This Shabbat is the last Shabbat for your year end giving. Contributions must be received by 12/31/19 in order to credit it for this year and include it on your 2019 annual donation statement. If you have moved in the last year and have a new address please be sure you update your contact information by giving it to Dan Boron.


Did anyone accidentally pick up an aluminum bowl for a rice cooker? It may have erroneously been put with the lost and found stuff, but it was only left for one week. It belongs to a rice cooker which is useless without it. The part is no longer being made so it can’t be replaced. If you picked it up could you please return it to the kitchen?


December 28th after Shabbat Services.

Let’s have a party!
Bring your Hanukkiah and we will all light our Menorahs when the sun goes down.

Break out your frying pan!

We need party food!

Traditional party food for Hanukkah is Latkes with sour cream and apple sauce
and sufganiyot (Jelly Donuts).

These are in addition to our regular Oneg foods.
Please don’t forget to bring something, anything to help with the number of extra people we will have. Even if you don’t cook, you can bring Jelly Donuts from the store, applesauce, or sour cream. See newsletter for recipes and other suggestions for food.

Get ready for the
Eitz Chaim Hanukkah Talent show.

Every Shabbat we are blessed to have MORE VISITORS join us for oneg. Because fellowship is an important part of Eitz Chaim’s ministry, we are asking

ALL MEMBERS and REGULAR ATTENDEES TO PARTICIPATE BY BRINGING A DISH, OR TWO, to Shul on Shabbat. Oneg is a time of sharing and fellowship.
Remember chicken is allowed for Oneg now.
PLEASE LET OUR VISITORS AND  
SENIOR CITIZENS GO TO THE HEAD OF THE LINE.
ALL CHILDREN SHOULD GO THROUGH THE LINE
