Souper Shabbat Dinner: A Competitive Meal in One Course*
With the change of the clocks, candle lighting will be at 4:50 P.M. on November 9. Why rush to make dinner when you can just make reservations? Like every year, Shaare Torah will be hosting a Shabbat dinner for the first early Shabbat of the Season. This year, we couldn't decide on what soup to serve, so we want you to decide. Sign up with your best soup recipe, cook it for the crowd, and enjoy some friendly competition. November 9th, 6pm. Adults: $18 Children (3-11): $12 Family Max: $70. RSVP by calling (412-421-8855) or emailing (Office@ShaareTorah.net) the Shul.

TALLIT KOL HANEARIM - It was wonderful to see all the babies, toddlers and children, who were called up to the Torah together on Simchat Torah, standing under the big Tallit and reciting the blessings of the Torah. For this "Kol Hanearim" aliyah we spread out above the heads of the children the huge Kol Hanearim Tallit donated by the Strauss and Small families (the families of Jason and Stefanie Small). The Tallit normally hangs on the north wall of the main sanctuary and on the Tallit there are names of many of the children of the congregation embroidered - the beautiful and patient handiwork of Adina Berzofsky, Ilana Levari, Rebbitzen Judith Wasserman and Devorah Young. It was especially touching watching the children scan the Tallit, and find their own names upon it. Now, while the Tallit is down for a few weeks after Simchat Torah, you have the opportunity to add names of children to the Tallit. Each name is $72. Please contact the shul office if you wish to add names. A needlepoint Atara (crown or collar) will be created for the Tallit in the future.
LET'S FILL THE YELLOW BARREL - We hope to continue to help the Sq. Hill Food Pantry by filling the yellow barrel in the entrance hall. Keep in mind that there is always a list of needed items. Canned soup, cold cereal, pasta, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, tuna, 100% fruit juice, bar soap, laundry and dish detergents, disinfecting wipes, diapers, and shampoo are always needed. We are proud of our work in the community helping those who need. Please fill our yellow barrel when you are able. Many people thank you for your participation!

THE SIYUM - On Yom Kippur, in his Kol Nidrei remarks, Rabbi Wasserman announced a congregation-wide (and beyond) project to get everyone involved in Torah study, working toward a siyum (celebration of completion) on Tana"ch, Mishna, and Talmud (and perhaps other works) that would involve all the men, women, and youngsters of the congregation. This siyum would be timed to coincide with the next worldwide Daf Yomi siyum, which will be in the first week of January 2020 (in 16 months). Stay tuned for more information and get ready to be a part of a great endeavor and a great event.
