Presidents' Blog No. 3: April 2017

Time sure does fly. It seems like yesterday that we were talking about doing a blog and here we are doing our third one.

You should all have received your Yom Hashoah candles. We hope you put your candle in the window and joined us sharing the message...NEVER FORGET.

On May 2, 2017 Merrick Jewish Centre will be having a Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration beginning at 6:00pm. Yom Ha’atzmaut is Israeli Independence Day so come join with the local temples and celebrate Israel’s Independence. We look forward to seeing you all for this fun filled celebration for all ages!

For those of you who may not be aware, we are planning our Temple Garage Sale on May 21, 2017. We are looking for your lightly used giveaways to sell!! Once we have your items, we would love to have you join us at the event. The day should be fun, including the sale of all donated items, as well as vendors selling new items, an ice cream truck and a food cart to be determined. All of this while raising money for the temple! Please come join us…sell, buy…just enjoy the day. Come one, come all!

Furthering our goal to enhance the community feeling here at Temple Beth Am, we are looking to find out more about you and what is happening in your lives and the lives of your family. Please send us your good and welfare…where is your child going to college next year, have you had a baby, a grandchild, someone getting married…please let us know so we can share it with your Temple Beth Am family. Just email it to presidents@templebethammerrick.org.

Also, we would love to know more about the mitzvah projects of our Bar and Bat Mitzvah children. Let’s not limit it to the Hebrew School…let’s have the entire Congregation take part. Again, please email us that information to presidents@templebethammerrick.org.
