Bringing Our Temple Family Together
Members have been asking Temple to alert them when fellow congregant families experience the death of loved ones. In response, Temple is implementing a new alert program via email. In the event of a death, members will receive an email with the name of the affected congregants, plus any funeral, memorial, shiva or donation information provided. Of course members can opt out of having notifications sent on their behalf in the event of a death, as well as opt out of receiving any death notification emails.

Food Justice: Do You Know From Where Your Next Meal Will Come?
A Community-Wide Social Justice Weekend: November 14-16
Temple is proud to spearhead a community-wide social action weekend focused on the issue of food justice in our city and even our own neighborhoods. What does it mean to be "food insecure?" What are the sources of great disparity between "haves" and "have-nots" when it comes to such an essential part of daily living? How can we be advocates for change?
We'll be hosting a series of events over this powerful weekend, beginning with:
FEED! Dinner #2: “Le’echol - Judaism’s Interest in Food Justice”
November 14 • Seattle
6:00pm • Rock Shabbat
7:00pm • FEED! Dinner
Our FEED! series continues with a lecture on food justice, and the exciting opportunity to hear from the CEO of Northwest Harvest, Shelly Rotondo. Northwest Harvest is the model for what food banks and organizations combating hunger should look like, and she is a rock star in this realm.
For all events see our flier.
