Last chance to sell your chametz!  Sale of chametz forms were sent last week, and printed copies are available at the shul.  While it is best to complete the transaction in person, it may be done by mail.  Remember to indicate if you will be traveling east or west at the beginning or end of Pesach.  Forms must be returned by this Friday, April 11.


Enjoy an old tradition in a new location!  Darchei Noam's 9th annual Pesach weenie roast will take place, G-d willing,next Thursday evening, April 17, at 7:00 pm.  Weather permitting, we'll be on the patio.  We supply the grill and the Romanian hot dogs (regular and garlic).  You bring unopened bottles of kosher l'Pesach soda, chips, marshmallows, and pareve cookies and chocolate.


All women and girls are invited to our Women's Shir haShirim reading on Shabbat chol haMoed (April 19).  The reading will begin at 4:30 pm at shul.


A mathematics professor from Bar Ilan University, his wife, and their four kids will be visiting Minneapolis from July 24 to August 18, and would like to find a house or apartment in the eruv they could rent for that time.  They are also willing to swap their house in Elkana, Israel, if someone is visiting Israel during the summer.  If you know of some place available (or would be willing to host them!), please let Tom Silver know (tesilver01@gmail.com).


Dahlia Krebs and the HMJDS choir will be performing at STEP's 14th annual Empty Bowls event, Thursday, April 10, at Westwood Lutheran Church, 9001 Cedar Lake Rd.  Empty Bowls is a critical fundraiser for STEP in its effort to fight hunger.  Kosher soup will be available.  If you have lunch at the event, a donation is appreciated, but is not expected.  All donations go toward efforts to meet the growing hunger needs in our community.  Empty Bowls runs from 11:00 am - 6:30 pm.  The HMJDS choir performs at noon.  Please show your support for STEP, our community, and Dahlia!
