Beginning in September, we will meet in the Community Center Elm Room.  All Temple members are invited to join us on the third Wednesday of every month from 10-11:30 a.m. Call Lee Kobin 540-3885.

The Tea is open to all Rosh Chodesh members, but reservations are necessary.  You can also renew your Rosh Chodesh $18.00 membership at the same time. The $8 charge for the tea covers expenses. Send your checks to Sarah Moscoe at 2082 Ronda Granada, #D and join us for a wonderful afternoon of great refreshment, fantastic entertainment and lots of good company!

Name Tag VOLUNTEERS NEEDED AFTER THE HIGH HOLIDAYS! - Select one Friday to work each month (2nd or 4th). Arrive at 6:45PM and put the name tags on the table. Assist anyone who cannot find their tag by looking in the file boxes.  Leave the table when the service starts. At the end of the service, rubberband the tags alphabetically and put them in the file box.  Collect the tags that are left in the bowls after the Oneg and take those tags and one file box home and insert those tags into their alphabetical group (takes 15 min or less).  Arrange  for the next person to get the file box . If you cannot take your Friday you can trade with another person or call the substitutes.  It is not a huge time commitment. You not only help keep our congregation friendly, but you meet lots of new people!  Call JJ Hurst 949-300-7488 for questions and to volunteer.
