Mitzvah cooking, that is.  The Social Action Committee of Adath Emanu-El cooks on the second Tuesday of even-numbered months in our kitchen.  We cook for Providence House (a shelter), some of our own congregants in need, and for clients of Jewish Family and Children’s Services.  We fix ziti, salad and dessert for 36 people or more, and regularly need help purchasing the ingredients.  We need uncooked ziti, ricotta cheese, prepared pasta sauce, parmesan cheese, salad ingredients and cupcakes or cookies for dessert.   

Let us know that you can sponsor, or co-sponsor a session by purchasing the ingredients we need. Contact the Adath Emanu-El office or Cheryl Sperber at (856)824-0921 the week before our cooking sessions to let us know what you're bringing.   You’re even welcome to prepare the food with us in the synagogue kitchen (@ 7 PM).  Doing a mitzvah is a wonderful feeling.  Please join us now. 



Learning about Israel through its Poetry

Led by: Rabbi David                                                                                                     Dates: June 10, 17, 24, 11:00 am                                                                                     Fee: Members: free, Non-Members: $5.00

Join Rabbi David for three sessions devoted to the poetry of Israel.  What place have Israel's poets held in helping to shape the modern day State of Israel?  In a nation with a rich literary history, how do such writers as Zelda, Rahel, Yehuda Amichai, and others give us a new outlook on Israeli life?  Where do their writings intersect with Jewish text?  And, finally, how can their poems help us to make sense of the complicated realities of Israeli life? All are welcome.  All texts will be in English.  

Siddur Safari – A Look into our Shabbat Liturgy

Led by: Rabbi Kleinman                       

Dates: August 5, 12, 19, 7:00 pm                                                                                   Fee: Members: free, Non-Members: $5.00

Wikipedia defines a Safari as a trip to observe and photograph wildlife—or hiking and sight-seeing. Together we will take a “safari” through our Shabbat morning service and examine our prayers, their content, history, and how they look today. Each of the three sessions will focus on a different section of our service: Birchot HaShachar (morning blessings), Shema U’Virchotecha (Shema and its blessings) and the Amidah for Shabbat (central prayers). As a class, we will see where the wind blows us and decide together when we want to take a trip off-road or stay on the main path.
