5:30pm - Magic Show with Yarrow the Magician. Thank you Joanna Schlansky for sponsoring!
6:30-7pm - Shofar Blowing Workshop with Steve DiOrio. Learn the significance of the shofar, why we blow it on Rosh Hashanah, the symbolism of the different sounds and more. Great way to get into the spirit of the holidays.
Rosh Hashanah is just around the corner. The fundraising committee makes it easy for you to send your wishes for a Sweet New Year with High Holiday Gift Bags.
We will be giving a gift bag to every temple member family living in the area. Each bag will be filled with honey, crisp apples, High Holiday recipes, and a delicious, fresh-baked challah. Included in each gift bag will be a personalized greeting card listing the names of each person who has made a donation towards that particular gift bag.
We need your help to make our sixth annual High Holiday Gift Bag fundraiser a success. Our goal is to have 100% participation. Whether you contribute towards one gift bag to say Happy New Year to our Rabbi, donate towards bags for everyone in our community, or do something in between, we are very grateful for your support.
Ordering information will be mailed to temple members next week. If you do not receive the mailing or if you have any questions, please contact Fran.
Best wishes for a sweet and healthy new year! (I know it is still summer but the holidays will be here in just a few weeks.)

PS Do you have a special High Holiday recipe that has been in your family for generations? Or perhaps you have recently added your own contemporary twist to a traditional dish. We are looking for several recipes to include in this year’s High Holiday Gift Bag. If you have a favorite one (and if it will fit on an index card), please email it to me as soon as possible. Maybe one of your traditions will become one of ours as well. Thank you
