A parents' meeting took place in the shul last Motsash. Those who attended all agreed
on how important
an active BermaNoar group is for our kids and for the future of our community.
Parents, whether you attended or not, please give a few minutes of your
precious time to update us with the
following information about your school age children (Grades א-י"ב), names, gender, age, email and/or Facebook and cell phone numbers (if they have them).

The number of people attending the morning minyan has been reduced by at least 25-30%
relative to 5 years ago. Although we are not yet at the point where we may not have
a minyan during week days, nevertheless for a shul of our membership and commitment
to shiurim and all types of religious activity, the size of the morning minyan is
disconcerting. If only 40 people who presently do not attend the minyan would commit
to coming just once or twice a week in addition to Shabbat on days that are more
convenient for them, we would find the minyan to be much larger and more commensurate
with the shul goals.
Kippot: Did you find unneeded kippot during your Pesach
cleaning? If so, please donate them to the shul for the use of visitors.

- On Shabbat Parshat Tazria-Metzora April 20, we were asked to host Nativ soldiers.
We need 15-20 families. The Nativ course is open to all Olim (Jewish under 10 years
in Israel) & non Jewish. During this course they learn about Jewish history,
Zionism, basic Tanach, Chagim etc. For those who want to convert, this is a preparation
course before they start the conversion seminars. The Shabbat spent with a family
is one of the highlights of the Nativ course, but as it is the first time for most
of them participating in a Jewish orthodox Shabbat they naturally have some fears.
For most of them it will be the first time experiencing Hachnasat Orchim. Unfortunately
quite a few of them experienced rejection as Olim ... we hope a Shabbat at Berman's
will give them a different experience. As not all of them need or want to convert,
it would be fine to commit to only hosting them this Shabbat, for those of you who
would like to continue hosting them during their conversion (3-4 Shabbatot), we
will make the match. As Pesach is right before this Shabbat I would appreciate it
if you would get back to me ASAP so I can arrange the hosting before then (the soldiers
come in couples, either boys or girls). For more information & to sign up please
contact Ilana Friedlander at: email@example.com
or 057-5706592 Thanks!
