Want to remind all Federation members that the Annual Meeting will be August 13, 2013 7:30 pm in the Tifereth Israel Congregation Chapel.  A new slate of officers and board members will be installed.  Dessert reception to follow.

Numerous Federation members traveled to Freetown’s Saint John Neumann Church book club this past Monday night to discuss chapters from Rabbi Skorka and Pope Francis’s book.   Exact date for the second part of this program will be coming in next week’s update.  Hoping more people will be joining us at the Synagogue for this program.

Our first New “How To…Series” will take place August 25, 2013 10:30 am.  The Federation in conjunction with The Ziskind School of Judaism will be presenting a free program, for all adults and children 12 and older, where we will learn (or sharpen our skills) in making round challah for the upcoming High Holiday season.  For further information about this program or to RSVP call the Federation or Synagogue offices by August 23, 2013.   

Hope everyone is having a pleasant and enjoyable summer.
