TAJ E-News 2015-9-20


We are in the Days of Awe (between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur).
We will be coming together for a holy convocation
called Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) this Tuesday evening at 7:30 pm.
It is a day of fasting.

Dana Baker, cantor soloist, will be
singing Kol Nidre.

All are invited to return on Wednesday morning 10- noon
for intercessory prayer 
for Israel and the Jewish people.

We will all return for the concluding service at 5:30 pm.
We will be remembering our families that have passed.
We will also be remembering the six million Jewish people that perished 
in the Holocaust.
We will break the fast after the service.

with Hershey Bars (kosher) 

"Hersheys for Heroes"

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.
Several of us will be assembling quilts
to be given to 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.

The first meeting together will take place today, September 20th
at Corrine's home in Irvine.
 They will begin sewing the squares at this time
