Congregational Dinner and Honors to Rabbi Saks Dec 13
On Friday, December 13, the congregation will honor Rabbi Bob Saks for his extraordinary service and dedication to Bet Mishpachah over the last year. Between the time that Rabbi Toby Manewith left Washington in June 2012 to return to her hometown of Chicago, and Rabbi Laurie Green began serving the congregation in July 2013, Bet Mishpachah needed rabbinical support. Rabbi Saks stepped in and provided the services the congregation needed. Because the congregation will be forever grateful to him (and his wife, Loretta), it has planned a special event to acknowledge and honor Rabbi Saks for his service. While the dinner is sold out, please join us for the service at 8:00 pm at the DCJCC.

All Bet Mishpachah members are invited to attend the congregation’s annual meeting on Sunday, December 15 at the DCJCC Community Hall. There will be a brunch at 11:00am; the business portion of the meeting will begin about 30 minutes later. The meeting will include reports from Rabbi Laurie Green, congregational president Joel Wind, and congregational treasurer Allan Armus.

Movie and Chinese on Dec 25
It’s December and Bet Mishpachah has you covered on Dec. 25th. It is a long-standing tradition in our Bet Mishpachah family that we go out on December 25th for a movie and Chinese food. Jack and Charlie are organizing this for us this year. They would like to see “August: Osage County”, a film version of the prize winning Tracy Lett’s Pulitzer Prize winning play. This movie has an all star cast, including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Abigail Breslin, Sam Shepard, and Chris Cooper. As we know more details, we will fill you in (Metro-accessible theater, restaurant). A good time is had by all; so sign up now – even with out knowing all the details – by emailing email@example.com.
