Torah Study with Rabbi Boraz Moved to Thursday at 6pm
The Guide gathering continues Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. at the Roth Center. Come join us as we continue our study of one of the most fascinating and complex philosophic work in Judaism, The Guide for the Perplexed by Moses Maimonides.
Bnai Mitzvah Tutors Needed
The UVJC is in need of Bnai Mitzvah tutors for the coming term. We have a large number of students in the 6th grade who will need bnai mitzvah mentoring in the coming months and for the coming year. It is a wonderful opportunity to make a significant impact on the lives of these young students that will last a lifetime. If you are interested, please contact Rabbi (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>).

JOKE OF THE WEEK:
Whether you like President Obama or not, I think you will find it hard not to like this video of him singing Sexy and I Know It by LMFAO. Someone found clips of him saying every word in the song in his presidential speeches and decided to make this mashup. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWgO9-AIROI&feature=related
This is Rachel Funk, blitz me with any comments, questions, or concerns. Enjoy this Lovely Spring Weather!
