Dear TOS family,
I hope this finds all of you doing well during this cool winter season. You can see from all the emails you’ve been receiving that everyone’s been very busy. The education committee, chaired by Helene Stoller and Arline Rosen have very interesting discussions coming up. Thanks to those who are making the presentations. The Movie Club started again in January, thanks to Larry Rosendorf. We are scheduling movies for the 2nd Sunday in the month of February through April at 2 PM in the Fellowship Hall.
We are hosting more social events to try to reconnect us all after the two years of Covid. We already had a Chanukah Party, which was a big success. In March, we’re having a “Pizza for Purim” Party at the Fellowship Hall on Saturday evening, March 23rd at 5:30 PM. We will begin with a short Havdalah service and then celebrate Purim. You’ve already received a flyer about this event. We look forward to seeing many of you there. It’s only $10.00 per person!
Our next big event is our Annual Second Night Seder on Tuesday night, April 23rd. Ruth Moroknek and her team have been working hard on this, tasting food to make sure it meets expectations. It will be held at the Riverbend Lodge in Riverbend. A “save the date” notice has gone out. Watch your calendars for further notices.
Instead of a Shabbat service in April we will be doing something we’ve never done before. We will have a “First Day Festival Service” on Wednesday morning, April 24th at 10:30 AM. Rabbi Kanter will be here for both the Seder and this service. Some of you have been asking for a morning service, so here is one opportunity to do so. Mark your calendars now!
We continue to look for a volunteer to assist Rhoda Rubin in her position as Temple Administrator. We are willing to train someone. As you know, Rhoda’s been ill and unable to keep up right now. Please call me if you would like to know more.
The Nominating Committee, chaired by Barry Zweiban, will start working on the slate of Officers for the fiscal year 2024-25. Please contact Barry if you are willing to join the team!
