All those who borrowed machzorim for the High Holidays are kindly asked to return them to the synagogue by October 31.

Please leave books in a plastic bag on the bench under the canopy at the side entrance to the building off the back parking lot.

Please put your name, and number of books borrowed on a piece of paper sticking out of the book, to identify whose books have been returned. No need to return the blue tote bag--that is for you to keep.

We cannot give credit to those who have left prayer books without details. If you have done this, please email Lisa L with your name and number of returned books.

We appreciate your help! Thank you to all those who have dropped off prayerbooks already!
