      Help feed the hungry at festive season
 RCOS has been scheduled to work at the Kennedy House soup kitchen on Sunday, March 31. This is Easter
  Sunday and also falls during Passover. If you would like to work at the soup kitchen that day or if you are
interested in making a donation, please call Barbara Rosenzweig at 775-5383. We are asking for donations to
                 defray the cost of the special meal we would like to prepare for the holiday




                 Looking for some bakers
   Would you like to learn how to make a challah, how to make just the right
  braid? Iris Lonker has graciously agreed to bake our own challahs for our
Shabbat services. But she needs help. We are looking for some people to meet
  with Iris once a month in the Temple kitchen to bake challahs. Now is your
      chance to learn the fine art of challah making and a time to kibbitz.
           Call the Temple office to find out when the next challah making will take place.
