They will not serve pork products or catfish on the nights we will be joining them. If you wish to eat at the church before the class, let Rabbi Lynne know before the Monday before each class (Monday, November 3rd and Monday, November 17th).

Just a reminder to be careful around our construction, and to enter the building at the new handicap entrance. We cannot use the stairs until further notice.
Don’t forget our annual food drive to benefit the Wiregrass Area Food bank. You can bring food and put it on the stage, or you can write a check payable to the Wiregrass Area Food Bank. The food bank looks forward to our drive every year because they are running low on supplies at this point. Our donations are way down this year. PLEASE WRITE YOU CHECK TODAY!! We will be accepting donations until October 31st.
371 Productions will return to Dothan during the weekend of November 7th to film some more for their PBS documentary. They will be filming the Friday evening of the 7th prior to services and during the Oneg, but not during the service itself except for a brief “shot” from a tripod situated in the hallway leading to the sanctuary. There has been a letter explaining the project and a release form e-mailed to each congregant. If you do not want to be on camera, just let the director or crew know and they will try to avoid filming you; additionally the crew will not use the image of anyone who did not sign a release. If you have any questions or concerns, please be in contact with Brian Seidman, your board-appointed liaison to 371, or directly with the film’s director, Brad Lichtenstein.
