Robyn wants to hear from you:
>> We are updating our email and phone list to make sure that you will receive announcements about what's going on in our area regarding Jewish Heritage and Events. What is the best email address and phone number for us to use? Let me stress that this information will only be used to inform you of events, activities, and future planning for the Summerville/North Area Jewish Community.
>> A number of Summerville area Jewish residents have asked about having a traveling Rabbi conduct Yizkor (Memorial) or other services. We are looking into this. Would you like to know more about this and what ideas do you have?
>> If you have friends who would also like to know what's going on in our Summerville/North Area Jewish Community, please have them send me an email.
Have a good week and hope to see you soon!
