B'not Sherut Year 2 Update

Get ready to welcome Naama & Maayan!

Important: We need help welcoming Naama and Maayan when they arrive at the airport Tuesday evening, August 16.  We are also seeking volunteers to show them around town the following days.
We are also looking for dressers, linens, pillows, blankets, and a coffee table, as well as volunteers to schlep furniture.

If you'd like to join the fun and help welcome Naama and Maayan at the airport this Tuesday, August 16, please contact Shira. Shira Krebs / / 952-923-4753

Can't make it to the airport but you have kids who can make 'welcome pictures' to be placed in their apartment?  Please let Shira know, or drop the pictures and cards off with Rabbi Davis at shul.   

We are thrilled to launch our second year of the B'not Sherut program!
