Thank you to our Congregation Shalom family for all your support, cards and donations made in memory of my dad Ed Sulfaro. It truly made a difficult time easier.

And Don't Forget...
Order Bookplates for our High Holiday Prayer Books
The Ritual Committee is always pleased to accept bookplate orders at any time of the year. One set of bookplates cost $36.00. Since there are 2 bookplates, you do not have to have the same name on both plates. Look for the forms on the wall opposite the office. This is a beautiful way to remember lifecycle events.
Get Your Grocery Cards
Grocery cards are available for Hannaford, Stop&Shop, Whole Foods or Donelan's, and the Temple makes $7 cashback for each $100 purchased. This leads to thousands of dollars for our programs, with no extra out-of-pocket money from you. Grocery cards can even be sent to college students. Contact Toby Sedgwick at to sign up for the monthly program, and then start shopping and giving back to Congregation Shalom at the same time.
