Please join Rabbi Sklarz and Cantor Lipton for a special Shabbat, as we consecrate the newest members of Greenwich Reform Synagogue, followed by a pot luck dinner. If you would like to participate in the dinner, please contact Louis Salzer at email@example.com
No Purim is ever complete without a Purim shpiel – a play of the Megillah (story of Purim).
But a shpiel needs actors! Without great fanfare, need to memorize/recite lines (as narrators will be on hand for those who are shy to speak) or much rehearsal time – at least for this year – I would love for us to present a short, entertaining re-enactment of the Purim story to be performed on Friday, March 9th at the GRS Family Purim Service.
This is NOT BROADWAY! The aim is to enjoy! Adults or kids who are interested, please let me know, by contacting Erin Thomas, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to all who are "ready for their close-ups" to join on the stage of GRS,
Rabbi Andrew R. Sklarz, MA, MSW, RJE

Annual GRS Sisterhood Dinner
Thursday, January 19 at 6:30 P.M.
All members of the GRS Sisterhood* are invited to attend a fun, free, delightful dinner at the home of Sandy Soule, at 18 Lakeview Drive in Riverside, at 6:30 PM on Thursday, January 19th, 2012. You'll enjoy good food and wine, plus great conversations with new friends and old.
This GRS Sisterhood-sponsored event is free, but please bring a donation of non-perishable food that we'll share with the less fortunate through our local food pantry, Neighbor to Neighbor.
Please RSVP to the GRS office: Email email@example.com or call 203-629-0018 so we'll know how much food and wine we'll need.
*Not sure if you're already a GRS Sisterhood member or not? You can check with the temple office to be sure. You probably are, but if not, the annual dues are only $36.
In addition, there will be a special dedication of memorial plaques in memory of the late Suzanne and Edward Baron Cohen.
All those with November, December and January anniversaries will be called to the bimah for a special blessing.
As with every first Friday of the month, the warmth of the GRS Family Service followed by a festive pot-luck Shabbat Dinner will fill the sanctuary and social hall of GRS. As with every Family Service, we will call upon all those celebrating birthdays to the bimah (with gifts for our children) and, of course, invite all the children – my personal favorite part of the evening – to join me on the steps of the bimah for a special Shabbat story! The service will be enhanced by the voices of B'nai Shir, the GRS K-4 choir.
As we well know, the Family Service at GRS is for the young at heart of all ages!
Please let Administrative Assistant, Erin Thomas, know that you will be with us and contact Louise Salzer, our dinner coordinator, to let her know what you will be bringing.
I look forward to our being together for the first Family Service of 2012!
