Shaloha,

We invite you to join us this Saturday for Shabbat Services at our home at the Mauna Lani at 10:30am.  The torah portion is Mishpatim, which addresses the laws that are handed down including the 10 commandments. What does it mean to be a nation of laws? An important discussion in current times. Aviva Plaut and Vivienne Aronowitz will lead the services, Aviva and Vic Greenspan will read from the Torah and Natalie Guerin will do the drash. This will be the last shabbat that Natalie will be with us before she makes aliyah.  We wish her well.
Potluck guidelines: No pork or shellfish, please. Main and side dishes, fruits and vegetables appreciated.

This month we celebrate the birthdays of Marvin Feldman and Vivienne Aronowitz and honor the yahrtzeits of Judy and Jerry Rothstein, the parents of Natan and Anne Rothstein.  Please send me your birthdays, anniversaries, mazel tov opportunities and yahrtzeits as we would like to acknowledge them.
