Good afternoon,

Since there have been scheduling conflicts at SBJC in the past months, we want to remind everyone of the procedure necessary to insure your event, meeting, kiddush etc. takes place on the date you want.

1. No one can schedule ANYTHING without checking with the OFFICE first to see if the date is available.

2. If the date is available you must fill out the event form, so that the appropriate people are aware of what needs to be done for the function. This insures that we have the person responsible, the type of event, and what is requested from staff. NO this does not get filled out the day before.

3. If this is not done, and the event is not on the calendar, the event does not exist! No I told so and so - No - We always do this on such and such etc.

Best regards
Evelyn & Jeff


Statement On Today's Tragic Events

Today marks a tragedy for the Jewish people and for the spirit of freedom, democracy and tolerance in the United States. Today's tragedy in Pittsburgh reminds us of the dangers of antisemitism and intolerance. It makes us aware that we must remain vigilant in our struggle to remain a free and open society. It also strengthens our resolve to secure our Jewish communal institutions.

We are greatly saddened by the loss of life and bless those families in mourning with consolation from God among the mourners for Zion and Jerusalem. We are also eternally grateful to all of the security and law enforcement officials for their bravery in protecting the synagogue and its worshippers. May those injured be healed speedily with refu'a shleima (a complete recovery).

CNN has called this the deadliest attack ever on the American Jewish community. May God instill love into the hearts of those who hate and bring healing and hope to shattered hearts and to our mourning community.

- Rabbi Royi Shaffin
