By now you will have received a letter offering you the opportunity to add your individual remembrances. If not, copies of the letter are available at the Shabbat Service Shalom Table.

MEN WANTED for the RTLW Choir. Men who like to sing, have fun and make new friends and renew old friendships. For information call 949-707-4552, Walt.
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.
