Lots of Brotherhood happenings: Latkes, Toys, Poker and More!

Nov. 12’s Monday Night Football Poker Tournament was a huge hit. Sadly, I wasn’t able to be there, but Brotherhood had dozens of players, great food, lots of prizes. We’re looking forward to our March Madness Poker Tournament, coming up fast!

This year’s Chanukah Toy Drive, to benefit Jewish Children & Family Services, ends today. So far, Brotherhood has delivered carloads of toys to JCFS, which will be distributed to needy kids in the Bay Area. We’d like to thank everyone for their generosity. As Brotherhood president Fred Sturm writes,

What a thrill to see the boxes overflowing with so many beautiful toys — a reminder, this time of year, for all of us to give thanks for how fortunate we are.

Please join us Erev Shabbat on Friday, Dec. 7, for the annual Latke Fry and Dreidel Spin. We begin frying the latkes at 4:00pm. Services start at 7:00pm. The latkes are served at the oneg after services. Please bring your chanukiyah for our family candle lighting!

Mark your calendars for the next two Brotherhood board meetings. We’ll be planning future events, such as our Purim Carnival and the March Madness Poker Tournament:

Dec. 3, 6:00pm, at Amici’s Pizza, 68 Third Ave., San Mateo
Jan. 8, 6:00pm, at Gau Paong, 1208 South El Camino, Real San Mateo

Be sure to bookmark the Brotherhood page on our new, improved PTS Web site, so you can keep up with all our many events!
