PLEASE NOTE: The Temple office will be closed November 24th and November 25th for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Shabbat services will be held beginning at 7:00 on Friday night. This will not only be Simchat Shabbat, where we honor those who have birthdays and anniversaries in the month of October, but we will also celebrate the Adult Bat Mitzvah of Kortney. If you are in town, this is a service you will not want to miss.
There will be no Torah Study or Religious School this weekend as we all enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend with our families.
In honor of Kortney’s Bat Mitzvah, Kortney is collecting needed items for Kitty Kottage which is dedicated to the rescue of kittens. They need clumping cat litter, kitten food, regular cat food, rice cereal for babies, and jars of baby food meat, and baby wipes. You can leave your donation on the stage, or if you wish you can make your tax deductible check payable to Kitty Kottage and send it to Tammy. They are collecting through the month of November.
Also, the Religious School is coordinating a food drive for the Backpack for Kids project. Many children in our schools go home over the weekend or vacations to empty kitchens and refrigerators. Backpacks with easy to prepare foods are provided to children so they can feed themselves. Items like granola bars, single serving microwavable meals, individual cans of fruit, individual raisen packages, individual containers of cereal. Think like a kid! The religious school will be collecting through December 18th so we can get the food to the food bank before the winter break.
Friday, December 2nd there will be a Shabbat Service and Potluck held at Fort Rucker beginning at 6:00 at the Spiritual Life Center. Please contact Nathan if you have any questions and/or wish to attend.
There will be a Shabbat Morning Service on Saturday, December 3rd beginning promptly at 9:30. It will be followed by our normal Torah Study.
On Sunday December 4th, our monthly session on Jewish identity will be a potluck and a movie beginning at 5:00. Please bring a main or side dish to share; dessert and drinks will be provided. The movie is the oldie, but goodie, Frisco Kid. There will be a short discussion at the end of the movie.
