SHALOSH SEUDOS - Shalosh Seudos this Shabbat is being sponsored by Ed and Arlene Lipsman in memory of the yahrtzeit of Arlene's stepmother, Serena Weiss Morris, of Blessed Memory and by Gary and Margaret Fischer on the occasion of the yahrzeit of Gary's father, Ted Fischer (Tuvyah Ben yoseph hakevi).

SHABBAT ZACHOR - On the Shabbat prior to Purim we read the second of the series of "Four Parshiot". We call this portion Parshat Zachor. The reading of this portion is the fulfillment of a Torah commandment to remember the evil, terroristic acts of the nation of Amalek against the Jewish people. It is incumbent upon all men and women to hear the portion read from the Torah. Parshat Zachor will, of course, be read as part of Torah reading on Shabbat at the early minyan, and the regular minyan, and the Sefardic minyan. It will also be read again at the end of the regular services in the main shul after Adon Olam.

SEFARDIC MINYAN - There will be a special addition of the Shaare Torah Sefardic minyan this Shabbat in honor of Shabbat Zachor.

THANK YOU - The shul expresses its thanks to the following people who have contributed to the shul during the past week: Stanley and Carolyn Greenfield in honor of the Bar Mitzvah's of Natan Marcus, Tzvi Shusterman and Gabe Small; Rebecca and Itay Raphael. Aliyahs; Joel Barney

KIDDUSH - LET'S MAKE THIS GREAT! - The Kiddush committee at Shaare Torah is working to move our Kiddushes up a notch! We need volunteers to help with all different aspects of Kiddush (preparing, cooking, setting up, etc.). If everyone pitches in just a few times a year, we will have Kiddushes with lots of food and variety. Please email Margalit: margalit.rosenkranz@chp.edu or call Linda in the office to let us know you would like to help and we will find a job that works for you. We are also asking for contributions to our Kiddush fund to enhance our weekly Kiddushes. As always, you can also sponsor a weekly Kiddush. Call the office for a list of sponsorship and menu options and fees or you can buy and prepare the food yourself. Thanks to Mickey Kohanbash and Aaron Siebzener for preparing Kiddush this Shabbat (Shabbat Zachor). Come to shul this Shabbat and enjoy the food and company!!

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!

AGEWELL RIDES & VISITS - We are currently seeking volunteers who are looking for occasional, brief - yet meaningful ways to help older adults in our community stay active, independent and connected - by offering them a short local ride or a friendly home visit. In 4 years, AgeWell Rides volunteers have provided over 12,000 miles of free, short rides for seniors - a distance that is almost halfway around the world! Amazing! And that short ride makes a world of difference to a person over 60 years of age who no longer drives - allowing them to get their groceries, stay healthy by seeing their doctor or dentist, or to feel good about themselves by getting their hair done or spending time with friends. You use your own car to drive them, when it is convenient for you. AgeWell Visits volunteers are caring and compassionate people of all ages, including families with children, teenagers who visit in pairs, and adults of all ages. If you enjoy chatting with people, listening to stories they have to share, helping with little household projects like watering plants or reading mail to someone whose eyesight is failing, then this might be the perfect volunteer match for you. In 3 years we have provided over 1000+ home visits to local seniors. Many friendships have developed over time and some older adults have been "adopted" as a cherished "Grandparent". Do you have room in your family and your life to become a special part of a lonely elder's life? If you can give one hour of your time each month to improve the lives of older adults in our community, you can help people stay independent and continue to live contented lives in their own homes. Please contact Ellen Leger at 412-422-0400 for more information on becoming a volunteer with AgeWell Rides & Visits! AgeWell is a part of JFCS Senior Services - Jewish Family and Community Services.
