Joint Book Club with Hadassah 
We will be reading Dara Horn’s “Eternal Life: A Novel” as the selection for the annual joint book club event with Hadassah.  The date & time for this spring get-together will be announced soon.  Please plan to join us and begin reading… 

Temple Emanu-El Judaica Shop 
Come visit the Temple Emanu-El Gift Shop during our usual hours on Sunday mornings during Religious School. Browsers welcome! With the New Year, we have a need for fresh ideas. There has been a demand for some apparel, but unfortunately a decent supplier has not been found.  Please contact me if you are interested in helping with designs. Anyone with some artistic talent would be great. 

I also would like to alter the way the Hanukkah Fair is fun. Please contact me if you have some retail experience and can advise. 

The gift shop is becoming more environmentally friendly.  We are switching to paper bags for purchases. If anyone has paper bags to donate, all sizes will be gladly accepted.

I can be reached at or 860-625-6618.
Thanks, Susan
