NAME TAGS ARE COMING FEBRUARY 12TH!!
Our Temple is joining so many others in Orange County in having name tags!! This will help us become an even friendlier congregation! Everyone enjoys being addressed by their name, and now we'll be able to do this without the stress and strain of remembering.
Please look for your name tag on tables on each side of the front main door. When returning the tag (or if you take it home, put it in your car's glove box) wind up the string and stuff it into the tag and leave the tag in a bowl in the Oneg room.
