Dear Beth El Friends,

I am a member of a local chapter of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, which brings Muslim and Jewish women together to break down stereotypes, promote positive interactions, and engage in projects to help the community.

Along with our member Syd Mandelbaum's organization called "Rock and Wrap It Up, Inc.," we are participating in Hannah's Project, which distributes feminine hygiene products (not covered by SNAP) to women and at-risk teens in shelters, soup kitchens and pantries.

During November, we will collect the items listed on the flyer to be delivered to participating organizations in our area. The Rina Shkolnik Food Pantry, which is an affiliate of the Marion & Aaron Gural JCC, will be one of the beneficiaries of this collection.

The items can be deposited in the collection bin outside the entrance of the Sandrow Chapel or you can order them from the Amazon Wish List and they will be delivered for you to our chapter representative.

OUR PRIDE IS SHOWING!

We announce with great pleasure that Temple Beth El was presented with four prestigious Solomon Schechter Awards at a recent virtual gathering of the METNY District of United Synagogue. The awards recognized unique and creative outreach and engagement programs held during the pandemic. We take special note of the fact that we were the ONLY synagogue in METNY to receive this recognition for four distinct programs!
 
Awards were presented in the following categories for the programs indicated:
 
ADULT EDUCATION
THE WORLD OF TORAH – Rabbi Kupchik’s weekly Monday evening class featured Rabbis of different national backgrounds and residing in different cities and countries engaging in study and discussion of the weekly Torah portion with our congregants.
 
CHESED (Kindness) IN PANDEMIC TIMES
KEREN OHR – Our daily message of hope and inspiration that has been sent to every congregant since the start of the pandemic.
 
MEMBERSHIP ENGAGEMENT
HOME DELIVERY – If you couldn’t come to the synagogue, we brought the synagogue to you! Our deliveries of cheesecakes for Shavuot and High Holiday goodie bags for the New Year all served to strengthen our connection with our members.
 
TRADITIONAL PROGRAMS
SIMCHAT TORAH – The mailing of cards with brightly-colored Torah Scrolls allowed all of our members to take part in the traditional Simchat Torah Hakafot (processions) from home with each Hakafah being called by a different color!
 
We are extremely proud of the work that we have done as a community during these tough times. Kol HaKavod and thank you to everyone who has worked so hard and contributed to our outreach efforts. This recognition is well deserved!
