Nearly 150 congregants turned out for a kickoff barbeque in the Tikvat Israel social hall on Sept. 10 that included grilled hot dogs and hamburgers (including two varieties of vegetarian burgers) and slices of watermelon and brownies plus a kitchen “yard sale,” which was part of the TI kitchen cleanout. The major attraction was a volunteer fair that promoted about 20 opportunities for member involvement. The volunteer options ranged widely. These included groups promoting Israel affairs and supporting fellow members in bereavement to committees responsible for the synagogue’s website and the revival of the men’s club.
