Believe it or not, Chanukah is right around corner, which means we need to assemble the Temple’s menorah. This year, we are planning to do this on Sunday, December 11th at 7pm and of course have our annual Beer night after the assembly. We will be sending out an Evite to remind everyone and to get RSVP’s as we need to know how much beer to buy. Also, since it’s early enough, we can do “take out” if you wish. Cost will be about $10 each to pay for the beer. If you have a favorite beer, feel free to bring it! Just let me know so we don’t purchase the same beer. If you make your own beer, feel free to bring it as well. Since it is a work night, we’ll probably leave around 9pm (the latest). Any questions, please contact Stewart Lipson.
Sunday, December 11 through Saturday, December 24
