Summer is a great time for Spring cleaning! Do yourself a favor and clean out your garage or attic, and donate your unwanted, gently used items to the NJC. Our Yard Sale was a great fundraiser for us last year, and we can use your help to make it a success this Summer. The more, nice items we have, the bigger the sale will be. Please call the office at 951-7976 to arrange a time to drop off your items, or to arrange for assistance in picking up your items. And please also volunteer to help work the Sale on August 5th.
Shavuot is Saturday night, May 26th. Join us for a special evening as we observe several Shavuot traditions with food and fun! Shavuot commemorates the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, so it is customary to study Torah throughout the night. While we might not stay up all night, we'll learn Torah by playing JEWPARDY!, our own Torah version of the game show Jeopardy! The sweetness of Torah is remembered by eating dairy dishes, so we'll enjoy an ice cream social. Finally, Yizkor is traditionally held on major festivals, so we'll remember our loved ones with this special service. Don't miss this important evening, starting at 7 p.m.
Join Jonathan King, Rebecca Oppenheim, Ryan Oppenheim and Caroline Santopadre, and their families, for confirmation ceremonies during our erev Shabbat services this Friday, May 18th, at 7:30 p.m. This is a special night for our students, their families and the entire Congregation. Please join us to celebrate this important event.
