Rabbi Sparr Office Hours
Rabbi Sparr will be out of the office until the beginning of the (secular) year, but is available by phone or email this week and happy to schedule a meeting on or after January 5. Feel free to e-mail her.
No Religious School during the winter break.
Send your 2016 TEMV pledges and donations to the Treasurer before the end of the month so you can claim them on your 2016 tax return.
Check out our potential Adult Ed offerings and submit your preferences. Rabbi Sparr will offer classes based on our responses.
Volunteer to Host an Oneg
If all members sign up to host then no one will have to host more than twice. It’s one simple way to help.
Saturday, January 14, 8 pm – 11 pm
The Bar Chords are returning for another dance. Music of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Everyone had a great time last year so we are doing it again.
