The Karma of Things and Sparking Joy

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED for the Temple's Annual Rummage Sale

Maybe it's the Marie Kondo influence that has produced many donations for this year's sale. Our rooms are filled, and more drop-offs are anticipated!

Moreover, a number of our Temple families and hardest-working volunteers had family conflicts this year, and we could use your help.  We are greatly in need of help as a result.

Of course we can use help during the Rummage Sale (Saturday, August 17, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday, August 18, 8 a.m. to 12 noon), but to stage a successful event we start earlier and on the Sunday stay later for cleanup.
