September is crazy with the first three Sundays falling over Labor Day weekend or over the High Holy days. So, how about rebuilding your calorie count with us on the Thursday after Yom Kippur, September 20 by joining the Men of TAS for a welcoming dinner meeting on Thursday September 20 as our first monthly meeting of the year. It will be at: Golden Hunan (in the private room), 10334 Reseda Blvd, Northridge.
The dinner will start at 6pm and will cost $20 per person. The meal will include soup, five entrees, and an ice cream dessert with tax and tip included. The entrees will have no pork or shrimp. Please invite your wife and temple friends to join us; your preference as to which one sits next to you. Please bring your $20 in cash. This will be our 2018-2019 introductory meeting so we will have a little bit of announcements, a little bit of news and the first glimpse of our new secret signal for the Men of TAS.
Please RSVP by Sunday September 16 with the number attending by replying to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Howard Miller at (818) 993-0796. If you are new to the Men of TAS or even just to TAS, we look forward to meeting you. Let me know if more info is needed or if you have questions.
On Sunday September 23 the Men of TAS will be exhibiting our annual precision teamwork and construction comradery in building the Sukkah for our TAS school children. Come by 8:10 and we will have bagels and cream cheese along with a variety of drinks before we start at 8:30. If you are the parents of religious school kids and would like to help, we welcome your assistance. We will have the Sukkah ready by 10:30 in time for use by the kids and their teachers. All you need are work gloves but an Allen wrench would also be handy. There is no height requirement but old basketball players are a big help. Just show up on the south patio and ask for Howard or Mike.
MoTAS NEEDS VOLUNTEERS/PLANNERS/DONATIONS: MoTAS, along with the Men of TRZ, is organizing a big Texas Hold-em Poker Tournament on Sunday October 21. We hope to have 120 players, so please plan on coming and ask all of your poker playing friends to participate. Anyone, male or female, who likes poker will have a great time. We also have opportunities for sponsorship recognition, so please help us find sponsors. If you don’t play, we need a few guys to help with our registration desk and to serve food and drinks. We are also looking for raffle and auction items that help us make additional money. So, even if you don’t play, we can use your help in making this event a success. We are all proud of what the Men of TAS does with our financially supported projects, so please find a way to help us execute this fundraising effort.
POTENTIAL PLAYERS: You are invited to participate in the 2018 Men of TAS (Temple Ahavat Shalom) and Men of Temple Ramat Zion Texas Hold-em Charity Poker Tournament to be held on Sunday October 21 at Temple Ahavat Shalom.

Other opportunities to win big include our famous 50/50 cash drawing (final selection can win $1,000), a raffle and a silent auction.

This year we are holding our tournament along with the Men of Temple Ramat Zion. Also, a portion of the Men of TAS proceeds will benefit the TAS Early Childhood Education Center. Various sponsorship opportunities are available on the registration form for those who want to help the Men of TAS and the Men of Temple Ramat Zion fund important activities in support of their temple and local community. Other contributions may include future local sports tickets (Dodgers, Lakers, Clippers, Rams, Chargers, Galaxy, LAFC, UCLA, USC, etc.) and upcoming entertainment (tickets to local concerts or plays) that can be used for auction items or raffle prizes.
Please forward our invitation to all your poker playing friends so that we can make this event a rousing success. You can download a copy of the flyer here. We have always had a fun tournament and this year’s will be no exception. No player needs to be expert to have a great time! Please register now to ensure your space as our seating is limited to the first 120 people. Please call Howard Miller at (818) 993-0796 if you have any questions.
We’re also exploring a parallel boardgaming event (if there is sufficient interest) for those under 18, or those that don’t play poker. To RSVP for that, click here.
