Happy New Year my friends,

The Men of Temple Ahavat Shalom and I wish the very best for you and your family.

As you know, MoTAS, along with Sisterhood, champions our temple children and overall membership by paying for important expenses that are not in the Temple budget. Annually, we bring enjoyment to our community by serving our annual Shabbabaque, free pancake breakfast and the Tu B’shevat Seder. We fund the Avodah and Campership programs to assist parents in paying for their children’s Jewish communal experiences. We also support the Temple Gala, Cantor’s Concert and other Temple and religious school events.

Last year, MoTAS paid for the installation of a campus-wide WiFi system that ties together the security cameras and alarm system installed under the 2017 FEMA security grant. The new WiFi system will enable our leadership and first responders to observe every camera location and communicate from anywhere on or off campus via secure cell phone links. The WiFi system will also enable you to get sports scores and email during services when we finally meet again in the sanctuary or social hall.

The Men of TAS helped improve the welcoming appearance of the temple by painting the main parking lot gates and surrounding fence without making a mess.

Using money provided by your generous TAS Pride donations, William Moalem designed and created the beautiful decorative plant area in front of the school office.

Our temple community has gone through a lot with COVID-19. After learning that a number of families had lost jobs and were in deep financial difficulty, The Men of TAS decided we could and should step in to help. After all, if our member families are in trouble, our Temple community is hurting. MoTAS provided gift cards that would support a week or two of groceries to help our friends get through their current hardship. We helped about nine families, some of them twice. Very few of the contributions MoTAS has made to TAS have been as rewarding as the ability to help our families in need.

Over the last year, The Men of TAS invested over $13,000 toward the success and enjoyment of our temple community.

We rely on the financial support of temple members to help us succeed. Please consider helping The Men of TAS achieve our goal to promote our temple and champion Jewish values. We appreciate contributions of any size.

If our goals inspire you, I invite you to join The Men of TAS at our monthly Zoom meetings. See the MoTAS Weekly or the TAS Northridge publication for our next Men of TAS meeting or call Howard Miller at (818) 993-0796. If you would like to help, please:

  • Check out our website http://www.tasnorthridge-motas.org.
  • Use the forms linked on this page to financially assist the Men of TAS achieve even greater success in the coming year.
  • Your TAS Pride contribution will help create additional campus beautification projects.

Please consider helping The Men of TAS achieve our goal to promote our temple and champion Jewish values. Those who contribute $100 or more are recognized on our MoTAS Wall of Honor.  We appreciate contributions of any size.

If our goals inspire you, I invite you to join The Men of TAS at our free and friendly monthly brunch.  See the TAS Northridge calendar for our next Men of TAS Sunday meeting or call Howard Miller at (818) 993-0796.  Encourage your friends and family to:

With great appreciation,

Howard Miller

P.P.S. If you would also like to specifically support MoTAS in our temple beautification projects, the attached form has a segment for additional contributions to what we call “TAS Pride”. This money will go specifically for the further beautification of our temple buildings, grounds and play areas.  This year it will be used to help pay for the paint and tools for beautifying our security gates and the fencing along our parking lot.
