Beth El Beautification Day
August 7th, 9am-12noon

Roll up your sleeves and join us as we come together to prepare Beth El for our Open House and first day of school. We are looking for at least 20 volunteers to help with planting, weeding, sweeping, and general cleaning. We are also looking for monetary donations to help support our efforts. Sign up below to volunteer and/or make a donation. Prepare to get sweaty!

Our goal is to raise $3,000 which will allow us to add plants and flowers, a new basketball hoop, pressure washing, window cleaning, staining for walkway leading to education center and playground equipment.

Please sign up to volunteer, donate funds or both. We thank you in advance for all your hard work.
Adventure...

flying to Chicago to greet Popeye, our new Navy boot camp graduate, adding another Navy guy to the family. But ahoy there, a water route to "C" town doesn't exist. Not directly anyway, so by air off we go. Our early morning flight was delayed because the plane had been hit by lightning. Oh, joy! Our 7:30 flight finally took off at 10:00, being assured that both the nose and wing of the plane had been inspected??/repaired, and prepped for takeoff. Oy. We made it to Chicago and awesome it was. Returning is not so good. Got to Atlanta and sat for 3.5 hours, then another 6 hours as we ran (literally) from Terminal A to B, to A, to T, back and forth 9 times as rain delays had us scrambling for potential flights home. Never made it Saturday night. At the stroke of midnight, all flights were canceled. “Ubered” to our son’s house in Atlanta at 1:30 a.m., slept, and “ubered” back to the airport at 7:00. Got home at 3:00 Sunday and they lost my luggage. I will sit in my usual spot at Beth El when I get back. Consistency is comforting.
P.S. Have spent almost as much time in the airports as I spent in Chicago. That's a massive oy gevalt!

Gift Shop:
Dear Parents,
Are you planning your son or daughter's b'nei mitzvah? 
My name is Rose Aglieco and I am the Beth El Judaica gift shop manager. I would love to assist you with selections of gifts, tallism, and kippot, which can be personalized.
You may start exploring kippots on: www.avivjudaica.com
I will then be able to ask for samples of colors. I will need about 6-8 to complete your order.
 
There are many many options for Talism. There are some in the Beth El gift shop, but your child may want something different. 
The vendor which I like working with can embroider on tallit or bag. Www.ajudaica.com

Please call (914-413-2074) or email Rza819@comcast.net with any questions, or to schedule an appointment by phone or in person.
