Women's League

Onegs: Onegs are back, and we need your help! We are asking all members to consider signing up for at least one Shabbat morning to help with set up and clean up. Most weeks it will be very simple - just challah, wine, and some prepackaged snacks. Starting in August, we'll also have one week per month that is a full lunch. For those, we'll also need a bit more help on Saturday morning, as well as someone to go to either Pikesville or Rockville on Friday to get food. Please click here to sign up.  If you have any questions, please contact Rachelle Tannenbaum at retannenbaum@gmail.com.

It is with thanks that we acknowledge the donations made to the Oneg/Kiddush fund. Howard Salob reads the list at services each Shabbat and we publish the list in The Weekly Shofar as well. Click here to view a list of donations for June 2022.  In addition to using the funds to serve food in the building, we are donating funds to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank and the Anne Arundel Community College Student Food Bank.
