Dear fellow B’nai Sholom congregants,
I really should begin this thank you note with a different salutation…Dear B’nai Sholom friends. I want to thank everyone for the lovely oneg following Shabbat Hanukkah services and all the tributes and kind words. I shall treasure my special “kippot” and will need to ask the Rabbi what the correct Hebrew word is for the pom-pom on top! The necklace is beautiful and I shall wear it with pride and remembrance. I am still glowing from the warmth in the room…and not just from the Hanukkah candles.
As I said at the oneg, I have too many words to say about B’nai Sholom, my fellow congregants and the past twenty-two years, and so I will say only a few:
I have been most fortunate to work among friends. In Ecclesiastes chapter 4, verses 9 & 10 it says:
“Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up her fellow; but woe to her that is alone when she falls, for she has not another to lift her up.”
For twenty-two years you ALL have lifted me up. Thank you.

Purim is a day of taking and giving pleasure. For years, we have rejoiced in our deliverance from Haman through the mitzvot of Tzedakah and Mishloah Manot: Tzedakah is performed by donating food or money and Mishloah Manot by sending sweet treats to friends. Once again, BSRC will provide congregants the opportunity to fulfill both of these mitzvot.
The Fundraising Committee's bakers will be producing dozens of yummy Hamentaschen cookies, which will be combined with wine or fruit juice, fruits, nuts, candy, and other treats in festive gift bags. Every congregant family will receive one gift basket, but all congregants will have the opportunity to sponsor these baskets as a way of sending a personal holiday message and gift. You can honor your fellow B'nai Sholom friends and support the congregation's fundraising efforts while participating in this wonderful tradition

We love our Sukkots and Rosh Hashanah luncheons, but we don't have many photos of congregants enjoying the food and fellowship that only happens once a year.
Thanks to the photographers among us (with a shoutout to Fran Sinkoff!) who came through with pictures from the wonderful Rosh Hashanah luncheons arranged by the Membership Committee, spearheaded by Terry Royne & Bettina Stoller. And thanks to those who hosted. Smiles were bountiful, along with terrific food. The New Year certainly started off sweetly.
Fundraising for B'nai Sholom is easy, painless, and -- best of all -- FREE. Pre-paid grocery cards from Hannaford and ShopRite, and Internet shopping through our web page portal both net funds for the congregation, with no surcharge for shoppers. What's not to love? Further Information..
