Over the past few weeks we've been cleaning out the main office, the coat closet, and the lobby, and we've found lots of forgotten items in the process: tallitot, tallit clips, tefillin, eyeglasses, children's books, haggadot, jewlery, umbrellas, a Girl Scout vest, a kittel, and more. The items are on display along two tables in front of the sanctuary. The items will remain there until the Annual BBQ on Sunday, September 1. After the BBQ, any remaining items will be donated or discarded. Please take a look and take home anything that's yours. Thanks!
