THANK YOU - The shul expresses its thanks to the following people who have contributed to the shul during the past week: Leib Lerner in honor of the Bar Mitzvah of Tzvi Shusterman and the Bar Mitzvah of Gabe Small. Aliyahs; Leib Lerner, Steven Pinsker

PARSHA IN THE PARK - Parsha in the Park with Rabbi Shusterman. Come to Davis Park for Family Fun! Enjoy a class for parents. While your children play. Starting on Shabbos at 5:45 P.M. at Davis Park (On Hobart Street between Murray Avenue and Wightman Street). All are welcome - with and without kids! If it is raining by 5:15pm or later, class is CANCELLED!!

THE KLEE - An organization called ACHI - American Communities Helping Israel (www.achi613.org) is asking that you support Israel and join the new BDS Project with "The KLEE" (www.theklee.org). Seeking to regain control of the narrative and change the terms, this program, entitled Buy Display Support, is an attempt to engender greater support for the State of Israel and to strengthen the bond between Israel and her friends around the world (sometime back, Rabbi Wasserman posted on Facebook this idea about reclaiming the narrative from the BDS haters of Israel, and he is happy that someone else had the same idea). American Communities Helping Israel, or ACHI, is asking you to think Israel and buy Israeli. The KLEE program (KLEE means a vessel or dish) encourages you to always have an Israeli product on your table, perhaps in a designated vessel, bowl or dish, and to encourage others to buy Israeli products on a regular basis. There are also cards which will be out at the shul for you to take to display in your home and to share with others. At Shaare Torah we regularly have Israeli products, but in the coming weeks at the Kiddush we will highlight them on a weekly basis in a special KLEE (soon as we get one).

DO YOU - have the calendar circled…..picked out that special dress and suit…..reserved the babysitter….made all the arrangements so that you can join us on Sunday, August 27th as we honor Dr. Yram and Merris Groff at our annual banquet. Invitations have been mailed so please return the response card asap so that we can hold that special table (although they are all special) and plan on seeing you at the dinner. Also, come prepared…we're having a Silent Auction which is always fun as we try to outbid each other for some super items.

DON'T BE LEFT STANDING FOR THE HOLIDAYS - Just kidding. There is a seat for everyone at Shaare Torah. But to reserve your seat for the High Holy Days please send back your seating form as soon as you can or email Linda in the office with exactly who you need seats for (including guests). If you have children who will sit with you in shule, mention them when you request seats. If you want your seats from last year, you can just say that. Let us know if you want different seats, and we will do our best to accommodate this. Remember that you need to have made dues arrangements for the coming year before we can reserve your seats.

YIZKOR BOOK - The letter and form for the Yizkor Book hopefully will be in your hands shortly. Please read the letter, complete the form and return it to the shul office. This is a very special project chaired by Rebbetzin Chani Shusterman and Rebbetzin Judi Wasserman. We need your help to make it a success.

FAVOR FROM LINDA TIMES TWO - When sending an e-mail to the shul office, please sign it with your full name. We hate to have to return the note asking who sent it. Unfortunately, we don't always recognize your e-mail name. Also, please mark on the memo line of your checks what it is for. With so many exciting events happening, we want to make sure we credit your check to what it is intended for. Thanks.

CHILDREN'S SIDDURIM - Shaare Torah's children's groups on Shabbat morning provide wonderful sights and sounds on Shabbat morning, especially the sight and sound of the children davening with their special children's siddurs. These books are loved and used every week and are now falling apart. We purchased new children's siddurim for the group and we are inviting our members and friends to underwrite and dedicate a siddur or two for the children to use. Each siddur is $18. Please contact Linda in the office if you are interested.

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

JEWISH WOMEN'S LEAGUE PITTSBURGH COMMUNITY DIRECTORY - If you are new to the community, know anyone who is, or have a change in contact information, please let us know as soon as possible. If you would like to place an ad in the 2018 edition of the directory, the deadline is approaching. If you would like to help solicit ads, we would be incredibly grateful. Please contact Judy Mendelson: 412-521-6498 or jnm514@verizon.net.

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!
