1. SUKKAH BUILDING – SUN OCT 13 @ 8AM
JEWISH MEN WITH TOOLS (MoTAS) will be building our temple Sukkah on Sunday October 13. This easy job can be completed in about an hour and needs to be as the school hopes to use it that morning. We cannot build it before then because of the High Holidays. Please come with gloves, Allen wrenches, and friends. Please let Howard (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if YOU can shop for chicken wire and zip ties. Although we believe we have a source lined up for palm fronds, if you know of an alternative source, please let us know. If YOU have a truck available to pick up the palm fronds, we would appreciate that also. We will have bagels and drinks. Please let us know if you can be there to help out!
2. OCTOBER POKER TOURNAMENT – OCT 27 – REGISTRATION OPEN
MoTAS is organizing our 2nd Annual Texas Hold-em Poker Tournament on Sunday October 27. 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 2019 Men of TAS Texas Hold-em Charity Poker Tournament to be held on Sunday October 27 at Temple Ahavat Shalom. This year’s winner will earn $1,000 and there will be cash prizes for everyone making the final table. Other opportunities to win big include our famous 50/50 cash drawing (final selection can win $1,000), a raffle and a silent auction. In addition, there will be $3,000 in total prizes to the players at the final table in addition to the cash prize for the high hand of the night.
Your $85 entry fee entitles you to a players seat, a lite dinner, a drink and five raffle tickets.
- $100 bonus chip for new player registered by a returning player. This will put you 10% ahead of other players when you hear “Shuffle up and deal!”

Various sponsorship opportunities are available on the registration form for those who want to help the Men of TAS 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 from poker.tasnorthridge-motas.org . 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.
3. ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A MENS HANGOUT?
We are exploring bringing back the Men’s Hangouts that we used to hold. To do that, we need two things: hosts and attendees. For those that don’t remember the Men’s Hangouts, they are usually held on a Sunday evening, and provide a space for men to talk about men’s issues in an open environment of other men. What is said in the room stays in the room. The event can include dinner (or not), and refreshments (or not).
If you are interested in hosting or attending, you can sign up at https://volunteersignup.org/WFQH9.
