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.

Dear Fellow Congregant ,

We have sent to MDA in ISRAEL over $3,300.00 along with our deep appreciation and solidarity.

Magen David Adom is always "at the ready".Whenever anyone is in need of their services; at any hour, anywhere in the country, their staff and equipment is there.

As a direct result of your continued generosity, the South Baldwin Jewish Center is supporting MDA in ISRAEL's efforts to replenish many of the supplies that ran low as a result of their non-stop efforts throughout the arson fires which tore through the country in November 2016.

We will publish a THANK-YOU letter in a forthcoming CENTERPOST.

Here are some sources for updated news from Israel which are updated throughout the 24 hour news cycle.

When we pull together, we accomplish so much.
Malka Mittelmann

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.

Malka Mittelmann
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.
