This Week on Shabbat
Weekly Drash by Rabbi David Schiller
Special drash on Purim entitled
“Hacking Agag to Pieces – To Obey is Better than Sacrifice.”
A full production Purim Play will be presented at 2 pm following Oneg. Please everyone pitch in to help clean up so everyone can enjoy the day!
NOTICE: New Foundations class will not be meeting this week so you can experience and enjoy the holiday of Purim.
Don’t forget to make or bring Hamantaschen!
We will begin our first project at the meeting.
March 3, 2018 is Purim!
Service begins at 10:30 am
Seating is limited
Because this is a Special Holiday Shabbat
BRING A DISH TO SHARE FOR ONEG!
So you say you’re not a cook, so bring something, anything, there are stores with bakeries, and frozen items that you can heat up, chips, cheese, crackers! Please participate, buy some fruit, candy, cookies but please participate and share! Please check items for kosher symbol!
If you don’t bake, Cindy’s Deli or Deli News has them!
Watch for special Purim Notice with recipes for Hamentaschen coming your way this week.
Corporate worship depends on everyone in the room participating and engaged at the same time. Keep your fire burning during the week. Pray, worship, read the Word! If you’ve lost the fire of God, cry out for more. The more fire you carry the more of God’s glory we experience corporately. The rest of us are counting on you!
