Our condolences to Marlene Green and family on the passing of her husband, Rabbi Alan Green. He will be deeply missed by the entire community. May she and her family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

SHABBAT MORNING GROUPS: Thank you to Ronnie Fredman and Esti Munk who are leading the Shabbat groups this week. The groups will meet from 10:30 to 11:30 am.

HELP WANTED: Garry is taking vacation on the July 4th weekend. We will need help to clean-up Kiddush, set-up Seudat Shlishit, clean-up after Shabbat, and wash the dishes that were used during the day. If you are available to help, please contact Judy in the office at 727-1880.

LOST & FOUND:Joshua Felsher's coat has been missing since the 1st night Shavuot after the Vasikin Minyan. It is a padded black wool carcoat with buttons. Please let Jonty know if one of your children wore it home by mistake. And Aaron Fredman has lost a gold watch with a black leather band. Please contact Aaron if you have seen it.

TRIBUTE CARDS: Giving Tzedakah is the perfect way to commemorate a simcha or remember a loved one. The Women’s Division has tribute cards for just this purpose. Contact Matilda Zeffren at 862-3809 for more information



The four volunteers who have maintained the Eruv for 15 years are retiring! Wanted: Young people (20's, 30's, 40's) to replace these four people to make up the core group that is responsible for keeping the Eruv up and coordinating the weekly volunteers that assist. Training will be provided (no pole climbing involved). Must be able to use basic tools, (hammer, nails, screwdrivers, pruner, etc.). Must be able to work at variable times prior to Shabbos:

** Spring and Summer: Thursday during the day or evening, Friday in the morning.

** Late Fall and Winter: Thursday evening or Friday morning.

It is imperative to keep this valuable asset viable in our community. We can't let ‘someone else’ do it. This is our Eruv, we as a community are the ones who must take care of it.
