Geshem Fund Appeal
Each week’s newsletter contains a small section about the Geshem Fund – the Kehilla’s Chesed Fund. This fund is administered by the Rabbi alone, and provides aid to members of our Kehilla who are facing financial challenges. The holidays always place an additional stress upon the Geshem Fund to help people celebrate with joy and dignity. As of now, the Geshem Fund holds no fundraising events, so funds are raised by the Rabbi alone. Please help us help others! Donations can be given to the Rabbi, any of the Kehilla officers or to the office. If you make the check out to Ohel Shalom, be sure to note Geshem Fund in the Memo line so that the funds will be properly allocated. Thank you!

Purim Cards to Help Support the Geshem Fund
With Purim around the corner, consider honoring a friend with a Mitzvah instead of some more candy/Chametz. You can come pick up some elegant Purim cards, which will support the Geshem Fund. Cards can be purchased at $18 for 10 cards or individually $2 each. Checks should be made out to the Geshem Fund with “Purim cards” written in the memo. If you are interested in these beautifully designed cards, please contact Ayelet in the office or Tani Seruya.

Purim!!!
Purim is just around the corner! See “Upcoming Events” for more information.
