Hi, everybody! Here are some quick highlights of happenings around our shul.
February 8th’s Game Night, sponsored by our Sisterhood and Men's Club, was a winner!
The following night, we hosted a very important lecture: Women at the Wall; What’s at stake for us all?
Our Chesed Committee did a phenomenal job of organizing the Mishloach Manot.
Dr. Yosef Kilimnick did a superb job reading Megillat Esther three times in about fifteen hours. On Motzei Shabbos, March 15th, there were over 200 in attendance in the sanctuary, most incognito with creative costumes. I personally enjoyed running the Haman Traffic Light for the first time. The Men’s Club sponsored a great Ice Cream Social, following the happy ending to the story of Purim.
The following morning, we had two more readings of Esther. Later that night, our Purim Seudah was fabulous. Over 125 people were in attendance. Thank you to the Sisterhood for a great evening, which featured a delicious feast, a costume contest, and the return of the band – The Vashtis. I was on the keyboard, Yosef was on drums, and Rabbi Avi had the vocals.
Don’t forget to place your orders for shmurah matzah!
I’ll see you in shul! Chag Kasher V'Sameach!
