Meeting at my house tomorrow the 22nd! Are you coming?
One more reminder about the 2nd annual Steaks and Scotch in the Sukkah, and just to clear up some misconceptions: * You do not need to drink to attend (however we will have non-alcoholic drinks available if you'd like) * You do not need to get there on time or stay til the end to come out, meet new people and socialize! * You do not have to stick around for the poker tournament afterwards! * You do not have to bring a drink to share if you don't want to! * You do not need to be Jewish (many of the guys who came last year were not, although maybe they are now. Who knows? It's not like we check...) * You do not need to be a member of the synagogue (it'll just cost you a few bucks more) * You do not have to like Scotch (or steak....or sukkahs! if it rains we'll eat inside anyways!) Please RSVP here:
Men's Club meeting tonight at my house. Arrive @7:30, starts at 8

Apologies to the families who tried bringing kids and found out the kid races were booked up. I hope we can do this again soon.

🤔 Maybe if I had been allowed to race with the 8-12 year olds I could’ve had a shot of winning a race!

Rabbi David Greenspoon

Good morning Congregation Sha'are Shalom. We received this request for short term housing assistance. A follow-up note confirming her bona fides came from the writer's rabbi, a colleague I have known since our time at the Seminary. He knows her family as "most devoted and active shul families" at their Los Angeles congregation. If you are able to be helpful, Rachel can be reached via her email; [email protected].

Anyone interested in taking a group trip to Israel?

Join us this Sunday at 10:00 for the info meeting!

Rabbi David Greenspoon

If anyone can help...

Can you help with a shiva minyan? Looking for 3, ASAP.

Just got word about this discussion and brunch.

[03/18/19]   Gents, we still need to lock in a commitment from a few of you to help out at the Purim carnival this weekend.

Hot dog boil/wrap
Set up games
Run games
Put away games
Make cotton candy/popcorn (tentatively slated to have this)

No fish this year. Shave the balloon seemed fun tho. Any other game ideas are welcome!

[03/15/19]   Gents, the Purim carnival is on Sunday the 24th and we are helping to run some games AND make hot dogs. Who can help out with this one? I'm going out of town but will set you up for success if you can participate. 👍🏻

A fun steak and hockey outing tonight with these guys!

[03/10/19]   Gents, we have one extra ticket to the game. First person to message me can get it for $52. There's also a spot at the dinner table for you @ District Chophouse.

[02/25/19]   Hockey night out is less than two weeks away! Sunday, March 10th. I need to know within the next few days if you can join us. Please indicate if you're in for dinner before the game, and what your preference is: steaks, or Tony Changs in Chinatown.

At the J, we are supporting our CommUNITY during the shutdown! Please see below for more details!

---

Dear Friends,

The J continues to stand with our commUNITY as individuals and families deal with the hardships associated with the partial government shutdown. To that end, we would like to invite all furloughed government employees and their immediate family the opportunity to use our facility until the shutdown ends.

We invite you to use our:

Fitness center with free weights and exercise machines;
25-meter, heated indoor pool with six lap lanes;
More than 30 drop-in group exercise classes;
Men's and women's saunas,
and more.

In addition to our wellness facilities, furloughed employees are invited to have fun participating in our drop in activities such as:

Ping pong (Tuesdays/Thursdays, 2pm-4pm; Saturdays, 1pm-3pm)
J Knitters (Wednesday, 1:30pm)
Scrabble (Mondays, 10:30am-1:30pm)
Mah Jongg (offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10am-noon)
Hearts (Thursdays, 10am-noon)
Canasta (Fridays, 10am-noon)

Nonmembers should check in at our Welcome Desk with appropriate government ID and a driver's license.

Members, if you are facing financial difficulties making your monthly dues payments to the J and would like to explore your options, please contact our membership department at [email protected].

Please also note that The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington has launched a resource page for furloughed employees which you may find helpful at this time. https://www.shalomdc.org/government-shutdown-resources/.

We wish everyone well and hope for a quick resolution to the shutdown.

B'shalom,

Jeff Dannick
Executive Director

[01/22/19]   Shalom chaverim, Hello friends,

Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the government shutdown, whether directly or indirectly. We know that many of our own congregants and RUJEC families are government employees, contractors, or in some way depend on government resources.

Loudoun and the surrounding counties all have several organizations that can provide assistance. Sha’are Shalom continues to work with Loudoun Hunger Relief to help keep their shelves stocked for those who are in need. Also, Rabbi Greenspoon can help put you in touch with resources that provide various types of support.

In addition to the above, Sha’are Shalom is holding a gift card drive, collecting gift cards to provide to families who may need a little extra help.
Gift cards may be dropped off at the tzedakah box in the lobby, given directly to Rabbi Greenspoon or Sherri Hayes during regular CSS hours, or may be brought to Religious School and dropped off in the carpool line, to a teacher, or at the office.
We are collecting gift cards for local grocery stores (Giant, Wegmans, Food Lion, Target, etc), Costco / Sam’s Club, gas stations, pharmacies (eg Walgreens, CVS), or VISA/MC/Amex.
If you purchase a card that does not state the denomination on it, we’d appreciate if you would write the dollar amount on the packaging so we can more easily distribute funds equitably, for example with regard to size of family.
Cards will be disbursed either through Rabbi Greenspoon or the Chesed Committee. Requests will be handled with the utmost discretion.

Hopefully this will be resolved shortly. If we have a surplus of funds we will determine the best way to use that money, supporting the Chesed Committee and other Sha’are Shalom Social Action activities including Good Deeds Day, coming in April.

Thank you in advance for your contributions and for helping support our community.

L'hitraot, til we meet again,
Heidi
