Passover Seder a Home Run!!!

     April 15, 2022 was highly memorable in that it was the first home game for the Red Sox in 2022 and Temple Tifereth Israel had one of the most enjoyable “Simchas” in memory – a festive and complete Passover Seder.

     The Seder seating limit was reached well before the date of the Seder. There were some who wanted to attend but could not because of the limit on attendance. LESSON: Next year, reserve seats at the Seder early!      There was no charge for attending the Seder. BUT, donations to cover the cost of the Seder were solicited. It's not too late - if you would like to help defray the cost of the Seder, you can still do so by writing and sending a check to Temple Tifereth Israel, or You can now make donations to Temple Tifereth Israel on-line. You can do so by clicking on the Donate button below.

     The Seder was completely arranged by Rabbi Ben Flax and his wife Adena. They, and a number of Temple helpers, took care of all the details: setting up the tables, obtaining all the ingredients for the Seder meal and Seder ceremonies, making the Temple kitchen kosher for Passover, cooking the Seder meal, serving the Seder meal – complete with chicken soup and matzoh balls, a brisket main course - and a wonderful selection of dessert cakes and cookies, the Passover wine and other somewhat more potent drinks.

     The Seder was preceded by afternoon and Friday evening services. The Seder itself was a complete Seder, from the first cup of wine to the last cup of wine and the final words, “NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM”, followed by the very spirited singing of “Adir Hu”, Chad Gadya” and “Ehchad Mi Yodea”.

     Everything went off without a hitch. In spite of the Jewish reputation of always being late, the entire evening proceeded on schedule: services at 6:30, Seder at 7:00, and conclusion at 10:30. It was an evening of perfection – in baseball parlance, IT WAS A GRAND SLAM HOME RUN!

Kol Hakavod and Todah Rabah!

Six Receive Red Cross CPR Certification

During March and April this year, six congregants of Temple Tifereth Israel took a Red Cross CPR (Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation) course. All six participants successfully completed the course and received Red Cross CPR certifications.

Over 500,000 cardiac arrests occur each year. CPR training from the American Red Cross can be the difference between life and death. The CPR course taken at our Temple was given by an American Red Cross expert and satisfies OSHA regulatory requirements. The Temple members who completed the training are now prepared to provide care when if and when it's needed.

Shown below are pictures taken at the CPR training course.
