Rabbi, Penny and the Board of Directors would like to wish everyone a Shabbat Shalom

Please note that the Annual Congregation meeting of Temple Israel will be held this Sunday, June 25 at 5:00 PM. Corned beef sandwiches will be served and reports will be presented on the various issues concerning Temple’s operation. Susan Rupright, president, invite any member in good standing to serve on Temple’s Board. Please give her a call

We pray for speedy recovery ‘re’fua she’lma’ to all who require healing in our community. If you wish that a name of a sick person(s) mentioned at services, please send the names to the rabbi.

Great effort is been made to replace the air condition system at our social hall. Work began on Tuesday and hopefully be ready for Sabbath services.

Rabbi was invited to the annual rabbinical symposium sponsored by AIPAC set for August 31.

Please join us at services this Friday, June 23rd at 7:30 p.m. – The Oneg is being sponsored by Harriet Messcher. The Torah portion of Korah’s main topic is a rebellion by Kirah and followers against Moses leadership. We hope to see you at services.

We would like to encourage every Jewish person in our area to join us as member and join our Temple Israel family in building a Jewish life here in Valdosta. If you know of any Jewish person or family unaffiliated invite them to services.

Best wishes to those among us who are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or another joyous occasion. Let rabbi know that you are celebrating a happy event and will announce it from the Bimah at services.
