Community Events & Programs
Movie Night at Moriah
Complex! Intelligent! Unique! T hat's Dick Adler's take on our next film selection, "Open Your Eyes," which we'll discuss on October 18th . See the film on your own; come to class for a terrific discussion. Synopsis: Handsome 25-year-old Cesar (Eduardo Noriega) had it all -- a successful career, expensive cars, a swank bachelor's pad, and an endless string of beautiful and willing women. He is then thrown into a strange psychological mystery after a car accident scars his face and lands him in prison. One critic said of the film, "A film with enough intellectual meat on its stylish bones to give more adventurous moviegoers something to chew on afterward." 
Looking forward to seeing you on October 18, 7:30 pm at Moriah.
TOV - Hurricane Harvey Relief Mission

You saw the devastation... now be part of the recovery. Tens of thousands of people have evacuated their homes and are in desperate need of assistance and emergency aid. TOV is launching a relief mission to the region to provide critical man-power to our partners on the ground,  NECHAMA – Jewish Response to Disaster .
The mission will depart from Chicago on Tuesday, October 24th in the morning and will conclude Thursday, October 26 in the evening.  All costs on the ground are covered by JUF. In addition, volunteers will receive a $100 subsidy for their airfare.
The work is physical and involves mucking and gutting of flooded homes. Please come prepared to stand for 8 hours a day. No prior experience is necessary – all training occurs on the ground by a NECHAMA professional. Volunteers must be a minimum of 14 years old, with an adult chaperone. Basic accommodations in a communal setting will be provided by Nechama.

Please note that space is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  
If you are unable to volunteer, but would like to support the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan 2017 Hurricane Relief Fund, please visit:
Thank you for your passion for  tikkun olam , repairing the world. We hope you can join us and lend our support to the battered region of Houston.

"The Hearing Loop"
Moriah has a loop system available for individuals using hearing aids, to improve communication access for our members and guests with hearing loss. To access this system, tell your audiologist or hearing instrument specialist that your synagogue is "looped" and ask if there is a t-coil in your hearing aid(s). Then make an appointment to have it activated. If your hearing aids do not have a t-coil, talk with him/her about alternate ways of accessing the loop.
