Thank You

Thank you so much to our temple family for the donations, cards, emails and sympathy sent to our family on the loss of our father and zadie, Ira Silverman. Your thoughfulness and support helped to sustain us during this difficult time.
-Susan, Chris, Becca and Deborah Miller

Thank you very much for your cards, kind words, and support regarding my recent surgery. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated.
-Gerry Miller

We also want to thank Eileen Hirsch for serving as committee chair for the Communications Committee these last few years. Eileen has dedicated many hours keeping this group on track and always moving forward. Thank you Eileen! And so glad to still have your expertise on this committee. Please welcome Rob Berkovitz as the new chair.
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 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, 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

We are 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 or Rabbi Perry at, or feel free to call Katie at home.
