Good Morning Congregants,

I have a request from the Movie Commitee , We are looking for that one specific person to help us on our Commitee. The requirements is to come to one meeting , choose the month you would like to show that movie and write a little synopsis of the film. And of course the movie is to be Judaic related. We usually show the movie on a Sunday evening at 7pm I am sure there is someone out there who would love to give us a hand. We need you !!!!

All the best,
Ozzie, Joan Sider and
Rosalie Grant

The establishment of the State of Israel was the fulfillment of a 2000 year old dream of Jews around the world. The impressive scientific, cultural, social and military accomplishments of the State are astounding especially when considering that all her neighbors from the day she was established have tried to destroy her.


Chellie Goldwater Wilensky NA'AMAT USA National President
