Mitzvah Day
Sunday, April 27, 2014
 

Our annual Mitzvah Day is coming up fast. This is our big Spring “fix it up” day at the Temple, so please bring tools.  Additionally, we will be preparing materials for  charitable organizations at these four stations:

  • We will once again be collecting toiletry items, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and underwear for the teens at Urban Peak.  
  • We will be making lunches for the Dolores Project. We will need bread, peanut butter, boxed drinks, energy or fiber bars, apples or tangerines. 
  • We will bag rice and others yummies for the Weinberg Kosher Pantry.
  • We will be decorating bags for Angel HEART, a group that delivers meals to those who are critically ill.

Also, this is the deadline for getting your orders in to Michelle for the Springtime Fundraiser, Flower Power.  This is a fabulous company that sells flowers, bulbs, and fruits -- all top quality and reasonably priced.  The plants are shipped directly to the customers and so make a wonderful springtime gift for family and friends.

Get together in order to give back.

Intermediate Level -- Taught by Sophie at the Temple on Wednesdays from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM. The class reads through prayers. The schedule usually matches the Hebrew School schedule, although different arrangements are occasionally made, so please keep in touch with Sophie.

10 Minutes of Torah

Who among us is so busy that he or she cannot spend 10 minutes a day in the study of a Jewish text? Just 10 minutes? Such a commitment would enable us to meet our Jewish obligation to make Jewish study a fixed occurrence. We make time to answer our cell phones a dozen times a day and to check our email five times an hour...

... surely we can find 10 minutes to contemplate sacred words that nourish the soul.
