*** We’ve had some challenges with personnel in the office this year. Unfortunately, we were not able to get a letter out in time to ask for the names of those who left us this past year. As a result, the new booklets were printed with only the same names as last year. Your loved ones who passed away in 5782 will be included in the booklets thanks to the efforts of Rebbetzin Rachel.


**** The Golden Dreidel in Tustin will take our orders for Lulav & Estrog sets. We need to have our orders in by Monday, October 3, by 3:00pm PT.
