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
