A Dvar Torah from my cousin
Danny Ginsbourgh 
   Why are all the measurements of the Aron, in the mishkan, 'incomplete'- fractional?; and, why are the length and the width of the Shulchan 'complete' numbers, while its height is fractional and'incomplete''? 
   The Kli Yakar offers a beautiful answer:The Aron represents Torah learning and avodat Hashem: In these critical areas of our lives, we should always regard ourselves as 'incomplete'; recognizing that, no matter what 'heights' we may have reached, we are a long way from being 'complete'. 
   However, in material matters, to which the Shulchan alludes, we should always be satisfied with our lot, as signified by the amot of the length and width of the Shulchan being 'complete'. 
   But why then, is the height of the Shulchan a 'broken' measure? 
   Explains Rav David Hofstedter:Though we are required to be happy with our own lot, this must not lead us to be 'blind' to the needs of others who are less fortunate, and to say to them: 'just as we are happy with our lot, so too must they be'.
But rather, from the 'height' of our 'complete' Shulchan, we should look out for those whose Shulchan is 'incomplete', and help them, so that their Shulchan is also 'complete'. 
   And, by helping them, we will be giving thanks to Hashem, for all His blessings, to us! 
Shabbat Shalom!

     Pasta for Purim    
  Here is a suggestion for a new kind of gragger/noisemaker for Purim.  Please bring a securely closed box of pasta to shul with you when you come to hear the Megillah reading on Wed. evening, March 20th.  At the mention of Haman during the Megillah reading you can vigorously shake your Purim package of pasta.  After services pasta boxes will be collected to donate to the Morse School.  You are welcome to bring in jars or cans of sauce to donate, but use only the pasta for shaking!   
The Jewish Social Action Coalition thanks you.

 Library Volunteers Needed

The library at the Morse School is up and running.  Although there is a part time librarian who works there, volunteers are still needed to help out.  The volunteers will help students select and check out books and reshelve books.  Some volunteers may choose to read aloud to groups of students.  All new volunteers will be trained--it's very simple.  Volunteers shifts are on Mondays and Thursdays for 2 hours.  The children are excited to come to the library and borrow books. This can be a very rewarding experience for our volunteers.

You can do this job once a week, once a month, or whenever it is convenient for you.  To see what shifts are available and to sign up go to (in the URL spot) and sign up for the times that work for you.
