Mazal tov to Be'eri Anna Gelpe on her birth and naming this week in Israel!  Mazal tov, as well, to proud parentsJoey & Rona Gelpe, grandparents Marcia & Dennis Gelpe, and the entire family.  May the family enjoy much nachas from Be'eri Anna!
Yasher koach to those who made our most recent dinner at St. Stephen's Homeless Shelter so well received.  Many thanks to cooks Judy Shapiro, Rob Portnoe, Yoni Potter, Leah Golberstein, Ezra Golberstein, and Wendy Khabie; and our servers Rafi and Alex Geretz, and Raleigh Kent and her grandson.  Thanks, too, to Lee Snitzer for coordinating this wonderful program!


Thanks to all who attended our annual meeting last Sunday.  Wendy Khabie was elected President, and Mitch Burke was reelected Treasurer.  We welcome new board members Mark Glotter, Allyson Kats, and Schelomo Marmor, who begin their two-year terms.  They join board members Rafi Huntley, Linda Maach, and Joram Slager, who are beginning their second year.  Many thanks to outgoing board members Daffy Friedman, Ron Krebs, and Judy Marcus.

Want to be ready to participate in the Women’s Megilla readings?  A class will be taught this summer for women and girls who want to learn to chant the three megillot, Ruth, Kohelet, and Shir haShirim.  Judy Shapiro will teach the trop, at a class time to be determined by the participants.  Contact Judy by June 15 to sign up for this “growth opportunity”!


If you weren't able to make it to the annual meeting, we still have some note cards, stating that a donation has been made to Darchei Noam, and featuring one of our beautiful Torah covers.  A package of 5 is $10.  Contact Hanna Bloomfield if you'd like some of these beautiful cards!
