Bagels will be delivered hot and fresh from the Hot Bagel Bakery to the Temple.   Prices as follows: Bagel: $1.50; Bagel with butter  or cream cheese $2.50. Fliers will be available at the Temple if you wish to place an order. You can also email me with your order at alvingoldm@aol.com  Remember , EVERY BAGEL you purchase will help local families in need. Shout out to Mens Club members: I will need a few good men to help on the day of the sale. PLEASE contact me at alvingoldmn@aol.com

Oneg Sign Up

Dear TBM Family,

Hello all and Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are excited about the year ahead. And during this year, we hope you can help with the shopping for the Friday night onegs!

Since we all food shop during the week, it is a very simple mitzvah to pick up a few extra items to drop at the temple. You can donate these items and be listed as the sponsor for that week, or you can get reimbursed by Sisterhood for your purchases, up to $40, if you would like. We need each temple family to pick one week during the year to do the shopping for this very special weekly event. There are several bar/bat mitzvahs and class services taking place at TBM over the next few months, so there are only 8 dates that need to be shopped for. If you have not yet participated in the Oneg shopping program, please look at the dates and sign up for whichever is most convenient.

Please click on the link below to see Shabbat dates for which shopping needs to be done. Dates for January through March are listed. Dates for the second quarter of 2019 will be posted by March 15th. Please follow the shopping instructions on the signup page.

**If your child is being Bar/Bat Mitzvah you are automatically signed up for the oneg the evening prior. Also, evenings of Religious School Class services, each family from the class is expected to bring an item for the Oneg. For this reason, these dates are not listed on the sign up page.**

If you would like to reserve a date after March 31st, or if you have a question, please contact Debbie Gerbman at dgerbman@comcast.net .
Have a great day!
TBM Sisterhood
