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!
Parents and Grandparents:
Did you know that Scholarship Funds are available at Temple Israel that can be used for Jewish Education, Jewish camps, trips to Israel and other Jewish Experiential programs? Think:
And some of the 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 Educational Fund. Needs basis is given first priority. If interested in applying for a grant, please contact the synagogue office at 489-4550.
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.
