TEMPLE LAY SERVICES AND SUNDAY SCHOOL INFORMATION



Dr. Laurie Ballew and her mother Elsie have returned to Paducah. Laurie has graciously offered to conduct a short service for Shabbat each Friday at 5:30 p.m. at the Temple when our visiting Rabbi is not here. Laurie is also working on a Sunday School program for those of you who have children. If you would like to help or want more information, please call Laurie at 502-468-5571.

This year we are very fortunate to have the assistance of the following professors from Hebrew Union College to conduct services for us on a regular schedule.

· Rabbi Julie Schwartz, mother of former student Rabbi Ari Ballaban. She will conduct our High Holiday Services Sept. 24-25 (Rosh Hashanah) and Oct. 3-4 (Yom Kippur). Details will be sent to you soon.

· Rabbi Ken Kanter

· Rabbi Jonathan Cohen, Dean of Hebrew Union College and our former student Rabbi

As soon as the schedule for their visits has been confirmed, it will be sent to you.

Please take a few minutes each week to join Laurie and her family for Shabbat services.

BULLETIN



Oct.1, 2014



Presidents Message:


Services for Rosh Hashanah went very well. We had a large contingent from the Ballew family. Laurie, Elsie and Joyce recently moved to Paducah and Laurie has joined the Board of Trustees. She also volunteered to be the Chair of the Temple Israel Religious School. The children are learning about their Jewish heritage and their significance in the Jewish Community! Laurie’s willingness to take on positions of responsibility is much appreciated.


If you would like to become more active in the life of Temple Israel, please let me know.


A reminder…on Fridays when there is no Rabbi, there are lay services at 5:30 p.m.
