This year, Temple Shalom’s Purim Celebration will be held on Saturday evening, March 11th. In keeping with the festive nature of the holiday, everyone is encouraged, although not required, to come in costume. Each person coming in costume will be given due recognition.
The evening will begin at 6:30 P.M. with a pot-luck supper. Those planning to attend are requested to bring a dairy or fish dish (no shellfish) or salad. You don’t have to let me know in advance what you are bringing. Hamantaschen will be provided by the temple, so don’t bring a dessert.
Following the supper, song sheets and graggers will be distributed. We will sing Purim songs followed by the reading of the Book of Esther in English by members of the congregation. Congregants will make noise with their graggers and stamp their feet whenever the name of the villain, Ha-man, is read. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A READING PART, LET ME KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. PARTS WILL BE ASSIGNED ON A FIRST COME-FIRST SERVED BASIS.
ADMISSION IS FREE AND NO RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. HOWEVER, WE NEED SPONSORS TO HELP PAY FOR THE HAMANTASCHEN AND OTHER REQUIRED INCIDENTALS. If you would like to serve as a sponsor of the Purim Celebration, make a check out to Temple Shalom for $18 and write “Purim” in the memo portion of the check. Give the check to me personally or mail it to me at 1025 World Tour Blvd., Unit 201, Myrtle Beach, SC 29579. The names of all sponsors will be announced at the Purim Celebration and will be listed in the April issue of the temple bulletin.
Purim is a fun holiday. Don’t miss it.
Rabbi David Weissman
FROM THE PRESIDENT:
Two years ago we started the conversation about the future of Temple Shalom and the need for a permanent home, a building of our own. A great undertaking for a small congregation.
Psalm 121 Starts
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
from whence cometh my help
My help cometh from the Lord,
which made heaven and earth.
There are times that God moves in mysterious ways and implants a notion in the heads of us humans. Two of those humans were mem-bers of our congregation. One was our benefactor that pledged an in-terest free loan if we found a building. The other was a lady that thought enough of the work we were doing in South Carolina, that she named us in her will, for a sizable amount of money. This would enable us to renovate a building,
So dreams do come true .We have been in our own building since May 2015. I could not be more proud of what we have accomplished. We have held so many functions in the last twenty one months. I know Temple Shalom is doing well in this permanent location, but I must ask if each of us is doing enough to ensure the future of our congregation.
Our Sisterhood is doing do a great job under the leadership of Laurie Ward and her Board.
The Rabbi's services are always rewarding. As he stated in his email last week "It would be nice if we had a few more members attend the Saturday Shabbat Service. I will tell you our Rabbi is certainly doing his part and we must do our part The executive board is going to do it’s best to make sure that we have a minyan each week.
I know we all want a Synagogue that offers all that we can to every Jewish person that wants to attend Temple Shalom.
I look forward to greeting each of you around the Temple
