RUDERMAN SYNAGOGUE INCLUSION PROJECT
Temple Aliyah is pleased to announce that we are honored to have been selected to be part of the The Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project (RSIP) this coming year. RSIP is a partnership between CJP and the Ruderman Family Foundation to support synagogues in creating communities where people of all abilities are valued equally and participate fully. At Temple Aliyah we have long aspired to be a dynamic and egalitarian Conservative congregation with a warm and inviting atmosphere. While we are excited about our recent efforts to be even more inclusive, including our Mental Health Initiative launched this year, we know there is more we can and should do. We’re delighted to join with others in the Boston area to highlight the importance of inclusion — and to develop our own strengths in this area.
ALIYAH ASSIST is TA's online sign-up system that makes volunteering easy! Volunteers may choose from many different synagogue-related projects for which assistance is needed. Some are one-time tasks with "no strings attached," while others are short-term or recurring. Pick one that fits your interests and your availability! Just click here to peruse our 'help wanted' list of tasks. Thank you for exploring ways to connect with and support our synagogue community.

In celebration of Rabbi Perkins’ more than 25 years at Temple Aliyah, here is this week's question: Do you know how many books are in the Rabbi’s Office library at the synagogue? If you guessed 1,223 you would be correct! What would you add to your own home library to round it out Jewishly? Here are some suggested books you might want to consider.
