Feb 21, Mar 7 Kiddush Cooperative 2015 We have finished our second cycle of the Kiddush Cooperative and based on feedback from members, it continues to be a nice addition to our kiddush calendar allowing a group of families to sponsor at least seven to eight times a year a hot and delicious kiddush. Thus, we would like to start our third cycle following the yeshiva break. In order to do that we need at least twenty four families to participate at a cost of $200 per family. This is an excellent way to sponsor kiddush at a very reasonable price. While we typically order from our local vendors, we welcome feedback from Kiddush Cooperative members on what types of menus they would like to see. Thank you to the following families who have joined this year's Kiddush Cooperative: Adams, Alt, Barber, Barta, Blass, Blech, Borodach, Carman, Distenfeld, Einhorn, Eisenman, Levin, Polinsky, Rabitz, Rivkin, Rose and Anonymous families for your season sponsorship. If We still welcome families to join the Kiddush Cooperative. The more families we have, the more hot kiddushes we can enjoy throughout the year. It is not too late to join! Please email Holly Weiss at [email protected] to add your name to the Kiddush Cooperative. Kiddush Committee News Families interested in sponsoring a kiddush and/or seudat shlishit should contact Holly so that she can reserve the date on the shul calendar. Please also let Holly know if you would like to participate in an upcoming Crock Pot Challenge which generally takes place around Rosh Chodesh. We've been doing these for a year and are always seeking new families to take the challenge. Kiddush clean up is on a rotating basis, based on your last name. While we recognize that everyone in your group may not be available each Shabbat, we ask that you pitch in if you are assigned in that month so that the same people are not doing the clean-up each week. We all like kiddushes and we all make plans for lunch after shul so please be respectful of your fellow congregants by helping out during your assigned month if you are in shul. We also ask that you please watch your children during Kiddush to the extent possible, and to place their finished items in the garbage cans provided. Feb: Brodsky, Darack, Furer, Fried, Goldgewert For more information on anything Kiddush related, please contact Holly Weiss at [email protected] Learning Opportunities We are always looking for opportunities to strengthen our connection to Torah. The more Torah in the shul, the better, so let us know if you have any other suggestions. Rabbi Ciment's new Sunday morning shiur at 7:50 am & weekly shiur on Wednesdays at 7:50 pm before ma'ariv.

Holocaust Memorial Committee Petition Deadline - Feb 24 The Teaneck Holocaust Memorial Committee has been working to get a Holocaust Memorial created in Teaneck. We believe that it is important to create a Holocaust Memorial in the Township of Teaneck to memorialize those who perished in the Holocaust and establish a place for the community to use for reflection and education about the tragedy of genocide and the lessons of tolerance. We believe that Brett Park (River Road at the intersection of Winthrop Road) is the best choice to establish the Holocaust Memorial due to its accessibility to the community, available parking and visibility from River Road. We urge the Teaneck Township Council to take the necessary steps to make this a reality. That's why we created a petition to Teaneck Town Council. To review the petition, and decide whether to sign it follow this link: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/say-yes-to-holocaust-1? source=c.em.cp&r_by=12390061 Ma'ayanot Annual Dinner - Mar 7 The Ma'ayanot Yeshiva High School for Girls Annual Scholarship Fund Dinner will take place on Saturday night, March 7, 2015 at 8:30 p.m. at Congregation Keter Torah in Teaneck.
