Simchat Torah/Consecration/Potluck & Other Events this weekend

Where can you have more fun learning about Judaism than learning it through nature on a farm? 

That's what Living Tree Alliance is all about. And this weekend, as we reach the conclusion of our Sukkot holiday, LTA is having Sukkot on the Farm, once again, with all sorts of fun and activities for young and old. Saturday night our own Rabbi Edleson is leading a "Shirtan" Havdalah and Sunday morning Saragail is leading a drumming circle. There's food, there's Klezmer, dancing, craft projects and more going on all weekend. You can even stay overnight under the stars:

BTW, there is a charge depending on events, so check the website

Also this weekend, for all you ladies, Sisterhood is having it's kick-off brunch Sunday morning from 9:30-11:30 with Rabbi Edleson as our special guest speaker. The topic: Growing Up with a Jewish Mother. You do not have to be a Sisterhood member to attend, we'd love to have you. As Marjie Sheppard of Sisterhood says: A little nosh. A little schmooze. A little quality with some Jews.*
(*Notice it says 'some' Jews because not all our Sisterhood members are Jewish; all women, or people identifying as such, are welcome.)

If you are in town this Saturday night*, our Brotherhood is sponsoring a dinner in the sukkah, all are invited. So for any of you gentlemen not a Brotherhood member, I'm sure they'd love to have you join. This dinner is open to anyone in the congregation, not just men or Brotherhood members. (*Postponed from Tues. night due to rain)

Don't forget our Pot Luck dinner and Simchat Torah service Sunday at 5:00 
Congregation Ruach Hamaqom, Jan Salzman's Burlington congregation, is joining us in this joyous celebration.
