Join us Tuesday August 9 at 10:30 for a very special program about our Czech Torah, which survived the Holocaust. Steve
and Rebecca Reinstein visited the Memorial Scrolls Trust in London, the custodian of over a 1000 Torah brought there from Prague to be saved and restored. Pembroke Pines Jewish Center has one of these precious Toras as part of a 99-year loan program to preserve and honor these rare scrolls. Steve and Rebecca will share the history of this torah and the remarkable story of the way the scrolls were saved. They’ll include a “tour” of the Trust. Steve is preparing a special section of the PPJC
webpage for our Torah. We are connecting with other congregations who have one of these Torah in Florida and around the world. Call Sally Gevis 954-437-7972) to reserve lunch at no charge. Everyone is welcome.
Are you ready for fall fashions? Then join us Tuesday August 30 at noon for a fashion show featuring Chico’s and starring our own members as runway models.

We’ll start with a salad lunch with your choice of poached salmon or grilled chicken, rolls, coleslaw, all the trimmings, coffee, tea, and dessert.
