Social Action Committee Food Drive
As we prepare to observe the holiest days on our calendar and are busy preparing food for ourselves, family and friends, please take some time to remember this who are less fortunate than we are. Fill a bag with food (empty bags will be available in the lobby) and leave it in the lobby before Yom Kippur. (You can even leave it just before Kol Nidre!) Items that are needed are: canned soups, fruits, vegetables (especially high protein beans like chickpeas), tuna or other fish, chicken or meat, cereals, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, juices. Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity.

SIMCHAT TORAH - This special celebration will be held at Temple Beth Shalom in Mahopac, 760 US Route 6. Our sages said B'rov Am hadrat melech - G-d's presence is glorified in throngs of people. This is an opportunity to capitalize on their teaching. Our adults would benefit from being with a large group of adult Jews, and our children can meet other Jewish children from the region.
Tuesday, November 1, 8:00 PM - Lecture at Bet Torah in Mt. Kisco. Professor Ruth Gavison will present a talk entitled "Israel: Creating A Jewish And Democratic State."
Many thanks to Mohegan Lake Motors and Bob's Furniture for their recent donations. Check out our SPONSORS page for links to the website of these, as well as our other sponsors.
