Mark your calendars for 7:00 PM, Jan. 30, and attend our special L'dor Vador Shabbat.

This service will honor the generations of members who have served PTS and contributed to its strength and legacy. L'dor Vador is Hebrew for "From Generation to Generation." Organized by PTS Brotherhood, L'dor Vador Shabbat will be led by members of the Brotherhood, past and present.

The service starts a half hour earlier than normal, at 7:00 PM. Grandparents, bring bring your children and grandchildren. Grandchildren, invite your grandparents!

During the service, Rabbi Feder will invite grandparents up to the bimah for a special blessing. Also during the service, Brotherhood will honor Dr. Bert Solomon for his contributions of leadership, wisdom, and love of Peninsula Temple Sholom.

At 5:30 PM, prior to the service, Brotherhood is organizing dinner for families. The cost is $10 per adult and $5 per child.

In addition to Cantor Barry, music will include songs led by Michael Battat, our religious school song instructor.

We look forward to seeing you there!
