The Conservative Movement comes together to learn, sing, and connect as a community. Over 60 rabbis and cantors will present, and a variety of Selihot services will be offered throughout the evening. This event is sponsored by the Conservative Movement High Holiday Task Force, a partnership among the Cantors Assembly, Jewish Educators Assembly, North American Association of Synagogue Executives, the Rabbinical Assembly, and USCJ. This program is free and open to all.

In order to prevent any disruption or harassment on Zoom, every individual who would like to participate in Selihot Night Live must register. We have 3 Zoom rooms and 2 YouTube channels - all at the same time. The Zoom rooms will have a large capacity but at times might be full, in which case, the YouTube channels will always be available.

Every individual who registers will receive an email on Friday, September 11, with an up-to-date schedule and links for our 3 Zoom rooms AND our 2 live stream YouTube channels, as well as links to text sheets and services.

Registration will close on Thursday, September 10. After that time, those who have not registered will be able to watch a portion of the programming on our YouTube channels. For safety and security reasons, we ask that no one share the links.

PLEASE continue to mail in your dues payments. Even though our staff is not in the building for 8 hours a day each week, the building has not been shut down - it is still using the utilities and we still have bills. Your dues payments allow us to continue to be able to pay our employees who are still working remotely and pay our everyday bills.
Thank you!
Please remember to contact the office if you change your phone number, drop your land line, change your email address, or move.
Thank you!

Please remember to fill your tzedakah boxes at home while we are not having minyan services in the building. Once we come back into the building, you can bring the money you collected and we will apply it towards our minyan fund. Or, you can send a check in and specify it's for the minyan fund. The money that is collected during our minyan services is donated to many needy causes. Now, more than ever, there is a huge need for donations to these causes. Please remember there are people who are going hungry and have lost their jobs because of this coronavirus and they need our help.

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 call Norman Soroko at (757)641-3445.

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.

For $18.00, you can plant a tree in Israel
IN HONOR of a family member, friend, group or event
OR
IN MEMORY of a family member or friend

Make your check payable to Temple Israel with a note that it is for the JNF Tree Center and who/what it is IN HONOR of or IN MEMORY of. If you go to their website, www.jnf.org/jnf-tree-planting-center, you can select a certificate/tree location. If you would like a specific certificate or location, let us know when you send in your check. We will send JNF everyone's requests.

For something completely different, you can plant a grapevine for someone, just as you would plant a tree.

Plant a tree

Plant a vine in Israel.

Do good today!

Wine on the Vine (WOTV) is an exciting new way to:

Give to truly remarkable charities in Israel
Assist the rebirth of Israel’s ancient winemaking tradition
Organically and physically connect to the Land of Israel
Support Israel’s cultural outreach to the world

All contributions are tax-deductible for US tax-payers.
