Sha'are Shalom Men's Club


Meeting at my house tomorrow the 22nd! Are you coming?
One more reminder about the 2nd annual Steaks and Scotch in the Sukkah, and just to clear up some misconceptions:

* You do not need to drink to attend (however we will have non-alcoholic drinks available if you'd like)

* You do not need to get there on time or stay til the end to come out, meet new people and socialize!

* You do not have to stick around for the poker tournament afterwards!

* You do not have to bring a drink to share if you don't want to!

* You do not need to be Jewish (many of the guys who came last year were not, although maybe they are now. Who knows? It's not like we check...)

* You do not need to be a member of the synagogue (it'll just cost you a few bucks more)

* You do not have to like Scotch (or steak....or sukkahs! if it rains we'll eat inside anyways!)

Please RSVP here:
Men's Club meeting tonight at my house. Arrive @7:30, starts at 8

Rabbi David Greenspoon

Good morning Congregation Sha'are Shalom. We received this request for short term housing assistance. A follow-up note confirming her bona fides came from the writer's rabbi, a colleague I have known since our time at the Seminary. He knows her family as "most devoted and active shul families" at their Los Angeles congregation. If you are able to be helpful, Rachel can be reached via her email; [email protected].


Rabbi David Greenspoon

If anyone can help...

Can you help with a shiva minyan? Looking for 3, ASAP.
