Before we jump into the issue, MoTAS hopes that all the men of TAS and their families had a meaningful high-holyday day season. Thanks to the clergy, staff, and all volunteers for making this a lovely High Holy Days.
THIS COMING SUNDAY WE WILL BE BUILDING OUR SUKKAH. Mark your calendar for the Sunday October 16th, at a special early time — 8:00 AM. That morning, we’ll gather together under the watchful eye (and voice) of our Sukkah Foreman, Robert Levin, to build our Sukkah. Bring your hex wrenches, zip-ties, wire cutters, and most importantly, gloves, and come out and help. I find this one of the most fun activities of the MoTAS year—men working together to build something. Come join us for the fun. You can RSVP at http://motascybermaven.eventbee.com/event?eid=108947545.
Our October dining out will be on the first day of Sukkot (THIS MONDAY), so what better thing to do than to go get take-out BBQ from Rosies in Northridge, and bring it back to eat in your sukkah. Present a flyer when you pick it up, and MoTAS and the Caring Community will split 15% of your bill. Don’t have a sukkah, eat in the restaurant, and we’ll earn 20%. Rosie’s has moved from their location on Tampa to a new and improved location on Corbin, just N of Nordhoff St (i.e., N of the Target, not Lowe’s). There is more information, as well as a printable flyer (just click on the image) at http://www.tasnorthridge-motas.org/activities/dining. You will also find the flyer in the Temple foyer, in the October Menorah, and in the weekly eblasts.
Before “Weird Al” Yankovic there was another “Al” – Allan Sherman – who became an instant celebrity in 1962 when he sang and recorded his devilishly clever parody lyrics on the album “My Son, The Folk Singer.” His zany songs hit just the right nerve with the American public and his first three Warner Bros. albums shot to Number One. Linden’s show is a tribute to the man and his music. MoTAS and TAS Sisterhood will be hosting a joint concert in tribute to Allan Sherman on Saturday, October 29, at 8pm (with a dessert reception to follow).
Early Bird Pricing (ticketed before Saturday 10/15) is $25 for adults, $18 for children 18 and under. Between Saturday 10/15 and Friday, 10/28, tickets are $27 for adults. Tickets are $30 at the door. Sponsorship opportunities are available and provide the best seats.
For more information, including online ticketing, visit http://www.tasnorthridge-motas.org/activities/sherman/. You can also make reservations by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving a message at (641) 715-3900 Ext. 430235# .
This event is open to the general public. Please spread the word to all your friends who love Allan Sherman. It is sure to be a great night.
