For the Kids
Looking for Letters
It's almost back to school for many of you. Oh well -- let's keep having holiday fun anyway. Answer one or more of these puzzles that have to do with the calendar and win a gift certificate for Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream.
Search for the letters that aren't there. Each letter appears once, but four do not appear at all. Find the missing letters, and then arrange them to spell a word that appears in these pages.
Mitzvah (Im)Possible -- Guide Dogs For The Blind
Justin Skootsky and Mathew Wunderlich have won our Mitzvah Contest.
They will each receive $10. Congratulations and great work, guys.
We learned about the Israel Guide Dog Center for the Blind (IGDCB) from a flier our temple publishes. We thought that raising money would be worthwhile because it combined helping Jews in Israel with the appeal of people's love for puppies. We were able to get See's Candy to donate lollipops. We sold the candy at temple after Sunday school.
We were in contact with Norman Leventhal, president of the IGDCB and sent him $1,000 to sponsor two puppies.
He asked us to help him develop a program for bar and bat mitzvah kids.
