New Mentoring Opportunity
We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to participate in our newly revamped mentoring program at McClure. We're getting some very promising results from a combination of individual reading sessions and group work. The results last year were remarkable. Please zip a note to Rabbi Fitzerman who will put you in touch with Jay Pendrak, our Community Development professional at McClure. There are also openings for traditional social mentors who work with our kids in an informal way. The address for Rabbi Fitzerman is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do You Sew, Knit, or Crochet?
We'd love to have you join the Elijah Cloakmakers! The group works throughout the year to craft lap quilts and other comforting garments for members who are hospitalized, recovering from illness, or undergoing treatment. Please call Rabbi Fitzerman's Office at (918) 583-7121 to sign up for special mailings.
The Altamont Bakery Project
Hundreds of cookies are now going out the door of the Synagogue every week. This is our new effort on behalf of the formerly homeless, mentally ill residents of many Mental Health Association facilities. Please call Betty Lehman at (918) 583-7121 to volunteer. Think of Altamont chocolate chip cookies when you celebrate a special event. The retail price is $24 for a baker's dozen. If you'd like to try selling our cookies and are ready to place a standing order, the price drops to $18 a dozen. We'd love to do business with you!
Invite a Teacher for America to Dinner
Interested in extending hospitality to a Jewish member of the Tulsa cohort? Please make contact with Alice Blue at (918) 810-1151. It doesn't have to be for Shabbat; how about a simple pizza dinner with you and your family?
Challah Baking Continues Forever
Challah baking on Wednesday evenings will continue until the coming of the Messiah and beyond. Sessions begin at 5:45 p.m. and conclude by 6:30 p.m. Call Ann at (918) 583-7121 to reserve a space. No charge to participants; all are welcome!
The Synagogue Archive
If you're cleaning out the basement, closing out a house, rummaging through old papers, or dumping out drawers, please be on the lookout for photographs, documents, and other ephemera that will help us tell the story of the Synagogue. Call Betty Lehman at (918) 583-7121 if you need mass quantities picked up at your home.
Art from the Heart
The purpose of Art from the Heart is to give framed artwork to the residents of community-supported housing in the Tulsa area. A tax deduction for your donation is available. For info about pick-up and delivery of your artwork, call Dr. Melissa Weiss at (918) 260-2294.
