StantonKIDS on Shabbat Morning, 10:30am

The children of Stanton had great fun decorating the Sukkah this past Sunday. This Shabbat, StantonKIDS is back this Shabbat, October 22, with more Sukkot-themed fun! All children are invited for songs, prayers, games and snacks centered around the Sukkot holiday. The program will begin at 10:30am and meets downstairs in the beit midrash.

This week's StantonKIDS is sponsored by Larissa and Ami Nahari in honor of Eitan and Ivri's birthday. Happy birthday!

Simchat Torah at Stanton!

Simchat Torah is the time we celebrate the end of the past year's cycle of Torah reading and the beginning of the new one. It's one of the most joyous and most fun of all the Jewish holidays, where we dance with the Torah, drink some schnapps, and where traditionally everyone who wants to gets called up to the Torah.

Take part in the merriment at our Maariv services on Monday, October 24, where we'll have hakafot (dancing with the Torah) for both men and women (in separate circles), and come again on the morning of Tuesday, October 25, for more hakafot and Torah reading. We have a traditional Torah reading upstairs and a women's only Torah reading downstairs so ALL who want to get an aliyah can do so. See above for the complete schedule!

I Am Woman, Hear Me Layn: Women's-Only Torah Reading and Hakafot for Simchat Torah, October 25

All women are invited to participate in Stanton's Women's Only Torah Reading on Simchat Torah morning, October 25.

Instead of waiting around upstairs while the menfolk get aliyot, join us in the beit midrash downstairs for a reading of Parashat V'Zot Ha'bracha and get your own aliyah! The reading is by women and for women only. The men and women will come together upstairs for the readings of the end and beginning of the Torah.

Women also will have our own Torah-dancing circle for hakafot on Simchat Torah night and day.

Please join us for lively dancing and singing for ALL!

Volunteering at Stanton

One of the many strengths of our shul is the variety and multiple talents and abilities of our congregants. It takes a lot to run our shul and our programming, and we can probably use your help. Are you a tech guru, web design aficionado, or social media wiz? A master event planner, fundraiser, or program coordinator? An accountant, lawyer, or investment professional? A trained carpenter, electrician, or contractor? If you have any of these or other skills, professional or amateur, that you'd like to contribute to Stanton, speak to Rabbi Bodner, Rivky Friedman, or another member of the board and let's think about how we can help make Stanton flourish together.

Planned Giving at Stanton

Looking for a way to give back to Stanton, not right now, but maybe at some point in the future? Consider planning a long-term gift to the shul. We encourage anyone interested in discussing various ways to plan a gift now that will be given in the future to contact Board members Michael Gordon or Rivky Friedman, or Rabbi Bodner. There are many ways to go about planned giving and we are happy to discuss the various options that might work for you.
