March 2019 Men's Club Message

SPRING HAS FINALLY SPRUNG

This winter has been the ninth wettest for St. Louis since records have been kept. My backyard has almost finally dried out. Just in time for the spring showers. But the day of the World Wide Wrap was dry (photos on pages 2-3). After learning about the background and reason for Tefillin and how to wrap it, the group enjoyed a nosh of bagels, cream cheese, Danish, coffee, milk and orange juice.

MAN AND YOUTH OF THE YEAR

We send our best wishes and a hearty Mazel Tov to Bill Solomon, the Men’s Club’s 2019 Man of the year and to Yael Portman, the Men’s Club’s 2019 Youth of the Year. We are honored to have such accomplished members of Kol Rinah. They will be toasted and presented with their respective award on Sunday, March 31, at 1:30 p.m. during a luncheon at Congregation B’nai Amoona.

EAST SIDE REUNION

Men’s Club members Herb Goldman and Don Singer are working on producing a reunion of families formerly from the East Side (Illinois). The event is to include everyone in the Jewish community whose roots are in East St. Louis, Belleville, and other East Side communities. The event is planned for June.
