These traditions will help to enrich and ensure a Jewish future through worship, spirituality, education, celebration and acts of loving-kindness.

Have a Seder? Need a Seder?
If you are having a Pesach seder and can host a person or a couple who don't have a seder to attend, please email Rabbi Weber here as soon as possible.

And if you do not have a seder to attend, please contact Rabbi Weber, too. He will do his best at "matchmaking."

We wish you a sweet, kosher and healthy Pesach!

Spotlight on TRT's 
Special Program Funds!
There are many times in our lives when we want to share our simchas, honor the memory of a loved one, and/or acknowledge someone special.  A great way to show the love is by making a tax-free donation to one of TRT's special program funds. Each week in this column we will highlight a different program fund with the hope that you will feel inspired to support those who will benefit from the fund. This week's spotlight is on the Willner/Weinstein Fund.

This fund was created by Marc and Shelley Willner in memory of their fathers, Abraham Weinstein and Norman Willner, and in recognition of the importance of education to our people's future. It provides financial support to TRT's Center for a Jewish Future for special projects and programs.

To donate to this fund, please click here.
Calendar Raffle
Just a reminder, you can still purchase a set of calendar raffle tickets. The price has dropped to $90 for the remaining 9 months, with four chances to win each and every month for the next nine months. Your odds of winning are excellent, but you have to be in it to win it! Participation helps support the efforts of our temple!

A Note from Our Clergy
We are here to help you through life's most difficult events, and to help you celebrate life's most wonderful events. We want to do everything we can for you, but there are only a few of us and a lot of you.
PLEASE contact us before scheduling any life-cycle event you wish us to share with you. Weddings, funerals and baby namings are important moments in your life, but we often schedule services (especially weddings) months or even years in advance. Before signing a contract or scheduling a service please check with us to be sure we are available, and allow us to set that time aside for you. And we are always here to answer your questions!
