Join us in helping Etz Chaim collect donations for “Dress for Success”

Dress for Success: A Mitzvah Project

Temple Shalom and Congregation Etz Chaim are jointly involved in a project where we collect good quality used clothing and accessories for low income women to wear to a job interview. We have a clothing rack set up near the office, labeled “Dress for Success” and donations can be put there anytime when the temple is open. An Etz Chaim member picks up these items on a regular basis and delivers them to a specialty shop in Bentonville. Women who are eligible to shop there get what they need at no cost.To read more about Dress for Success – http://dressforsuccess.org

Israeli Wine Tasting

Wednesday, April 15 at 6:30pm

Emelia’s has always wanted to do a traditional Middle Eastern wine tasting, but could never find wines they liked enough to feature. But now, thanks to the Israeli wine industry’s emergence to world-class status and Arkansas’ importation of fine Israeli wines, Emelia’s is doing it! The dinner will pair four Israeli wines with four traditional Middle Eastern dishes at $35 per person.

Seating will begin at 6:30pm and the presentation will start promptly at 7pm. Call 479-527-9800 for reservations or questions.

The owners are Syrian Armenians, who understand all too well the neighborhood Israel lives in. They deserve our support for what should be a great night. (And what a nice way to celebrate the end of Tax Day, while we’re at it!)

Reservations are required, and the seats are filling up, so don’t wait!

Jewish Food & Cultural Festival

Again this year, the 2015 Jewish Food Festival will include traditional Jewish foods such as old fashioned corned beef sandwiches, lox, bagels and cream cheese, kosher hot dogs, rugelach and many more wonderful Jewish delicacies. Want a traditional Israeli meal of kabobs, falafel and Israeli salad? Then the 2015 Jewish Food Festival is the place to be.

The Jewish Food Festival will also feature cultural and religious booths that will showcase various aspects of Jewish life from Arkansas to ancient Israel. Learn about Jewish holidays and life cycle customs and enjoy an exciting kid’s area with plenty of activities from face painting to a whole area for jumping activities.

Entertainment throughout the day will include contemporary and traditional Jewish music.

Admission is Free! The event will begin with a special Jewish Breakfast at 8:30 am.
