Welcome to Congregation Shomrei Torah of Tallahassee, Florida! We are the only congregation affiliated with United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism between Pensacola and Jacksonville. We offer traditional Judaism with an up-to-date flavor.
Here is a sampling of what you can find at Shomrei Torah:
Kitchen Renovation Starts in June
The Shomrei Torah kitchen is getting a complete makeover this summer, and to get ready the kitchen cabinets, pantry, refrigerator and freezer need to be packed up, cleaned up and moved out!
Moving Day happens on Sunday, June 5 from 9 AM to 4 PM. We are staffing two shifts of volunteers, with a lunch break in between shifts. Please use this form on the website to volunteer for one or more shifts.
Oneg Shabbat Volunteers Needed
Due to the aforementioned renovation, the kitchen will be completely closed and off limits for most of the summer. Sisterhood's regular Oneg Teams will be on hiatus during this time. Barbara Abrams, our dedicated Ritual VP, wants to find a few volunteers to bring a small, ready to eat (and drink) items to Shabbat services during the time that the kitchen is closed.
- Volunteers should spend no more than $20 each week.
- Volunteers will be reimbursed for their expenses. Just place your receipts in an envelope in the Sisterhood mailbox in the office. Be sure to include your name, email address, and phone number.
- Items must be ready to eat and drink. Plates, cups and utensils will be available.
- There will be no access to a sink or preparation area, refrigeration will not be available.
The opportunity is open to ALL members of Shomrei Torah. Please use this form to volunteer for this mitzvah!
I.T.E.M. of the Month
What is Shomrei's Favorite Spice?
Let's spice things up a bit this month!! Even though our kitchen is non-operational, let's make the Shelter meals a little less bland so that others can enjoy some tasty food. The next time you're at the grocery store, please pick up an extra bottle of your favorite spice. And the next time you're at Shomrei, drop it in the box in the lobby.
We'll take it to the Shelter when we go to serve dinner there on June 26. Doing a mitzvah is this easy!! And stay tuned next month to find out what is Shomrei's favorite spice!
