Where's Weinfeld?

In this piece we will try to find Bob Weinfeld in the image.


You know this is fake because Bob always drives.

Tom Thumb
C'mon, we know you are shopping at Tom Thumb, because they have the Monopoly game going. You could win $1 million AND give to Brotherhood. We have set up a million dollar opportunity to support Brotherhood. The least you could do is give them our number. And Ricky, please don't lose that number ... it's the only one we have.
Don't be dumb, Shop Tom Thumb.
Mention this number at the check-out station:



 Bubbe's Advice   
(You'll Find It Only in the BRO) 
Whatever you do, always give 100% ...
unless you are giving blood.
  You're welcome.

Uncle Shmuel Still Needs You Every Friday!

See my finger? Don't pull it, take it to heart.

I truly need you to be an usher.

Usher: good. Not signing up: bad.

Become one of the few, the proud, the Ushers!*

 * This is a way for added honor to Yartzeit commemoration


Prez Sez

What is a Duckworth? Anyone? Sure it is an old joke...similar to what's a henweigh? It is that time of my presidency...when they declare me a lame duck. But I'm not going down without a fight, we still have plenty of great events coming up, including the Guys Night Out with zip lining. 
So a duck walks into a pharmacy and says, "Do you have any chapstick?" When the pharmacist hands it to him, the duck replies, "Thanks, just put it on my bill." We also have a breakfast and blood drive, and not necessarily in that order. This will be the last blood drive until next September, so please give extra.
What do you call two ducks and a cow? Quackers and milk. We culminate the year with our raucous Installation Dinner, Awards, and Elections. This is always a great event and all members and their families get a complimentary meal! Why was the Brotherhood mad at the duck? Because he wouldn't stop quackin' jokes.

So maybe the term "lame" is appropriate, but I'm no duck. One last Prez Sez to go!

From the Borscht Belt

  The Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded the squirrels were predestined to be there and they should not interfere with God's will.
  At the Baptist church the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistery. The deacons met and decided to put a water-slide on the baptistery and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and, unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week.
  The Lutheran church decided they were not in a position to harm any of God's creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the  Baptist church. Two weeks later they were back because the Baptists took down their water slide.
  But the Catholic church came up with a very creative strategy. They baptized all the squirrels and made them members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter.
  Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue; they took the first squirrel and circumcised him. They have not seen a squirrel since.

An Offer You Can't Refuse.

Thanks for all the volunteers for Second Seder. Jim Warner and Louis Marx did a terrific job, with David Gordon Paul Preite and Ron Wolff running registration. And thanks to Rabbi Paley for being the clergy that joined and led this  congregational seder.

We also thank the ushers for the Yom HaShoah program: Perry Zidow, Irwin Kaufman, Jim Warner, Scott Butnick, Mark Fisher, Bill Hoffpauer, Steve Weintraub, and Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.
If we missed your name, it was not due to a lack of gratitude, it is due to our ineptitude, for which we enjoy abundance. We thank the unthanked, the underthanked, and thankless.

Yes, U2 can give blood!

Volunteer Drive Coordinator
Please see the below from a North Texas donor helping us remember why  we donate:
"Not sure if I ever told you why I give blood ( other than it's a cool/helpful thing to do ) but my son has Leukemia. He was diagnosed October 2015 and was 9 years old. He has received several transfusions throughout his treatment and without people  who donate I am not sure where my son would be right now. This is kinda my way of giving back and giving that 'gift' to other families like mine. Always glad to help."

2019 Shalom Award


Brotherhood is currently vetting candidates for the 2019 Shalom Award. We are looking for a person that has had an impact on the community, has shown integrity, and will bring notoriety to Temple Shalom. The current candidate is Stephanie Clifford of McKinney, Texas, whom you may also know as Stormy Daniels. If chosen, Brotherhood will save money on overhead because she already has videos.
