Ta Shema: March 29, 2023

We have a lot to be grateful for. We’ve been extremely busy at the synagogue since our last Newsletter with many major and successful events. 

The Board wants to thank Sisterhood, Alane Savod, and her team of numerous volunteers not only for their hard work and beautiful presentation of Art but for the very generous donation made to the synagogue. We are thankful for the positive communal impact the Art Show made, bringing in attendees not only from Jewish community, but from the community at large. We are excited to see how this annual event grows each year, and for it to become a yearly staple among Wilmington art enthusiasts. 

The Board also wants to thank Rena Goldwasser and her team of numerous volunteers of close to 20 people for baking, filling orders, making the Mishloach Manot hats, and generally spreading around Purim holiday cheer. The fundraiser was a success with a final number forthcoming. We hope everyone enjoyed their delicious (as always) cookies as well as the beautiful Mishloach Manot hats.

The Purim Carnival was a huge success with close to 150 kids and adults there from BIC and TOI. Thank you to Liz Berger and the rest of the carnival team for all of their work planning, setting up, running booths, and cleaning up. We can’t wait to see this grow year after year. The costumes, food, bouncy castle, and games were enjoyed by children of all ages.

Purim night was a lot of fun filled with skits, songs, and grogger-ing. Many talents were exposed from our congregants and celebrating Esther’s heroism has never been done so well. Looking ahead at the calendar, next year Purim is over the weekend, so stay tuned for that!

Finally, thank you to Trish McLean for her countless hours making sure this all came off smoothly. Your whimsical design of the Mishloach Manot hats and table decorations were creative, fun, and required a lot of work when offices were closed. You are a very treasured member of our team and we can not thank you enough.

See you at shul and all of the upcoming Passover events. Do not forget to RSVP for them ASAP and to let us or the office know if you have any questions.

 

B'Shalom, 

Amy DeLoach, President
