Welcome to the
South Baldwin Jewish Center Website

We have once again joined with the JCC in supporting the UJA drive for school supplies for needy children.  A collection box has been placed in the rear lobby for donations. At this time of year, Walgreens, CVS and Staples have sales that offer many items at very low prices.

We hope that you will avail yourself of the opportunity to contribute to this campaign.  Children all over Long Island are helped by your donations, many of whom attend Yeshivot and Day Schools and these supplies give them a step up when they start the school year.

The supplies will be collected during the week of August 10th so we hope you will contribute soon.

Thank you.

We need some help in the office.  Murray is going on vacation from August 10th through August 17th, a total of six days.  We need someone for four hours on each of the days to answer the phones between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm..   If we get enough responses, the four hours can be split between two people.

Being summertime, the phones are not  extremely busy and Murray will be calling in daily to advise on any questions that require answers. John is also very knowledgeable about most procedures so the task should not be very trying. Temple officers will also be available for advice and guidance.

We hope you will respond favorably to this request.  And the earlier you respond,  the better the chance to chose the day you wish to serve.

Folk dancing meets on Wednesdays at 10:30am and Mah Jongg on Thursday evenings at 6:45pm. Newcomers are always welcome to either group.

In last week's announcements, we invited you to join a "Walking Group" that will meet in Baldwin Park.  We need to change the days that the group will meet.  If you would like to join the group, please call Ruth Wexler, 379-3886.  Days will be determined by the participants.

If you know of anyone who may be affected by this change but does not receive e-mail, please let them know.

We welcome the members of the Baldwin Jewish Center to your new home. May the memories of your past sustain you in our future.


   This year we are going to have SBJC  Rosh Hashanah Greetings in both the Jewish Week and the Baldwin Herald.

   It will be nice to see SBJC wishing our friends and neighbors Shanah Tova, in print again. We had done this years ago, and we're doing it again. 

   We appreciate the SBJC Sisterhood for stepping up with a donation that will cover 20% of the cost of these two ads.             

   All donations are welcome, just write in the memo line of your check, R. H. GREETINGS. Murray is gladly accepting checks for this endeavor. A sincere thank you will be in the October Centerpost. 

  Look for our Rosh Hashannah Greetings,your synagogue's greetings; in the second September issue of the Jewish Week and the Baldwin Herald.

  Best wishes for a healthy and a happy 5776,

  Malka Mittelmann
  Co President SBJC
