office. You will be helping struggling families who are just trying to make ends meet.

As always, thank you for your generosity and kindness.

AmazonSmile and Temple Israel

What is AmazonSmile? - an easy way for you to support Temple Israel every time you shop, at no cost to you! When you log on to https://smile.amazon.com you will find the exact same low prices, selection, and convenience of shopping at Amazon.com - with the bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase to Temple Israel.

Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile? YES!! You use the same account. Your shopping cart, wish lists, wedding registry and other account settings will all be the same.

How do I select Temple Israel as my charity of choice on AmazonSmile? On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon remembers your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at AmazonSmile will result in a donation. If you use this link, it will take you directly to Temple Israel so you won't have to search through all the charitable organizations.
https://smile.amazon.com/ch/54-0563380

How much of my purchase does Amazon donate? The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping and handling, gift wrapping fees, taxes or service charges. While this may sound small, with over 300 families receiving this email, the amount could really add up!

Finally, How do I shop at AmazonSmile? Simply to go smile.amazon.com from your web browser or mobile device. It's that simple! Make sure to bookmark the link so it's even easier for you to return to the website and begin shopping.

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.
