Adult Learning: A series of discussions on “Shared Scriptures, Different Understandings, Traditions, and Beliefs” will be led by Bill Kalish and Vit Gulbis on Tuesdays, Jan. 9, 16 and 23 from 7-8:30 p.m. Jews and Christians share many of the ancient writings that comprise the Bible. The shared scriptures are read in different ways by different faith traditions. These lectures confront the very timely subject of ethics, values and morals, what is basic and what is aspirational. Class participation is encouraged. RSVP online or call the Temple Office (813) 876-2377.

Sisterhood baking project: The Sisterhood will begin baking hamantaschen in January in preparation for sales on Sunday, Jan. 28 from 9-11:45 a.m. The project begins with hamantashen dough making on Sunday, Jan. 7 at 9 a.m. then with baking sessions at 9 a.m. on Jan. 17 and 24, 6 p.m. on Jan. 24, and 9 a.m. on Jan 28 and 31 and Feb. 4. This is a project the Sisterhood takes on every year for Purim, with proceeds from the sales going to the congregation’s religious school. Call the temple for more information at (813) 876-2377.

Helping out at Christmas: Volunteers are needed for two Christmas mitzvah projects. Congregant Debbie Steinfeld is organizing volunteers to go to the Wesley Memorial Methodist Church in Town ‘n Country to prepare and serve Christmas dinner for those in need. Volunteers will work 10 a.m. to noon preparing and setting up at the church, and then beginning at 2 p.m., they will serve and clean up. Contact Steinfeld at (813) 995-1394 or The congregation will also send volunteers to the Children’s Home, a residential facility for children in need, on Christmas morning to prepare and serve a breakfast for residents and staff.

Additionally, the congregation will send a contingent to Metropolitan Ministries on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to serve a meal, but those volunteer slots are already filled.
