1. MAN OF THE YEAR DINNER HONORING FRANK SORONOW SAT MAR 2 / RSVPS DUE BY FEB 19
At the MoTAS Shabbat on January 11th, Frank Soronow was announced as the MoTAS Man of the Year. The MRJ Man of the Year Dinner, where our honoree will be feted, together with the honorees from other MRJcongregations from the MRJ Pacific Southwest region, is Saturday, March 2, 2019 at Temple Beth Hillel in Valley Village.

2. FEBRUARY MEMBERSHIP MEETING – SUN FEB 10 – STORYTELLING WITH PHYLLIS MEYERS (THE RABBI’S WIFE)
The next monthly meeting of the Men of TAS will be on Sunday morning, February 10, 2019. For a change, this will be a normal meeting, with our wonderful MoTAS breakfast at 8:45am, followed by a short business meeting at 9am. For our speaker, we have made arrangements with our Rebbetzin (Rabbi Kalfus’ wife), Phyllis Meyers, to provide a program. She will give us a little bit of her background so that we can get to know her. She is a Jewish themed story teller and will choose a number of stories with a deeper meaning that The Men of TAS will appreciate. Please feel free to bring a potential active member with you to the meeting.
3. MEN’S SEDER PLANNING
Our annual Men’s Seder, which will be joint with Temple Beth Hillel and held at Temple Ahavat Shalom, will be Sunday, April 7 at 5pm. Mark your calendars now; we plan to open registration next week. We are looking for volunteers to help prepare the traditional Seder foods: Charoset, Hard Boiled Eggs, etc., as well as volunteers to help shop, set up and clean up If you would be interesting in help with this event, please contact Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org. For the meal itself, we’re planning on bringing food in from Stonefire Grill — introducing the men of Temple Beth Hillel to our Men’s Seder tradition of BBQ and Ice Cream.
