JCC Adds More B-Ball Tryouts

Mail For Chanukah

A call from a parent alerted the Jewish Community Center in West
Bloomfield that tryouts for the Kenny Goldman Basketball League
were scheduled on Sunday, Oct. 8, the second day of Sukkot.
More than 650 kids ages 6-16 comprise the league, and about a
dozen of them are Orthodox or otherwise observant of Sukkot, said
Bruce Wineman, JCC sports and recreation director.
Tryouts still will be held Oct. 8 with an additional tryout added at
6:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 9.
The tryouts place the children in six brackets for boys ages 6 and
younger, and ages 16 and younger, for the season that runs from Oct. 8
to Dec. 17. Girls are in one bracket, ages 14 and younger.
Wineman said tryouts probably won't be needed in most cases. "We
already know most of the kids," he said. "After seeing them play, we
can place them."

Beginning next week, area post offices should begin offering a
stamp created to celebrate Chanukah.
The dreidel stamp, created in 2004 and used in 2005, will be
revalued for the current 39-cent postal rate.
If a post office does not have the stamp in stock by Oct. 15,
Ronald Scheiman, founder of the Quest for Annual Hanukkah
Stamps, suggests sending an e-mail to the postmaster general at
pmgceo@email.usps.gov, and a copy to Scheiman at hanukkah@
myspeedworks.com ."
Scheiman, a retired postal employee living in Florida, also sug-
gests: "Buy extra Chanukah stamps and use them even past the
holiday season. Let us show the United States Post Office that there
is a demand for the Chanukah stamp."
And he added,
"If your local post
office puts up a
Christmas display,
insist that they put
up a Chanukah
menorah, without
a Star of David on
it, as well. If the
postmaster or any
supervisor tells
you a menorah is
not an accepted
decoration, tell him
to look in the Post
Office Operations
Manual, section
124.55,e and
These entries,
which Scheiman
was instrumental in having changed, states that a Chanukah meno-
rah is an acceptable seasonal display.

Traveling Sukkot Services

Congregation B'nai Moshe will be celebrating Simchat Torah this year
not in the synagogue, but at four different locations on the Eugene and
Marcia Applebaum Jewish Community Campus in West Bloomfield
— all as an outreach to the Jewish elderly in the community.
Rabbi Elliot Pachter and Cantor Earl Berris will lead the traveling
service that will begin at 6:15 p.m. Oct. 14 with singing at Fleischman
Residence, followed by Minchah services and a Torah celebration
at 6:30 p.m. at Danto. From 7-7:45 p.m., the group will move to
Hechtman Apartments for Ma'ariv, haka-
fot and a snack. From 8-8:45 p.m. at Meer
Apartments, the clergy will conclude the
hakafot, do Torah reading and enjoy a
snack. Singing, dancing and the joyous cel-
ebration will be spread through the evening.
The traveling services are open to the
community, and provide service for those
not able to attend a synagogue. Families of
residents are encouraged to join the fun. All
the facilities are within walking distance.
For more information, call B'nai Moshein
West Bloomfield, (248) 788-0600.

Cantor Berris
