Torah Covers
As part of our effort to renew our Torah stock, we are considering replacing one of the old and worn out Torah mantles. Please contact Saul Melamed if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity.

Tal Umatar Reminder
If you would like the dew and rain to keep falling from the sky over the next few months, then you should start saying v'ten tal umatar livracha in the amida soon. The time to say it starts this coming Monday (Dec. 4) at night.

Hanukkah Party
The Annual Mizrachi Bayit Hanukkah Party is coming...  Please contact Saul Melamed if you can help out.

Seeking Volunteers
We are looking for a volunteer to help set up electricity on Friday afternoon before Shabbat. If you can help out from time to time that is fine. If you can do it on a regular basis that would be great. Contact Les Lightstone if you can help insure hot cholent for kiddush on Shabbat.
