YOM HASHOAH:  If you are a survivor, a child of survivors or a liberator, please contact Rabbi Joe ASAP,

SHABBAT CANDLES:  Carol Bowler will light the Shabbat candles in honor of her birthday with Carole Schnall.  The cake for the Oneg is sponsored by Carol Bowler and Carol Gay in observance of their birthdays.

TORAH PROJECT:  Thank you to those who have made a gift to the Torah Project. If you have not yet supported this once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a light weight Torah for our congregation and restore the one repairable scroll that we currently own, now is the time. Please return the tear-off on the brochure you received with your check or pledge. If you need another brochure or have questions, call Marti Hack 949-572-3204, or Margot Gilison, 949-339-0318.

THE SOFER:  The next visit of the Torah scribe is May 25 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of Clubhouse 5. Join us to write a letter in the Torah scroll. His final visit will be July 7 from 1 to 4 p.m.

ONEG SHABBAT SERVERS: It is an easy and rewarding mitzvah to pour coffee and tea at the Oneg Shabbat following services and a great way to meet others.  To volunteer, please email Lynne at until the chairperson is back on duty.  

ONEG SHABBAT SPONSORS:  Consider hosting an Oneg in honor of a birthday, anniversary, simcha or “just because.”  Call Ray Perlstein for further information, 310-720-1882
