Temple Beth El President’s Message

Happy Chanukah!

On December 6th, the religious school students, teachers and families will celebrate Chanukah with the residents of Sitrin. Everyone is welcome to join in the festivities at the community house on the Sitrin campus from 4 until 6pm.

I would like to thank the Samoshuk family for arranging the vigil after the attack on the Tree of Life members in Pittsburgh. They said in a few weeks the shooting would be old news and soon forgotten. The family asked to create a living memorial for those that had their lives cut short. With the help from congregants, eleven trees were planted on the temple grounds in honor of those slain. In the spring, we will add a plaque and dedicate these trees as a living memorial.

Gratitude can lead to feelings of love, appreciation, generosity, and compassion, which further opens our hearts and help rewire our brains to fire in more positive ways.-- Melanie Greenberg, PhD.

At this holiday season, lend a hand to the less fortunate. Please make a donation to a food bank.
