UPCOMING EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES AT REFORMATION
Sunday, January 28 – Annual Congregational Business Meeting following worship
Sunday, January 28th at 11 a.m. – Meet Judy Singer author of In the Shadow of Alabama at Congregation Torat El. $10 per person with a light bagel brunch. Plan to read the book prior to attending. It is a deeply personal novel based on the experience of the author’s father, a Jewish boy from Brooklyn, who as a master sergeant during WWII, is put in charge of an all-African American platoon in the segregated South. The flyer is on the kiosk in the gathering area with more details
Summer 2018 – YES – SUMMER 2018 (it’s the 1st day of winter by an hour as I write this!) We’ve received the Cross Roads Camp and Retreat Center full summer camp schedule. There are a few new camps and all of the very many choices of old favorites. Please be sure to check out the flyers in the gathering area. There is something for everyone – all ages – all seasons – not just summer!!!
