Did You Know...?

Beth El is raising funds for a new playground?

 

With seed money from Cantor Jason Kaufman's concert, the JCCNV was able to start a fund with all proceeds going towards a new playground for the preschool.  If you would like to donate towards this very worthy project, simply send your donations to Beth El Hebrew Congregation and notate "Playground."  If you donate on line, the playground fund is first on the list!
 

Our next communal dinner will be Friday, April 28. RSVP to the Beth El office
