1. MoTAS is Here to Help
Our President, Howard Miller, wants everyone to know that our men’s group has talents, expertise, and friendly guys willing to help our fellow congregants in the time of need during the pandemic. If there is something one of our members might be able to help you with, even just a friendly voice, you are welcome to call Howard at (818) 993-0796. He will help find someone who can answer your questions, find people to provide a friendly call, and work with our Caring Community to help with various needs.
2. DINING DOES GOOD GIVES BACK – TUE MAY 12
Thank you to all of our TAS friends who participated in “Take Out Tuesday” at Chi’s Chinese this week. Chi, the owner, and Marco, the son and manager, always take care of MoTAS for our fundraising activities and it was good to give them some help when all restaurants are in need. We were told that somewhere around two dozen TAS families participated.
On Tuesday May 12, let’s help out Rosie’s BBQ, another privately owned restaurant that has always been there for MoTAS and TAS. Be sure to ask the desk to let Dmitri the owner know that TAS and The Men of TAS are there to give back.
3. MAY MENS HANGOUT – SUN MAY 17
A Men Only discussion is planned for Sunday evening May 17 at 7pm via Zoom. Bob Levine will facilitate the discussion; contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating. All men are welcome to attend.
4. FINAL MONTH: OUR ANNUAL APPEAL FOR MOTAS AND TAS PRIDE
MoTAS normally runs our appeal starting with the Men’s Shabbat in January, and ending on May 31. We’re now in May, so this is our final appeal month for this year. Our annual operating budget depends on the generous contributions of our temple members — now more than ever, as we don’t know what will happen with some of our future events. We use the funds to run our organization, support the ECEC and Religious School, and the Temple. In combination with our other fundraising activities, we support the costs of Camperships, the Avodah Program, the free pancake breakfast, Confirmation L’Taken, and many more activities and benefits that are not part of the Temple budget. If you would like to help us, visit support.tasnorthridge-motas.org. Let’s show that 100% of our active members participate, even if it is just for $18.
5. MOTAS ELECTION RESULTS
At our May e-Meeting, we held our elections for the officers for our 2020-2021 programming year. It was unanimous — our current officers will be returning for another year, and with their wise leadership we will come out of this … adventure … stronger and more united. We look forward to their creativity and ideas.
The minutes from the May meeting will be in the next weekly.
