Pot Luck Shabbat and Torah Service, March 24, 2017 

We had a great turn out and Ruach at our first pot luck Shabbat in January.  There have been many requests to repeat this at our next three Torah Shabbat services.  So once again, we will be having a community vegetarian pot luck dinner at 6:30 before our worship service. Then please stay and support David Abraham as he chants from the Torah during our regular Shabbat service, starting at 7:30 pm.  Please let us know if you are planning on attending and what you will bring: ritual@templebnaichaim.org
Religious School Social Action!

The Religious School Social Action project is building benches for the Carver Center's basketball court! At the Purim Carnival students painted benches casting their vote for the color. While painting, they considered what they could do or say if they saw someone at lunch or recess sitting alone.  Photos are posted here !

Share Your Simcha - Sponsor a Preneg, Oneg or Flowers!

Share Your Simcha - Sponsor a Shabbat, Oneg, Preneg or the Flowers! A wonderful way of celebrating special simchas, such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, the birth of a child or grandchild, is sharing your nachas with the entire congregation by sponsoring the Shabbat Oneg, Preneg or Flowers for the Friday of your special week. No special occasion? You can still sponsor a Shabbat! We will arrange for the flowers, food and set-up, all you do for your family to sponsor is make a minimum donation of $125 for an Oneg, $180 for a Preneg or $250 for the flowers at http://bit.ly/tbconpns.
