Yom Teruah (The Day of the Sounding of the Shofar).
It is the first of the Fall Moedim (Feast).
We will meet on Sunday Evening (tonight) , September 13th at 7:30 pm.
HaShem has called us according to Leviticus 23 
to assemble together as a holy convocation.
We are commanded to hear the sounding of the Shofar.
Let us wake up from our slumber,
and Return to the Lord! (Teshuvah)

Dana Baker, cantor soloist, will be
singing a special rendition of Avinu Malkeinu.

L'shana Tovah to all of you!  5776
May you have a good and sweet year.
May we come to Him with pure hearts and clean hands.

Yasher Koach to all those 
who were immersed
at Mother's Beach
What a blessed way to begin the Season of the Fall moedim.

Special notes:  Our two Bar and Bat Mitzvah candidates
were also immersed and not coerced yesterday.

Lupe Pruneda has been coordinating this 'sweet' ministry.
We will be wrapping the chocolate bars with personalized and decorated letters to the soldiers.
Lupe has informed me that TAJ has provided enough money to buy 360 Bars...which has exceeded the goal Lupe set of 300!

Lupe will be coordinating a time to personalize the notes.
Even our children, with Renee's help, will be in on this.

Lupe will then have it shipped to Israel.
We are starting a group called "Jewish Quilt".
We will be coming together to make quilts for the 
Israeli Holocaust survivors.
There are 170,000 Holocaust survivors in Israel.
30 % of them are living below the poverty level.
They are dying at a rate of 1000 a month.
We will be partnering with ISRAEL FOOD OUTREACH!

Karen Farley will be heading this ministry.
We need man and woman power.
We will need materials.
If you have the materials, please let me know.
