In many ways the February “lull” offers some a little breather as we prepare to launch into a busy spring with Purim, Passover, student participation services, and of course Bat Mitzvahs. I look forward to celebrating with you all over the next few months. Two highlights this month are:
- Our Purim celebration on Sunday March 12 with a kid-friendly telling of the megillah and, of course, carnival games. This is a great opportunity to introduce new families to our community. If you know someone who might be interested, please invite them to join us.
- A special Friday night service on March 24, which will include an Auf Ruf to recognize the upcoming wedding of Jamie Sacks and Ken Levine as well as the 60th wedding anniversary of Harvey and Linda Hecker.
Finally, if you haven’t done so already, it isn’t too late to make a donation to our Annual Appeal. Please contribute whatever you can—whether $18 or $180 or $1800. Your financial support will help us in maintain a relevant, lively, sustainable center for contemporary Jewish life here in Ashland.
