Come As You Are:  Friday evening Shabbat services are casual and begin at 6pm throughout the summer.  Whenever possible, services will be held outside.

Volunteers needed for Midnight Run with Bridges: As you know, each year our STISY teens deliver food and clothing to the homeless in NYC.  We can ALL participate in this mitzvah by helping Bridges with deliveries in Newark, Irvington and NYC during the summer months.   Read below in the Tikun Olam section for more information.

TSTI Golf Tournament: The TSTI Golf Tournament is now scheduled for Thursday, July 7.  Lunch starts at 11:30am followed by a 1pm tee time.

TSTI in Israel – December 2011: 

Join Rabbi Cohen and fellow TSTI members for a ten day family trip.  For details, itinerary and tour pricing, please contact Sunny Seglin.

For more about these and other items, log on to TSTI.org.



Bridges Midnight Runs this summer: Adult and high school volunteers are needed to deliver food and clothing to the homeless in Newark, Irvington and NYC on Saturdays and Sundays this summer.  For details on dates and how to volunteer, please visit the Bridges website.

Kids looking for summer opportunities? Check out the Temple Mitzvah Directory.

Hunger doesn’t go away just because School is out. It is more important than ever to remember to BRING ONE:  Bring a non-perishable food item EACH TIME YOU COME TO TEMPLE to be donated to the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges.  And maybe even make a few special trips now that our Schools are not in session!

Although many of us have different schedules in the summer, we still need to ensure a full contingent ofvolunteers at the Interfaith Food Pantry on the fourth Wednesday of every month.  If you can help over the summer, please contact  Janet Schwamm.  Kids (age 6 and up) are welcome to help as well!

Transportation is available for congregants who need a ride to services and temple events.  Contact Alice Forman at (973)736-3467 if you need a ride or if you can offer a ride to others.

Parasha Korach

Numbers 16:1 – 18:32

This week’s parasha deals with a rebellion against Moses and Aaron brought by Korach, a Levite, and two others, Dathan and Aviram.  They are joined by 250 distinguished members of the community.  God causes the earth to open and swallow Korach, Dathan and Aviram to end the mutiny.  The 250 chieftains are consumed by fire.  God tells Moses to hammer the fire pans of the rebels into plating for the altar as an eternal reminder. The community becomes angered again, but Aaron is able to prevent a plague against the people by offering his fire pan and incense.  Aaron’s staff miraculously blossoms and brings forth almonds as a sign that his priesthood has been divinely ordained.
