This Week and Upcoming Dec 16

Dear Ohev Tzedek Congregants and Friends:

Shabbat services (Torah portion: Miketz) will begin at 9:45 am. This Saturday, the Kiddush will be sponsored in honor of Caitlyn Ryan’s last day as Office Manager.

Join us Monday, December 25, at 11 am for the Ohev Tzedek tradition of a typical Jewish December 25: movies and Chinese food!  We will again be showing two movies: A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Forum, featuring Jewish comedians in two lead roles (Zero Mostel and Phil Silvers), and The Nutty Professor, to honor the passing of comedy legend Jerry Lewis. Stick around between showings for a special lunch of house-made Chinese, prepared by our own Chef Art Einzig. Lunch will be served at 12:30 pm. Movie admission is free, but a minimal fee will be charged for the meal (menu and price TBD). Please RSVP to the office by Monday, December 18.

Shabbat services on December 30 will be held at Heritage Manor at 9:30 am; there will be no services at Ohev Tzedek.
