Thank You Faye and Richard Borofsky

     Recently, one of the two Temple refrigerators went to that great refrigerator heaven in the sky. As most of you are aware, the Temple’s refrigerators are in constant use with Saturday kiddushes, Sunday breakfasts, Friday night pot luck dinners and much, much more. So, losing the use of one of our refrigerators caused a great inconvenience.

     Fortunately, our long-time members, Faye and Richard Borofsky, immediately offered to purchse a new replacement for the defunct refrigerator . The new refrigerator has been delivered and is now operating in our kitchen, keeping our food fresh for our many functions.

     Heartfelt thanks for the Borofsky’s generosity. Todah Rabah!

     Shown below are Faye and Richard Borofsky in front of the Temple's New refrigerator.

Never Had A Bar or Bas Mitzvah?

      Some of our Temple members and some members of the Jewish communityin and around Winthrop who are not members of the Temple may have never experienced their own Bar or Bas Mitzvah. We are offering the opportunity for these people to become Bar or Bas Mitzvah'd. Your Bar/Bas Mitzvah training will include English and Hebrew and everyone. No matter what your background or ability, you will be able to participate and achieve this wonderful goal.

      Contact the Temple at "617-846-1390" for more information. Remember: Everyone can be a participant, as long as you have the desire. We will accommodate to everyone's abilities, needs and desires.

If Not Now, When is the Right Time to Place a Leaf on the Tree of Life?

     Place a leaf on the Tree of Life in the Main Sancutary to support the Temple while showing your love and affection for dear friends and relatives. Engraved leafs cost only $180 and there is no more appropriate way to honor loved ones and to celebrate those special occasions - anniversaries, births, birthdays, etc.

     You can order your leaf by providing the Temple with your instructions for the name and message to be placed on the leaf and sending in your payment. It will normally take 4 to 5 weeks for your order to be completed.
