Temple Israel membership weekend set for July 26-28

From Friday July 26 to Sunday July 28, Temple Israel will host a membership weekend to encourage current and prospective members to share Shabbat together. On Friday evening current TI members will invite prospective members to their homes for Shabbat dinner and then accompany them to Kabbalat Shabbat services and Oneg Shabbat at Temple Israel in Winter Springs. The Friday night Shabbat dinners will include at least two longterm Temple Israel members, a recent member and prospective members. This will give the prospective members an opportunity to get to know more about Temple Israel.

Prospective members will also be encouraged to attend Shabbat services with current members on Saturday morning followed by a Kiddush luncheon and a “Judaism in a Nutshell” discussion with Rabbi Joshua Neely. There will also be a Tot Shabbat program run by Jen Cohen at 11:30 a.m. On Saturday evening prospective members are also encouraged to participate in a lively musical Havdalah service followed by a wine and cheese and dessert reception.

Temple Israel also will host Sunday morning services followed by a bagel breakfast and a movie sponsored by the Adult Education Committee. The gift shop and the playground will be open. While it is possible to attend all of the weekend’s festivities, everyone is encouraged to attend at least one or more of the events, says an event planner.

If you would like to host a Shabbat dinner or if you would like to attend a Shabbat dinner, please contact the office at 407-647-3055. Each host will have two member families and one prospective family joining them. For further information about this event please call Elliott Davis at 561-573-5779 or email him at elliottdavisfjmc@aol.com.
