TEMPLE ISRAEL OF PADUCAH
Last visit for the year for our student rabbi, Michael Danziger
Michael will be here for the final time May 9 and 10. We
will be unable to have him for next year because he has at least one internship
lined up already. Try to come that weekend so you can tell him how much
you appreciate his having made that long trip so many times this year, and
for having served us well during the year!
On Friday evening, May 9, our activities will be in the Social
Hall, and they will start at 6:00 p.m. We will have Shabbat services, our
annual congregational meeting,and dinner(not necessarily in that order).
This will be a pot-luck, and you are supposed to bring a side dish, salad or
dessert. The meat dish will be provided, and you are asked to make
reservations with Beth @270-554-5178.
The next morning, Sat. 5/10, there will be the last Mens
Club/Sisterhood Brunch for the year at 10:00 a.m. Adult Education will
follow at approximately 10:45 a.m. Make an effort to attend -----
the topic to discuss might end up being your favorite one!
Time to step up!
There are a number of opportunities for any members who desire to
"step up" into leadership positions in our Congregation. If you
are willing to serve as a member of the Board of Trustees, or as an officer,
please let me know.
The State of the Congregation
We are at a crucial point in our history. Our building has
been adequately maintained through the years, and our fiscal situation is
excellent. Our problem is that membership has been steadily
declining for decades; we have not been replacing those who have left
us. An extra effort to cope with this will be needed from all of our
members. Be prepared to do your part!
News – For April through June, our
grocery items will be canned fruit
and tuna. Once again, please note that meal-in-a-can
items, like Chef
Boy-R-Dee and chili, are always needed and welcome.
