OUR 2019 MITZVAH OF THE SUMMER
009
We will once again be collecting school supplies for Granby Elementary. They must be plain - no logos or characters on them. Please bring your donations to the synagogue office by August 26th so we have time to get everything to Granby Elementary.
This is such an important mitzvah - the principal, the staff, and more importantly, the children and their families, are so appreciative of these supplies, as many of the families don't have the funds to purchase school supplies for their children.

SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS AVAILABLE AT TEMPLE ISRAEL

There are several endowment funds at Temple Israel that are for the benefit of Jewish Education, Jewish Camping, Israel Trips and other Jewish Experiential Programs. Some of these grants are now available for any age, including adults. These funds include the Alfred and Herbert Legum Memorial Fund, the Sanford Lefcoe Scholarship Fund and the Snyder Education Fund. Needs basis is given first priority.
If interested in applying for a grant, please contact the synagogue office.
minyan

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.
wands

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.

On August 18th we will have a book burial at Forest Lawn Cemetery at 11:00am. The Rabbi will lead the burial and you can participate. There will be a breakfast beginning at 9:00 after minyan and then we will leave the synagogue and go to Forest Lawn.
