We are writing to ask once again for your patience and support. As you were previously advised we are in the process of replacing Murray as well as in the process of changing our billing and record keeping system. During this transition we have not been able to enter the payments received to our member's accounts. The November Statements have been sent out but do not reflect the payments that have been received during the past month. Nor have the payments for October that were accumulated, been posted. We have paper records of all payments and have made the deposits but we have not been able to enter them into the electronic system while we are making this transition. We greatly appreciate your patience and assure that all accounts will be updated properly. We assure those that still have payments due that all payments received will be properly posted once we have completed the transition and appreciate your continuing to make your payments and donations.

                                         10  CHAI CHALLENGE

Dear Fellow Congregant ,

As fires continue to burn throughout Israel, we want to help.

While giving blood in one of the Magen David Adom Blood Centers in 
Israel many years ago, I had an insightful conversation with the Director
of that facility. Since that initial visit, I've kept in touch with her. Every year,
before Pesach and Rosh HaShannah; I'll  send a donation to MDA In Israel ,
along with a card and an update on our synagogue's activities to her.

This past Shabbat, I spoke in synagogue about how Magen David Adom was "on the  ground" all over the country. At that time more than 120 people had been treated for  various fire and/ or smoke health related conditions.

Next Monday I'll be sending an overnight mail to MDA In Israel from The South Baldwin Jewish Center. Anyone who wishes to add their donation to what we have already collected is welcome to join in. You can either make a check out to MDA In Israel or make a check out to South Baldwin Jewish Center and on the memo line write "for MDA In Israel".

Through the generosity of one of our families, we have the opportunity to double the value of our donations. This family will match our donations up to $1,800.00; this means that if we can collect $1,800.00 we will in effect be able to send MDA In Israel $3,600.00 next week.


               Here are some sources for updated news from Israel:





          These sources are updated throughout the 24 hour news cycle. 

Who Celebrates Next?
The Simcha Shabbat has been developing nicely.
Each month we are pleased to add more birthdays & anniversaries.
We invite everyone to join in.

If you have a birthday or an anniversary or both coming up, please send this
e-mail back to advising us of him your first and last name and the date of your birthday and/or your anniversary. Feel free to include all loved ones in the same-mail.

There will be no gifts left on your door step, we promise you that.
There will be good wishes, one round of good cheer and a cake on FRI evening that has congratulations written on it.

Co President

It is considered a great mitzvah and responsibility to honor the Sabbath by lighting candles 18 minutes before sunset on Friday evening.

This unique commandment, entrusted to the Jewish woman, is rich with meaning and purpose.
