Panera FUNdraiser: Sandwiches, Salads and Soups…Oh My!

June 7, 4 to 8 p.m.

Forget cooking dinner. Go to Panera in Chelmsford instead, to dine in or take out! You’ll get a delicious meal and 20% of the tab will go to TEMV. Just print and show this flyer at the register (or show it on your phone). Some TEMV folks will enjoy dinner there together around 5. Feel free to join us–we’d love to see you! (The deal is good all day, though!)

From the Treasurer

We are now in a new Fiscal Year! It is crucial to the financial well-being and sustainability of our community that each of us commits to a designated amount the TEMV community can rely on, this year more than ever. Please consider what the right amount of financial support is for you and your family, and indicate it on the Pledge Form. Your contribution is kept confidential.

Please return the form by June 1 so we can better plan the year and anticipate our revenue. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns.

(978) 256-2855


Adult Ed

Next year’s adult education offerings will be determined soon. If you have an area of particular interest, please let Rabbi Sparr know so that it may be considered.
