Where's Weinfeld?

In this piece we will try to find Bob Weinfeld in the image.

  

Tom Thumb
 
For FIFTY years Tom Thumb...actually, Tom Thumb started in 1948 by Robert Cullum and J.R. Bost. They have been owned by Alberstons, Randalls, and now Safeway. You may also remember their Simon David Stores, and their brief venture with Walmart called Hypermart (in Garland). But to us, we just know them as "Cash." Yes, top us, Tom Thumb means money, so buy your groceries there and use out number.
 
Don't be dumb, Shop Tom Thumb.
 
Mention this number at the check-out station:
1549

PLEASE SHOP WITH YOUR T.S. TOM THUMB CARD.

Uncle Shmuel Still Needs You Every Friday!

I want you to want me

I need you to need me.

 This is no cheap trick.

Become one of the few, the proud, the Ushers!

 

USHER

Prez Sez

Fifty years! Last night was an amazing event, as we celebrated standing on the shoulders of the ones that came before us. And it was a pleasure having so many past presidents joining us. We thank the past presidents for planning last night, as well as our current leaders who came together to put on a night that we will always remember.
  
And now we begin a new chapter of service, irreverence, and fun. You can see from our calendar that we have a full spring of fun ahead of us. As for service, we also have our weekly ushering duties, and I encourage you to sign up. We distribute and collect siddurim, then we sneak over and finish off the oneg buffet. In all seriousness, our duties as ushers are not only books, but as greeters - we are the first faces greeting everyone into their evening of worship. It is a holy duty, as services inspire us when we need spirituality and comfort us when we are hurting.  So if you have not yet (or lately) had the honor of participating in this important service for the service, then sign up: USHER.
 
We're having a blood drive along with a speaker and breakfast. We're supporting the Purim Spiel by helping with food preparation. We're supporting young families by helping with the Purim Picnic and the community is invited to join in. We will be assembling the Yom HaShoah candle mailing in March 17  Brotherhood will be hosting another 2nd Night Seder and this is just the start of the next 50 years.
  
So , come join us and make memories that will last another 50 years!

WILLIAM "BILL" HOFFPAUER
 From the Borscht Belt  
  
Shlomo goes to the doctor for his physical. "For an eighty year old man, you are in remarkable shape," says his doctor, "but I want to check your sperm count. Please take this jar home with you, and return it tomorrow."
Shlomo seems nonplussed, and returns the next day, handing the doctor the jar. "It's empty? What happened?"
  
"Well," says Shlomo, "I tried with my right hand, but nothing happened. Then I tried for awhile with my left hand, but nothing happened. So my wife tried with her right hand, but nothing happened, then she tried with her left hand and nothing happened. So we asked a neighbor, who tried with her right hand and nothing happened, and her left hand, but still nothing happened."
  
"You went to YOUR NEIGHBOR?," asked the doctor.
  
"Right," said Shlomo, "and none of us could open the jar."

A very special thank you to Steve and Ann Weintraub, who went above and beyond the call of duty to pull the 50th anniversary event off, earning the shlepper of the year award!
 
If we missed your name, it was not due to a lack of gratitude, it is due to our ineptitude, for which we enjoy abundance. We thank the unthanked, the underthanked, and thankless.

MAZEL TOV

A blessing on your head, mazel tov, mazel tov, to Sisterhood's Staci Romick Mendelsohn, the first daughter of a Brotherhood President (Morry Romick in 1972) to be named Woman of Valor. Staci served Sisterhood as president and in many other capacities over the years. We at Brotherhood congratulate Staci on this auspicious honor.                             

EVEN MAZELER TOV !!
TO THE BARFS CHAMPION!!
IRWIN KAUFMAN
Yes, this Rookie K coach defeated the defending heavily favored champions. Sound familiar? Irwin was the mastermind responsible for drawing up the fourth down flea-flicker that led his beloved Philadelphia Eagles and his own team to a championship.
  
And a special mazel tov to Robert Fishkind for his work as Commissioner. As Roger Goodell can tell you, it is tough following a legend (Jason), and Robert didn't even have to suspend anyone this year.
