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.
