Welcome to Temple Etz Chaim
Thursday, September 1, 2016, 7:30pm-9:00pm at TEC
For the first time in our Temple’s history, we are going to use a different prayer book for the High Holy Days. Join Rabbi Alpert as we learn about the new offerings that you will find in Mishkan Hanefesh. This session will help prepare you to make the most out of your Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
Deadline: Sunday, September 11, 2016, 5:00pm
Last year TEC Sisterhood raised $5,500 between the Rosh Hashanah and Purim Greeting Project and we donated 100% of it back to the Temple. Sending Rosh Hashanah greetings is a heartfelt way to emphasize the Jewish unity that lies at the core of the high holidays and a way to create meaningful connections within our own TEC community. All Temple members should have received an email with your own personal code. When you login you can choose to send a Rosh Hashanah greeting along with a small jar of local honey to as few or as many members of our congregation. Each greeting costs $6.00. for every 5 greetings, you get the next one free. If you’d like, you can send one to each family in the congregation for $180. That’s a savings of $390. After we close this fundraiser, each family will receive one jar of honey and a greeting card listing all the families that chose to send you a greeting. This fundraiser is run by Sisterhood. If you can’t find your email with your personal password or have any questions, please contact Margot Rivelis.

One is beloved and respected; the other is unpopular and ignored. What happens when one receives the honor the other has so desperately sought? Join the discussion. Refreshments will be served.
