Temple Beth Or's Matzah Ball

     You won't be sick of matzah if you come to Temple Beth Or's Matzah Ball  on Friday, April 29, starting at 6:00 pm.  We will open with our Kabbalat Shabbat Interactive Service at 6:00 pm featuring Marc Rossio. Youngsters will play and pray ball, even enjoying a little ballroom dancing.  Our Service will be followed by a 6:45 pm potluck dinner featuring Nelly's Bolivian Charcoal-Grilled Rotisserie Chicken ($5 per family).  Please bring a side dish or dessert appropriate for Passover.  Matzah balls also welcome!


2016 Annual Meeting Notice

     After functioning for over thirty years in accordance with the current Code of Regulations, and after surveying a number of like-type Reform congregations in the Midwest, the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors has determined that the proposed Amendments to the Code of Regulations will facilitate through succession an orderly transition of the Presidency; will create a more effective and cohesive Board of Directors; and will enable more congregational leadership and involvement in the various Temple committees.
