This Friday we will be celebrating Simchat Torah, the last of our High Holy Day festivals. We will read from the end of Deuteronomy and begin again at the beginning of Genesis. We will also consecrate two new religious school students, and there will be a special Oneg. Torah study will meet this week beginning at 10:45 on Saturday. We will resume our careful study of the book of Genesis along with Midrash.
Religious School classes will meet this Sunday beginning at 10:00.
This week ends our food drive. We will be delivering the food and checks to the Wiregrass Food Bank early next week. Those of you who have procrastinated, here is your last chance!
Mitzvah Misfits will resume league play on Saturday October 17th beginning at 5:00. Please contact Lisa or Kenny Priddle if you would like to join the league. You do not have to be a good bowler; just be willing to have fun while you are supporting the temple.
All temple members are invited to a Sisterhood Soup and Salad dinner sponsored by our Temple Emanu-el Sisterhood. It will be held on Friday, October 23rd beginning at 6:00 prior to services. Just to be clear, this is NOT a potluck, it is a Sisterhood gift to the congregation. If you wish to attend, PLEASE MAKE RESERVATIONS by calling the office before Friday, October 16th to let the Sisterhood know how many adults and how many children will be attending. Sisterhood needs to know how many places to set, and more importantly, how much food to prepare.
Temple Emanu-El Sisterhood is sponsoring our first social action project of the year! Brought back by popular demand, our next Empty Bowls project is scheduled for Monday November 16th at 6:00 p.m. at the Cultural Arts Center. Feel free to bring your favorite snacks and drinks for the social hour prior to the making of the pottery bowls. There will be a small donation collected to cover the cost of the materials for making the bowls. This program is designed to support local programs that feed the poor. We have a lot of fun doing this project each year and there were many requests to continue this project again this year. Please RSVP to the Temple office by November 9th.
We have experienced significant problems with our internet and phone service this past week and apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused. Hopefully the problem has been resolved.
