SUMMER SHABBAT SERVICES 2013
We will come together as a congregation for worship and to enjoy a Dairy Pot Luck Dinner together on the following Friday evenings:
July 12, 26 and August 9, 23
Dinner will commence at 6:30 p.m. followed by informal services at 7:30 pm. Please join us as we celebrate and enjoy Shabbat as a Temple Family!
Let’s not forget the less fortunate in our community and support the families who use the Women’s Resource Center shelter located in Newport county. They would love to have sheets for their clients and can accept only new linens. In the shelter they have twin beds and would use sheet sets preferentially. Pillows and towels would also be used.
The Rabbi has requested bags of diapers to be used by the family shelter in Middletown.
Don’t forget canned and boxed goods for the Kosher Pantry in Providence.
During your shopping this next few weeks, think of those affected by the modern plagues of homelessness, poverty, and abuse.
Let’s fill the Caring Carts to the brim, and have them overflow if we can!

While playing at the Temple for Yom Ha Shoah services. Stephen was so inspired that he took to writing his oratorio. It was indeed a most beautiful and meaningful work. Congratulations and deepest appreciation to Stephen and to all who participated.
