Here's Your Chance
We want to feature a photograph each week to accompany this Synagogue
List. Your congregations are busy doing special things all the time. This is a
great place to showcase them. We're looking for candid photographs
featuring action — nothing posed. Please submit photos to us for considera-
tion. We will share the wealth and rotate among the congregations.
We prefer digital images sent by e-mail. High resolution. High quality.
Timely. Not too many people. Full identification — name and city as well as
the ages of children.
With your photos, send information about the event — what, who, when,
where and why. Include a contact and daytime phone number. Send it all to
Sy Manello at email@example.com or call (248) 351-5147.
The way we prepare the special
Shabbat meal — from shopping to
baking to tasting the food — is an
indication of how we honor the
