Congregants Met with State Representatives to Discuss Key Issues

On Friday morning, September 13, Rabbi Perry, Security Committee members Alan Fidler and Janet Dubner, and Social Justice/Action Chair Susan McHugh met with Chelmsford State Representatives Jim Arciero, Tom Golden and Tam Gouveia to discuss security and safety concerns, racism and anti-semitism. We hope this will be the first of ongoing meetings with our state legislators to enable us to continue our dialogue about the needs of our congregation as well as state issues that impact us.

Pick Your Oneg! Please!

You choose the date, time, and service type

  • Want a Sunset Oneg?
  • Want to host the same night as your father’s Yarzheit?
  • How about hosting the same night as your child’s class dinner?
  • Away all winter?

Just let us know, and we’ll make it happen.

Every member is expected to host two Onegs. However, if you volunteer to be the coordinator, one Oneg will fulfill your obligation. All hosts are expected to help with set-up and clean-up along with supplying food. Please, do not just drop off something at the synagogue.

There is always a need for those of you willing to host some special services for Erev Rosh Hashana, Rosh Hashana children’s service, Simchat Torah service, or teacher appreciation Shabbat.  If you have very young children, the Tot Shabbat is for you.   However, if your children have outgrown it, please let us know.

Please send an email to oneg@congregationshalom.org with requests, as well as stating whether you are willing to be a Coordinator or not.  Requests may contain any/all of the following:

Service Type:

Tot, Family, Adult, MOCA, or Adult Sunset

Service Time:

There are Adult Sunset at 6pm, family at 7pm and a few others at 7:!5, there are no longer 8pm services.

Event:

Holiday or Special Shabbat (e.g., Shalomites Service, Grade 3 Shabbat Dinner, or a friend’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah weekend)

Unavailable dates, such as vacation or snowbird schedule:

“We’re in Florida from December 1 – May 31” … “Not during tax season”… etc.   We’ll then schedule you for a better time.

Music Preference:

Do you want Sue Horowitz or Shpiel

Specific Date:

Such as December Family Service or November 6 at 8 p.m.

The final schedule for services/special Shabbats is not available until late August.  Assignments are made during August and published in the September newsletter.  Therefore, requests can be made during early August.

If you do not request specific dates, you will be assigned to ones that we hope are appropriate; however, the best way to ensure that the assignment is correct is to let us know your preferences before being assigned. Once the assignment has been made, you are responsible for swapping your date, if necessary, with another member.

Thank you for your part in making our congregational Oneg program successful; it’s yet another part of Congregation Shalom’s tradition that we feel is special and unique.
