Elul is here, so the High Holidays are not far away.  Our youth are looking for some adults to help with groups over the upcoming chagim.  If you are willing to spend 20 - 30 minutes helping in any way such as leading tefillot, telling a story, leading an activity, or giving snacks, we would love your help.  Please contact Debbie Kusnetz atDebbieBKusnetz@yahoo.com.  We are looking for adult group leaders on the following days:  Rosh Hashana, Monday - Tuesday, September 14 - 15; Yom Kippur, Wednesday, September 23; Sukkot, Monday - Tuesday, September 28 - 29; Shemini Atzeret, Monday, October 5.
The youth committee also requests that those attending Rosh Hashana or Yom Kippur with children please let us know in advance which kids will be coming.  These are not reservations, but will help us plan for groups.  Reply to Debbie Kusnetz (email address above).
