From the Rabbi:
This year, Temple Shalom's Purim Celebration will be held on Wednesday evening, March 4th. In keeping with the festive nature of the holiday, everyone is encouraged, although not required, to come in costume. Each person coming in costume will be given due recognition.
The evening will begin at 6:30 P.M. with a pot-luck supper. Those planning to attend are requested to bring a dairy or fish (no shell fish) dish or salad. You don't have to let me know in advance what you are bringing. Hamantaschen will be supplied by the temple, so do not bring desserts.
Following the supper, song sheets and graggers will be distributed in the sanctuary. We will sing Purim songs, followed by the reading of the Book of Esther in English by members of the congregation. Congregants will make noise with their graggers and stamp their feet whenever the name of the villain, Haman, is mentioned. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A READING PART, LET ME KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. PARTS WILL BE ASSIGNED ON A FIRST COME - FIRST SERVED BASIS.
ADMISSION IS FREE AND NO RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. HOWEVER, WE NEED SPONSORS TO PAY FOR THE HAMANTASCHEN AND OTHER REQUIRED INCIDENTALS. If you would like to serve as a sponsor of the Purim Celebration, make out a check for $18 to Temple Shalom and write "Purim" in the "Memo" section on the check. Give the check to me personally or mail it to me at 199 Lakeside Crossing Drive, Conway, SC 29526. The names of all sponsors will be announced at the Purim Celebration and will be listed in the April issue of the temple bulletin.
Purim is a fun holiday. Don't miss it.

Dear Temple Members & Friends,
After a very cold winter especially for the South we look forward to a warm and bright season ahead of us. We celebrate two of our favorite holidays: Purim, March 4th and Passover, April 3rd. You will find the Passover flyer and reservation form in this bulletin. Please do not hesitate to make your reservation. We have always had a wonderful time at both of these holidays.
We look forward to the move to our new home for Temple Shalom this spring. The renovations are going well and I must tell you-it is a remarkable difference from when we purchased the building. I know we will all be pleased with the end result. Our lease on our current building is up on May 31st and as long as Horry County is ready to gives us our occupancy certificate by that date it all should work out to our satisfaction.
Our Congregational meeting is scheduled for May 20th. We certainly hope to hold it in the new building at 4023 Belle Terre Blvd, Myrtle Beach. That will be a wonderful way to mark our 10th year.
On June 7, 2015 we will have a wonderful celebration for all of us and our friends. More information will be going out by the first of April. Please save the date. We are pleased to have businesses and members that are sponsoring this event. If you would like to be a sponsor please contact Natalie Kramer.
If you have plans to travel north in the next few weeks be safe. If you are planning a trip overseas be attentive and travel safely.
