A ridiculous, true story of love, loss, and butterflies at The Top of the World

Sunday, May 21, 2017 at 4:00 PM
Tickets $15 at the door
“...a three-part exploration of life, love, commitment and the healing power of strawberry sandwiches, is a master class in how best to combine complex verbal material with perpetual physical motion. Dockery's style is so effective that he could entertain by saying just about anything; the fact he has gripping stories to tell just makes a deliriously good show darned near great.” Winnepeg Fee Press

May Item of the Easy Mitzvah

The I.T.E.M. for May is breakfast cereal!  The Shelter has been getting lots of donations of milk, and they don't want it to go bad, so they are asking for cereal to supplement their breakfasts and use the milk!

Thanks to all who donated Mexican food last month.  Here's a chance to do another easy mitzvah!  We'll take the cereal to the Shelter when we go to serve dinner there on May 28.  To help us serve dinner or for more information, please contact Barb Abrams at MazelMD@aol.com.

JEWISH FILM SERIES: DOING JEWISH - A STORY FROM GHANA

Who would expect to find Jews in Ghana? Not Gabrielle Zilkha, that’s for sure. But when she volunteered to work in Africa and found herself a lone Canadian Jew awash in a sea of Christians as the Jewish New Year approached, that’s exactly what happened. In remote Sefwi Wiawso, Ghana, she made a stunning connection with a group of people, dedicated and devout, who practiced special rites including circumcision and keeping Kosher dietary laws and had done so for centuries. Only recently had they discovered they were part of a worldwide religion with millions of followers — Judaism. Made over the course of five years, Doing Jewish: A Story from Ghana is a tribute to the bond created since that first Jewish holiday.

FRIDAY, MAY 19TH AT 6 PM • SUNDAY, MAY 21ST AT 4 PM AND 6:15 PM at ALL SAINTS CINEMA
GENERAL ADMISSION: $9 | STUDENTS AND TFS MEMBERS: $6

Volunteers Needed to Serve Shelter Meals

The Shelter LogoThe Shelter’s new facility, located at 2650 Municipal Way, is open and has a fully furnished kitchen, food serving area, and dining room. Every organization that has provided prepared meals in the past, will no longer be able to do so. Instead we are being asked to volunteer our services during their usually scheduled meal. Shomrei Torah and the Shomrei Torah Sisterhood have committed to performing this mitzvah on the fourth Sunday of the month.
