Emunah Happenings 
Thursday, March 16, 2017 / 18 Adar 5777
TONIGHT
This Weekend
The Religious School Committee would like to invite families to attend Shabbat services together by grade. The hope is for children to see their classmates in their dedicated service, and that families from the same grade will sit together in the Main Service and during Kiddush. This coming weekend we encourage the Kitah Gan and Kitah Dalet families to come together. Questions? Contact Kristy Pourmousa or Shaina LaFlamme.

The Temple Emunah Refugee Action Project has prioritized bringing active bystander training to Temple Emunah.  In the current climate, hateful harassment and assaults on racial and religious minorities are becoming increasingly frequent. The goal of active bystander training is to equip individuals with tools and empower them to appropriately intervene in the moment, de-escalate tensions and protect the vulnerable.

As a first step, we will be joining other faith communities at Quabbin Mediation’s Active Bystander Training workshop  on Sunday, March 26th 1:30-3:30 pm  at the South Acton Congregational Church.   Temple Emunah has been allocated 14 spaces for this workshop;  5 spaces are still available . The suggested donation is $10. For more information, or to sign up, contact Cathy Gildesgame .
Temple Emunah is starting a new Buying Club for Kosher, Organic, Grassfed Meat with the company Grow and Behold! If you would like to order meat for Passover, please email Liza Halley by April 3rd; pick up is Wednesday, April 5.
