Purim is in the air!

HAVDALAH SERVICE at 7 pm this Saturday, February 2 in Finkelstein Hall (open to ALL families) followed by our ANNUAL YOUTH GROUP SLEEPOVER for grades 4-12. If you RSVP by email, bring the sleepover permission slip with your child on Saturday evening, with a nut-free dessert (home baked or store-bought ok) and their overnight stuff.

are also in need of food and prize sponsors. If you are able to sponsor other
children at $10 per child, Temple Sinai T-Shirts for others at $10 each, prizes
at $25 per donation, or food at $50 per donation, please contact me! Thanks!!!
