FOOD SHORTAGE: The Harvey Kornblum Food Pantry is asking for our help. They have had over an 80% increase in clients between January and May of 2009 compared with the same months in 2008. Because of this, they need to restock their shelves more often. The kids are home from school now and the meal programs for students do not operate in the summer. They are in need of most items, but especially: peanut butter, jelly, rice, tuna, juices, macaroni & cheese, and healthy snacks. If you have any questions, please contact Sue Rundblad at 314-812-9307 or


Mishnat Pinchas: TMK parent/child learning begins 5 minutes after the start of Kiddush.
