JOIN US FOR A SPECIAL EVENING
WITH GUEST SPEAKER
6 p.m., Shabbat service
7:15 p.m., dinner and speaker
Andrea Goldman is a 32-year-old wife and mother of an adorable, active two-year-old boy. If you saw her on the street, you would think she was a healthy, strong woman living a “normal” life. What you wouldn’t guess is that Andrea is a double-lung transplant recipient and is celebrating two years of her second chance at life!
Please join us for Shabbat dinner and the opportunity to hear Andrea tell her incredible story. Preceding the dinner, Rabbi David will lead us in Shabbat services, including a D’var Torah to educate us on the Jewish laws and misconceptions about organ donation.
Dinner will be catered by Vermont Kosher. Dinner is $18 per adult and free for children 12 and under. Vegetarian options available.
Please call the JCOGS office at 802-253-1800 by Monday, July 24, to RSVP.

We hope you will join us for this meaningful evening.
