PRE-PESACH MEALS - As a service to our members and to the community, once again this year Shaare Torah will provide Pre-Pesach meals on Shabbat Hagadol, Friday night April 7 and Shabbat afternoon April 8.. Reservations and payment for the meals are due by Monday, April 3.

MAOT CHITTIN/MATZA FUND - With Pesach approaching please keep in mind the words with which we begin the Seder, and remember those in our community who are financially disadvantaged and need assistance with the costs of preparing for Pesach. Maot Chittin, or the Matza Fund, is an ancient, hallowed tradition that the Jewish people embrace as one of its dear and beloved traditions. Rabbi Wasserman is collecting and will be distributing these funds between now and Pesach. Please give as generously as you are able and send your check for Maot Chittin/Matza Fund, payable to Shaare Torah Special Fund, to the shul or give it to Rabbi Wasserman. When including multiple checks please specify if it is for Maot Chittin/Matza Fund or if it is for the sale of chometz.

MATZA PICK-UP - If you ordered matza, it is at the shul. There will be matza pickup times posted in next week's bulletin for the week before Pesach. However, if you wish to get your matza earlier, contact Rabbi Wasserman.

USED SHOW DRIVE - As you clean for Pesach and do spring cleaning, please keep an eye for any unwanted shoes you may have and bring them to the shul. There will be a box in the lobby of the shul for collection of used shoes. These shoes will be used by Hurry Home Hounds (http://www.hurryhomehounds.com/) to benefit impoverished people in underdeveloped counties, as well as their own work placing retired racing greyhounds as pets in homes, through Funds2orgs.

BNEI AKIVA SNIF - Snif meets from 4:30 to 5:30 on Shabbat afternoon at Shaare Torah. It is for girls in grades 4-8 and boys in grades 2-8. Hope to see you all there!

YAHRTZEITS - During the month of Nissan, from March 28 through April 27 (Rosh Chodesh Iyar) we do not recite Tachanun. Therefore, we do not say the memorial prayer, E-l Maleh Rachamim (except at Yizkor on the last day of Pesach). If you observe a Yahrtzeit during that month we will recite the memorial prayer prior to March 28. Please make sure to come to shul on a day of Torah reading, or let the office or Rabbi Wasserman know and he will take care of it for you.

FAVOR FROM LINDA - When sending an e-mail to the shul office, please sign it with your full name. We received one asking us to relay a message on to a member family, but they did not sign it and we did not recognize the e-mail address. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated

LADIES NAVI CLASS - The Ladies Navi Class meets on Shabbat at 5:30 P.M. at the home of Tootsie Markovitz.

AS YOU CLEAN FOR PESACH, 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!
