Finalizing the

the permanent donor board. Members’ names will be listed on the donor
board within categories, based on pledges above the assessment.
It is important to ensure that the board is accurate.  All
members were mailed a draft of the permanent donor board.  Please
check to make sure that your name appears as it should, and that it is
in the correct category. Any corrections or changes should be submitted
to Barbara

Updating Youth
Lists – Names of Children Entering 3 Year Old Nursery Needed!  
We are currently updating the youth
lists. Your child automatically graduates to the next grade (for
example, 3 year old nursery becomes 4 year old nursery).  Please
email with
any additional changes and the names of any children entering 3 year
old nursery.


The Flame High
Holiday Services.  
One additional option for the high holidays is the Flame
services to be held again this year at 1228 North Avenue, in our former
sanctuary.  Flame services are somewhat briefer, explanatory and
give time for questions and discussions, but are still run to ensure
that all halachic prayer requirements are met.  The services are
designed both for our members who want to study the prayers in greater
depth and as outreach to the community.  There is no charge for
these services, but reservations are required.  If you can read
Torah for any of these services or help out as a chazzan, we have a few
open slots and could really use your help.  Please contact Mat Hoffman for
more information.



Ruach.  Please join Ruach on Wednesday,
August 6 for “Stories from the Clinton White House,”
presented by Stephen Neuwirth, Associate White House Counsel for
President Clinton (1993-1996).  There will be a light lunch at
12:30pm followed by the program at 1:15pm.  Please RSVP to Vera Koppel by
Tuesday, August 5 if you plan to attend.

like to sponsor Ruach in honor or in memory of someone, please
