NIGHT AT THE RACES is back on FEBRUARY 28, 2015.  The “Night at the Races” is BACK! This event guarantees to be another extremely fun for you and a profitable night for the shul. Thank you for making it a very successful evening in the past. The
combination of betting (Funny Money) on the horse races, browsing the Silent Auction items and ‘shmoozing’ with friends will be great!
The “Night at the Races” committee is working day and night for this year’s event, but we need your help. You can help by collecting wonderful Silent Auction items. Please contact Retail Stores,
Boutiques, Resorts, Theatres and the like where you can get Gift Certificates donated. In addition, if you hhave Personal Services that you can offer that would be much appreciated as well.  

In addition to the Silent Auction we are having a WHITE ELEPHANT Auction. We all have many ‘things’ that we have never opened or are ‘almost’ as good as new! Cabinets filled with candles, soaps, mugs and the like that you may have received from your students and/or business associates. Hardware items that sit on the work tables and in all likelihood will sit there forever and never be used. Too many Hanuakah gifts with no receipts - are you getting the idea?

So, start collecting your donations NOW!
E-mail Len Upin with your item(s).

You MUST give me your ‘Auction’ item along with a short description
no later than Friday, February 20th & the sooner the better!

The Eruv is down until further notice.  Info is located on the Ritual Info page.
