Dear [first_name],

As we approach the winter months, we are looking ahead to some incredible programming, experiences and opportunities. This Sunday, you can go shopping at the ECC Book Fair or join us at the synagogue for a special Bikkur Holim (visiting the sick) training. Applications are available for the Adult Education Retreat in February and for our Eastern European trip in June. This week, there are two great opportunities to help others by cooking in our kitchen, Response to Hunger on Monday and Cook for a Friend on Tuesday.

As always, as we look at the potential for snow in the near future, if you need any help managing with the weather, please don't hesitate to be in contact with me or with the office. We are here to help.

Shabbat Shalom,
