We are very excited to announce that through the generosity of one of our member families, we will be introducing a new Shabbat siddur, Siddur Lev Shalem. The new Siddur will include transliterations of all the prayers, as well as readings in English and insightful commentary.
We are offering the opportunity to donate book plates in the new siddurim which will be in our Sanctuary for all to use. Books can be dedicated in memory of a loved one, or in someone's honor and may or may not include the donor's name. The cost is $54 per book plate. If you are interested in dedicating a siddur, send an email to Nancy by clicking here.
A few years ago, Cantor Simon was involved in arranging networking meetings which included congregants and others from the community who were either seeking employment, looking to hire or looking to enhance their businesses by interacting with others. Eventually the interest in the meetings began to wane as the economy improved and people found work. Lately, however, some congregants asked me for help finding a job. Since networking was effective before, there is no reason it should not work again.
There will be a networking meeting on Tues. Feb. 23 at 7:00 p.m. in the library, lower level of our school building. Please contact Cantor Simon for more information or to RSVP.
Rabbi Newman Kamin recently offered an online class on "Tu B'Shevat and the Jewish Views on Protecting the Environment". The class was recorded and is available for viewing by clicking on the above video.
Birthright Israel is a unique, historical partnership between the people of Israel through their government, local Jewish communities (North American Jewish Federations; Keren Hayesod; and The Jewish Agency for Israel), and leading Jewish philanthropists. Birthright Israel provides a gift of peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26.

Shabbat Morning Family Programming (SMFP) is a golden opportunity for all of the children within our congregational family to spend time together. Am Yisrael School of Jewish Studies (SJS) and Day School students will all find this incredibly meaningful. Click here for more info
Writing your memoirs is a gift you leave your children and grandchildren, but it's tough to go it alone.
Our member, Lois Glick will be leading a workshop on writing memoirs. Participants will be asked to write a one to two page memoir and bring it to each class. The stories will be shared orally with other participants and feedback will be given. The class will meet on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. until 12 noon starting March 2 and is limited to twelve participants. For more information, contact Lois at email@example.com
The Rabbinical Assembly recently sponsored a conference to celebrate women in the rabbinate. Of course, Rabbi Newman Kamin figured prominently in the festivities. She is one of a very few women rabbis to serve as pulpit rabbis, and has certainly achieved high status by virtue of being at one synagogue for such a long time. Am Yisrael and our Rabbi continue to be legendary in the Conservative Movement! Click here to listen to Rabbi Newman Kamin's opening remarks at the conference.
