AROUND THE SHABBAT TABLE: The Shabbat meal is a wonderful opportunity to strengthen our families, community and connection to G-d. The Around the Shabbat Table Campaign encourages each family to include three elements at their meal:
1) Share the Torah Insight
2) Sing a Jewish Song
3) Refrain from Gossip-Celelebrate Positive Speech
Suggested Torah topic for your Shabbat table: According to the Talmud, Elijah the Prophet said that jesters would merit "the world to come." What other professions would you add? Did you ever have a teacher who employed humor in his or her teachings? If so, what was the effect?
Please note: the Tzomet microphone system is under repair and will not be functioning this weekend. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

CAS is looking to upgrade our office computer systems. Why is this important? ¨ Some of the machines are more than 7 years old. ¨ None of them can run the updated version of our synagogue database (called ChaverWare) Ideally, we would like to obtain 7 identical PC's, either by buying them new or by accepting donated PC's if they are available. The minimum requirements are dual 64 cpu's, 2ghz or better, 2gb RAM & 80gb hard drives. We already have 4 up-to-date flatscreen monitors, so new monitors are not a priority. We have been quoted roughly $625 per machine not inc luding setup and software costs.
