Rabbi Lebow Celebration Committee Forming Now!

Bring us your talent, your mad skills and your enthusiasm. April 18, 2020 is the date we have chosen to honor our beloved Rabbi Lebow, and we need your help to make this year’s fundraiser/celebration the most epic of all time.  There are many ways that you can help, and we would be thrilled to have you join us on this joyous mission. We are currently filling volunteer committee positions, ranging from publicity to décor, and anything in between.   If you have ever been the recipient of Rabbi Lebow’s kindness, wisdom, or sense of humor, now is the time to let him know how much you appreciate all he has done for Temple Kol Emeth.

Please contact Carolyn Shapiro  at carolynshapiro@hotmail.com, or Janet Mills  at jcmills1@gmail.com. for more information.

High Holy Day Campaign

Special.  The word is defined by, "better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual."

Why is TKE special to you?   Your Jewish home means something different for everyone.  Is it your social outlet where all your friends are?  Is it a spiritual center for you to pray and  reflect?  Or perhaps it is a place where you can see your children thrive in a Jewish environment?   There are countless other reasons to love TKE.

The High Holy Day Matching Fund campaign supports our special Jewish Home in several ways.  From all those happy times in our lives to the times in need, this fund will help support our  community.   Several TKE families believe this and want to know you do to.  If you’ll donate any amount, $18, $180, $1,800 or more, they have offered to match your donation.

Tell us why TKE is special to you and donate today at clicking here or sending in a check to the TKE office.   We greatly appreciate your generosity.

Second Family Chavurah Comes to TKE!

Introducing....Holiday Chavurah!  This is for singles, empty nesters, and those with little family in the area who often wish for an invitation for Chanukah, Passover and other holiday festivities.  We will take turns hosting and matching up for fellowship and celebration, starting with Erev Rosh Hashanah dinner on September 29.

The leader for this group is Lori Corley and she can be reached at lscorley63@gmail.com   To ensure we include you in this newest Chavurah, Lori requests you to email her the following information:  name, contact email, preferred phone number, pet allergies, special dietary needs, and other special needs.  Also, please indicate if you would like host our first event as well.  

Help our Garden Grow!

Over the last several years, many of you have helped to make the Children’s Memorial Garden a site of quiet reflection and life cycle events.  The Garden has been used for youth group and adult programming, religious school classes, as well as weddings.  If you’ve not visited it lately, we encourage you to do so.  The Janet and Tony Mills Family Amphitheater, the fountain generously donated by Dr. Morris Miehl, and the plantings make it a lovely location for events, or just to rest and meditate.

TKE is seeking people to take up the mantle to make sure that the Garden continues to grow and is maintained as a site for all to use.  Construction at the Garden is complete, but there are still many bricks to inscribe, and there remains the possibility to add additional plantings including more daffodils to be planted by students and parents from our religious school.  

If you love the Garden and would like to help, please contact Jonathan Warner at jsw0467@bellsouth.net for details.
