Shabbat Morning News

Please keep up the great job of bringing food for our onegs and Shabbat kiddish lunches. Continue to stay creative! We can always use casseroles, pasta sides and fruit. Cookies or cake are nice for dessert too. We know you love lunch after services, so please continue to be meritorious by being a bringer of food. 

Note: all food must be meat/meat by-product free. Check each and every ingredient, including oils found in the food items or used in cooking. Only vegetable oils are allowed. Foods must be pareve, vegetarian or vegan. If you find reading ingredient labels challenging, only buy products with a hekshur on it. (That’s the symbol that tells that the product is kosher). Questions? Contact Joyce Folman at shul or Rabbi Rosenstein at info@tbstemecula.org.

Friday Night News

Who would like to host our August pot luck? The weather should be nice; we could do it outdoors if someone has a backyard or club house/rec center available. Email info@tbstemecula.org know if you’d like to be our August host.

The Miller Program – Introduction to Judaism class will start after Sukkot!!!

Rabbi Rosenstein encourages people who wish to convert as well as Jewish people who have no need to convert to take the 18 week course to educate themselves or refresh their knowledge of the basic history, concepts and theology of Judaism. If you are curious about Judaism, want to learn how to read the squiggles and wiggles of Hebrew and come to understand the gift of the Jews, then this is the course for you. All curious people are welcome.

What is Spiritual Care?

Spiritual care offers a type of support that recognizes and responds to the needs of the human spirit when faced with trauma, ill health or sadness brought about by changes in life style, circumstance, or the loss of a loved one. Whether you need help finding peace where you are in life or figuring out the next step, spiritual care offers care seekers a place to express their feelings and find support during times of challenge. Our weekly spiritual care group called Share and Care meets Wednesdays from 1-3 pm. The fee is $10 per session.

Individual confidential sessions are available by appointment with Rabbi Rosenstein on a weekly or as needed basis. Please contact Rabbi Rosenstein directly for immediate availability. $50 fee per session.
