YOUTH DEPARTMENT NOTICES
SHABBAT GROUPS: In this
week's Parsha, Parshat Chayei Sarah, Avraham sends Eliezer to find a wife for
Yitzchok and when Eliezer comes across Rivka, she does chessed not just with
him but with his camels as well. From this he realizes that Rivka is the
perfect girl for Yitzchak. This week in shul is the "Shabbat of
Chesed". Starting from the moment that Shabbat starts on Friday night, you
can earn tickets for either answering questions correctly or for any act of
kindness that you do in the shul or at home over Shabbat. At the end of groups
on Shabbat, there will be a raffle with all the tickets you accumulate and
EVERYBODY WINS! But the catch is you have to be in groups to win! You don't
want to miss groups this Shabbat! See you all there!
