Shabbabaque — our first summer Shabbat Bar-B-Que — is THIS FRIDAY, June 15th, and EARLY BIRD PRICING ENDS TODAY (WEDS) AT 6PM. Remember: If you’re a dad in the TAS youth education programs — Religious School, ECEC, or the Infant and Toddler Center, remember that with one paid registration, the entire family can come.

Shabbabaque starts with an outdoor service in the TAS amphitheatre at 6:15pm, featuring music from our rockin’ TAS House Band. This is followed at 7:15pm by a delicious barbeque dinner. Meat items will include turkey burgers, beef burgers, and hot dogs. Vegetarian items will include vegetarian patties, broccoli roasted with garlic, and baked potatoes. Afterwards, there will be a wonderful Sisterhood oneg. The full menu is on the Shabbabaque event page. Our goal is for everyone to be happy.

2. TUE JUN 19 – DINING OUT AT MARIAS ITALIAN

Would you like an easy way to help MoTAS financially? How about taking your family to dinner. The MoTAS “Dining Does Good” allows you to go out to dinner, and have the restaurant donate a portion of your check support the Men of TAS. Our June “Dining Does Good” will be Tuesday, June 19, at Maria’s Italian in Northridge. You can find a flyer for the event at https://wp.tasnorthridge-motas.org/activities/dining/.

We really encourage you to come and support these events: we raise a little extra funds for our work, but more importantly, we come together and break bread as a Temple family on a regular basis. It is a real joy to walk into a neighborhood restaurant and see your Temple friends, to sit down and share a table and talk. This is the heart and goal of MoTAS: Building Relationships.

3. FOOTBALL SQUARES ON SALE NOW

Summer is Football Squares season! It’s an easy way to support TAS and possibly win a little back. $50 gets you a random square on the board, where randomized rows and columns have the digits 0 through 9. During Monday Night Football season, match the last digit of the home and away team scores in a quarter and win! More information, complete rules, online signup, and signup forms are available at http://squares.tasnorthridge-motas.org, or contact Bob Levine (818-271-1282, tasboblevine@gmail.com) or Kathy Pullman (gridmaven@tasnorthridge-motas.org). Forms will soon be available in the Temple Foyer. Funds raised by the Sports Squares programs are used to fund specific needs that are often unfunded, and expenditures are distinct from MoTAS’ general fund contributions. Registration closes at 6:00 PM on Saturday, September 8.

As you recall, the net proceeds for the Football Squares goes to support TAS projects that cannot be funded, either adequately, or at all, by current temple budgeting. It is your support that makes these things happen. As a result of your participation and support, the temple has had a major overhaul to the kitchen, and we have been able to offer more campership funds to allow our youth to go to Jewish camp in the summer.

Please support us this year, as you have in the past. All the information about the game, as well as sign-up instructions, are available at our website:

http://squares.tasnorthridge-motas.org

We hope you can see your way to be part of our team this season. You might win some money, but the temple is the big winner. A warm thank-you from the Men of TAS.

4. SUMMER PLANNING

At our June meeting we discussed ways to get more men involved with the Men of TAS, especially the younger men with dads. We have two potential opportunities during the summer, as we don’t use our Second Sunday slots for meetings. A number of ideas were discussed, from a family picnic, to temple work days, to family outings. All we need is someone to champion and lead the activity. If you would be interesting in helping to run such an activity, contact your humble Weekly editor, faigin@cahighways.org, and I’ll get the information to the correct MoTAS Officer.

Additionally, “watch this space” for announcements of upcoming events, such as our Pancake Breakfast at the start of religious school, our Sukkah Construction, and our forthcoming Poker Tournament.
