And Don't Forget...
Youth Scholarships

Throughout the year, there are many enriching Jewish experiences available to our youth through our synagogue or the community.These include, but aren't limited to, summer camps and trips to Washington, New York, and Israel. Fortunately, there is some scholarship money available through the temple to those families in need of financial assistance for these opportunities. Please contact Margie Berenson at 
scholarship@congregationshalom.org with any questions and/or for an application form. 
Grocery Cards

Grocery cards are available for Hannaford, Stop&Shop and Donelan's, and the Temple earns a 6% profit. This leads to thousands of dollars for our programs, with no extra out-of-pocket money from you. Contact Toby Sedgwick,
giftcards@congregationshalom.org to sign up for the monthly program, or to just get a few cards when you are doing a lot of shopping, and then start giving back to Congregation Shalom while you fill your fridge. You can have grocery cards sent to college students too!
Order Bookplates for our High Holiday Prayerbooks

The Mishkan Advisory Group is always pleased to accept bookplate orders at any time of the year. One set of bookplates costs $36.00. Since there are 2 bookplates, you do not have to have the same name on both plates. Use this LINK to obtain the order form. Please send the completed form and check (addressed to Congregation Shalom) to Laura Rodman at 35 Digital Drive # 201, Nashua, NH 03062.

This is a beautiful way to remember lifecycle events.
Caring Committee

The Caring Committee is always available to provide meals or transportation to those members and families who need a little help. Please don't hesitate to email Katie Wolman at caringchair@congregationshalom.org or Rabbi Perry at rabbi@congregationshalom.org, or feel free to call Katie at home.
