We have a wonderful Shabbat event planned with Habitat for Humanity on Saturday, August 11th! We're joining our services with building a house at Habitat's village in Covington. We'll start the morning at 7:45 a.m. with Shabbat services and a light breakfast at the community center there at the Habitat village. After Rabbi Nimon leads services, we'll start our building, a true "Tikkun Olam" effort. "Tikkun Olam" literally means repairing the world, a perfect metaphor for our work. Also, our youth age 16 and up can participate in the construction. Don't miss this inspirational Shabbat experience! To sign up or for more information, please contact Cheryl Klein at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Time to start planning our big Gala! Our Gala Chairman, Mark Wolfe, will hold a kick-off meeting for the Gala this Tuesday, June 5th, at 7:30 p.m. at the NJC. This is our biggest and most important fundraiser of the year, so please make every effort to attend this meeting and help make this event a huge success. The Gala will be held on November 3rd at the Castine Center. We look forward to seeing you Tuesday night!
