Weekly Message from our Board President
March 10, 2014
Time to party! It’s Purim, and that means party time! Purim is one of the most fun holidays of the year. We’re encouraged to dress up, make noise, eat Hamantashen, and have fun, all at the expense of Haman. Purim is the story of how Esther and Mordecai saved the Jewish people and outsmarted Haman. We’re celebrating in fine style with our annual Purim party this Saturday night at 7 PM. There will be food, fun, and frivolity – that’s the rules for celebrating Purim.
The Purim Baskets have been put together and are on their way. They are filled with all kinds of goodies and treats. And… they have greetings from various people in our Congregation. The greetings are a fundraiser for us – the greeters pay a little extra to send messages to the greetees (you didn’t know you were a greetee, did you?)
Our Rabbi candidates’ visits have been set. The flights have all been booked, and we’re eager to meet the candidates in person and attend their services. There is one change in the schedule. Because of flight times, the candidates will have to leave too early on Sunday to teach religious school. The flights don’t leave late enough in the day for them to teach on Sunday, and make it to the Denver airport on time.
The schedule calls for a candidate in Cheyenne the weekends of March, 21, March 28, and April 4. Then we’ll hold a full Congregation meeting on Sunday, April 13 to get your input. The Board of Directors will consider that input, and make the formal decision on who to bring to Cheyenne as our next Rabbi.
There’s an extra benefit to this. We want you to come to services either Friday night or Saturday morning (or both) for each of those weekends to meet the Rabbi candidates. And don’t stop there! Keep coming to services. We’d love to have you and this could become a new Friday night or Saturday morning tradition (or both!)
On all three weekends we will also have a Saturday evening dinner with the candidates, so you’ll have a chance to talk with them and get to know them.
The Mark Goldberg Memorial Rummage Sale is coming up fast! The sale will be on Sunday, March 30th from 9 AM to 2 PM. We’ll be taking in donations for the sale the week before that, on Sunday, March 23, also from 9 AM to 2 PM. If you would like someone to pick up items at your home, please give Jacklyn Humphrey a call at 307-421-8215. We also need lots of volunteers to help with organizing the items and the sale itself. And a quick reminder - We are NOT accepting donations of clothing, shoes, mattresses, bedding, or upholstered furniture.
A couple of familiar faces in our Synagogue are working together on a special presentation for the Cheyenne community. The third Africa Remembrance Day is set for Saturday, April 12, from 8:30 to 12:30 in the Union Pacific Centennial Room at LCCC. There will be guest speakers music, traditional dances, and more, focusing on the Diaspora of African peoples. It’s sponsored by the history department at LCCC, but the organizers include Doctors Mohammed Salih and James Peebles.
We have a new fundraiser to tell you about. An organization called That’s My Pan sells all kinds of kitchen utensils, such as cake pans and lids, cutting boards, coffee mugs, and more. You can have your name put on them, or a favorite team or corporate logo. It’s a great way to give someone a personalized gift. Mt. Sinai gets a portion of the proceeds when you make a purchase. To see what they have to offer, please click here: http://www.thatsmypan.biz/frwy10009.
This is a busy and exciting time at Mt. Sinai. We’re looking forward to seeing you a lot over the next few weeks!
