1. JAN MOTAS MEMBERSHIP MEETING – JAN 8
The next monthly membership meeting of MoTAS will be on Sunday, January 8.
The meeting will begin with breakfast at 8:45 am, with the meeting proper starting at 9:00 am. Frank has not yet provided the specifics activities for this meeting, but we will be talking about the January MoTAS Shabbat and gearing up for the MoTAS Annual Appeal.
2. SUPERBOWL SQUARES ARE ON SALE
The Monday Night Football season has concluded. The final results are posted to the Squares website (http://squares.tasnorthridge-motas.org/), and we congratulate all the winners. The MoTAS President is determining where the grants from this round will go (contact him if your temple organization has a needed).
Next up: The Superbowl. Now is the time to buy a Superbowl Square. The cost is only $25 per square, and you can help Temple Ahavat Shalom while potentially rewarding yourself. Yes, the price has been raised slightly to account for eliminating some biased squares, but the payout has also been raised: $230 for each quarter, and $460 for the final score. A full board of 91 squares pays out $1150 to players, and $1125 to MoTAS. You can find the rules of the game, register and pay online, or find a form that you can print and mail in, at http://squares.tasnorthridge-motas.org/.
