Temple Maintenance and Purim

MAINTENANCE

     A quick note concerning Temple maintenance. As noted in this month's PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE, the long-needed repairs to the rearmost sanctuary accordion dividers, along with a few other minor repairs, were completed within schedule and on budget. Earlier in the year, the badly deteriorated overhead loading dock door was replaced also within budget. Many thanks to Temple President Sandy Pellegrino for arranging for and overseeing these much-needed maintenance projects.

PURIM

     The Temple celebrated Purim this year with a festive Purim carnival on Sunday morning , 8 March and with the traditional reading of the Megillah - the Scroll of Esther - on Monday evening , 9 March. The carnival had games, arts and crafts, food and a Purim Spiel (play).

     The Monday evening Megillah reading was done in a combination of Hebrew and English by various Temple members and was followed with more food and drink.

     Once Again, we gave thanks for the foiling of an evil plot against the Jewish people and were reminded that there are still too many Hamans in the world who harbor only malevolence toward the Jewish people and the State of Israel.

     Shown below are pictures from the Purim carnival.
